Daytona International Speedway to play host to America’s original extreme sport on Thursday night during Bike Week at DAYTONA

American Flat Track is pleased to announce its return to Daytona International Speedway’s legendary tri-oval for the second annual DAYTONA TT on Thursday, March 15, 2018.

Following the sport’s hugely successful debut event inside the world’s only motorsports stadium this past March, American Flat Track will be back under the lights in 2018. Fans attending Bike Week At DAYTONA festivities can look forward to another action-packed evening as the top dirt track motorcycle racers in the world battle on a custom track built directly in front of the stadium’s ”World Center of Racing” tower. To kick the action up a notch in 2018, the race circuit will be re-engineered to feature a bigger, better, and faster track design.

“I’m delighted that American Flat Track will feature again as a highlight of Bike Week,” said American Flat Track CEO Michael Lock. “The world-class facilities and a new, as yet secret, track design is sure to serve up a great evening’s racing for our fans.”

The 2018 running of the DAYTONA TT will serve as the launch point for American Flat Track’s coast-to-coast calendar, setting the stage for what’s destined to be another epic season in a sport where high-speed battles and victory margins measured by fractions of a second are the rule rather than the exception.

“The DAYTONA TT rounds out a diverse racing schedule during Bike Week that includes Supercross and road racing,” said Chip Wile, President of Daytona International Speedway. “The inaugural event was a great success and we look forward to continuing that momentum into the 2018 event.”

Tickets for the 2018 running of the DAYTONA TT will go on sale on Monday, Sept. 25 at 10 a.m. on Daytona International Speedway’s website http://www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling 1-800-PITSHOP.
