Under the bright lights of Daytona International Speedway, American Flat Track will unveil its re-envisioning of America’s most historic form of motorcycle racing as the series kicks off the 2018 season by returning inside the world’s only motorsports stadium on Thursday, March 15 for the second annual Harley-Davidson TT Presented By Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys At DAYTONA.
A New Era
2018 will mark the second-ever DAYTONA TT, an event which condenses two nights of racing formerly held at our DAYTONA Flat Track, now constructed inside the world-famous tri-oval grass field.
Last season, the DAYTONA TT marked the first time in 20 years that the AFT had raced a TT track on twin-cylinder motorcycles. The event began a new age of competition.
DAYTONA TT features two classes of bikes: Powerful, twin-cylinder motorcycles in the AFT Twins class and quick, shifty single-cylinder machines in AFT Singles.
While DAYTONA Flat Track races of the past have been held on dirt ovals, this race will be held on a one-of-a-kind 0.6-mile TT course, which has incorporated turns in both directions and a jump into the track design.
The course, designed by seven-time DAYTONA Flat Track Champion Chris Carr, will be built underneath the DAYTONA Monster Energy Supercross course. The fastest portion of the course will be a long, angling straightaway running parallel to the asphalt track, with top speeds expected to reach 100 mph.
