DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – American Flat Track has announced its NBCSN broadcast schedule for the upcoming season.
American Flat Track telecasts reached 41 percent more viewers in 2018 than in its inaugural year of 2017. This spike in viewership delivered a record-breaking total of more than two million viewers tuning in during prime weekend programming slots.
“NBC Sports has provided the platform for American Flat Track to reach millions of new fans across the U.S.,” said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. “With strong weekend programming slots and exciting storylines both on and off the track, we are forging the path to another record-breaking year for AFT in 2019.”
NBCSN, NBC Sports’ widely-distributed 24/7 dedicated linear sports network, has established itself as the Home of Motorsports in America. In addition to providing coverage of American Flat Track, NBCSN is also the home for NASCAR, IndyCar, Mecum Auctions, IMSA, Lucas Oil Pro Motocross and Monster Energy Supercross.
“American Flat Track has become a staple of our racing line-up on NBCSN,” said Jeff Macaluso, Senior Director, Programming, NBC Sports Group, “and we are excited to continue our partnership.”
American Flat Track’s telecasts on NBCSN are produced by NASCAR Productions LLC and provide viewers with a window into the dramatic world of American Flat Track. Coverage from all 18 events will feature flag-to-flag coverage of both racing classes.
Exclusive features and editorial content highlight the triumphs and tribulations of the world’s elite dirt track motorcycle racers as they battle for glory. Cutting-edge technology including aerial drone footage and onboard cameras will once again put viewers on the edge of their seats as the riders slide through the corners and draft each other down the straights at speeds of more than 130 mph.
In addition to the 18 weekend premieres, NBCSN will provide a weekday re-air of each show before they will become available on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app. FansChoice.tv, a cornerstone of American Flat Track’s digital strategy, will continue to provide live streaming coverage of every round on the calendar.
