For anyone who missed the live stream of the Daytona TT, it will be shown on the NBC Sports cable network tomorrow (Sunday 3/25) at 11:00am Pacific time according to AFT social media posts. Check your local listings to be sure.


Next race is the Atlanta Short Track two weeks from today. JD Beach is supposed to race again at Atlanta.

NBCSN coverage is very good. Like the one hour format for a replay. Onboard camera coverage edited in is great.

The AMA Class of '79 flat track community is holding a raffle for a new Indian Scout Bobber. The AMA Class of '79 forwards 100% of all donations to help injured riders. Its a great cause to which I've contributed in the past.

Read more about the raffle and the organization on the American Flat Track website.

Danny Eslick will race the AFT Atlanta Short Track on Saturday aboard an XR750. Hope to see Eslick at more AFT races this season.

oh, yess!!

riding Indian FTR750 & FTR1200 in the dirt

".....the FTR1200, while it exists, is being presented as a factory custom. That means there’s no official plan or intention to produce and sell FTR1200s, but since when are factories in the business of building one-off customs? After riding this new custom, we’re very keen to see it available for public consumption....."

JD Beach is fast qualifier in the Twins class. Would love to see him win one but Mees is really dominant on these banked ovals.

remember when I discussed running into Yamaha's Keith McCarty
@ 2017 Sears Point MA event, & he'd said "something's coming soon"?

I'd speculated it was gonna be a built-up MT-07 for Sammy Halbert, but.....
mebbe these G&G folks are receiving 2018 help/parts from US Yamaha?

regardless - GO Jiggy Dogg !!

Remember we have another manufacturer in the mix this weekend. Lloyd Brothers have developed another Ducati FT platform. This time with the 821cc Monster engine with some support from Ducati North America for ten events during the 2018 season; Atlanta and most of the other appearances will be at Mile races. Salinas, California resident Stevie Bonsey is the rider. Hope Ducati sees fit to fund the rest of the entire season.

great news, the Bros are cool guys,
& they're committed enuf to fund new skins for SB80 -
the "support from Duc NA" part is key to helping LBR be regularly competitive

Not so sad have to leave for a dinner in a 1/2 hour. I would have missed the main events. The track was great until the rain.

Damn, that thing is trick. Hope AMA doesn't outlaw it for not looking 50 years old like they did with the Crosley Bros. championship-winning Kawasaki.
