2023 AFT Provisional Schedule


American Flat Track has released its provisional dates for 2023 and the schedule looks good to us. The headlines are:

  • 18 rounds

  • Everything over by the end of the Labor Day weekend (the first weekend in September). Six weeks earlier than the end of the 2022 season.

  • Five miles, five half-miles, four short tracks, three TTs, (and one event still to be announced)

  • New venues: Senoia, GA, Bridgeport NJ; Ventura Short Track, CA.

  • DuQuoin Mile. Regarded as one of the best riders track there is, but hasn't been on the schedule for fear of low crowd numbers.

  • Buffalo Chip returns.

  • Sac Mile in mid-May to hopefully miss the hellish heat.

  • Castle Rock TT back after its 2022 success (pictured above)

  • Volusia is the big loser - two double headers in 2022, to no races in '23.

  • Season ends at Springfield, a race promoted by the Mees. Double pressure?
