1) It’s the kick-off of the 2017 American Flat Track season.
The first reason why you don’t want to miss the DAYTONA TT is that it’s the season opener for the rebranded series – American Flat Track. This race will feature the all-new, fire breathing AFT Twins class where you’ll see reigning champ Bryan Smith sporting the No. 1 plate for the first time, while the superstars of tomorrow race in the AFT Singles class and pave their way to the top-level ranks.
2) Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycle will faceoff.
Don’t act like you haven’t been waiting for this. Two titans will faceoff at the opening round in 2017. Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycle will begin a season long battle of head-to-head and handlebar-to-handlebar racing at the DAYTONA TT. Indian charged in last season and proved that they were ready to compete, as Joe Kopp debuted the Scout FTR750 in Santa Rosa with a win in the Dash for Cash. All the while, Brad “the bullet” Baker closed out the season with a victory for the Factory Harley-Davidson team by sweeping the track by a margin of 10.5 seconds. Now, the Harley-Davidson XG750R and the Indian Scout FTR750 will wage war on the track. This is a battle that you do not want to miss.
