2020 American Flat Track Schedule: Updated July 2

July 2 update: The Lima Half-Mile doubleheader at Allen County Fairgrounds has been postponed. No new date has been set, but is expected within a month.

The 2020 American Flat Track schedule has been released, with the format of nine doubleheader weekends from July to October. There are a few holes to be filled in the calendar, though the American Flat Track organizers are giving us an idea of the general location of those races.

2020 American Flat Track Schedule

Not only will there be racing, but AFT is working on getting spectators at each venue. AFT has consulted with public health experts to come up with a plan that will satisfy all levels of government at each track. Here is what AFT has planned:

  • Reduction in ticket availability to conform with state and local guidelines for sporting events.
  • Reserved seating areas to include buffer zones to provide ample space between fans.
  • Fans entering each venue will be provided with complimentary facial coverings.
  • Enhanced sanitation and disinfection protocols with frequent cleaning throughout each facility.
  • Enhancements to mobile ticketing and elimination of printed tickets.
  • Cashless, contactless transactions for concessions and merchandise.
  • Regular medical screening of staff and competitors.
  • No public access to the paddock.
  • No rider autograph sessions.
  • Fan Walk is suspended for the season.

Cable and streaming coverage will be available to fans who can’t make it to the race venues. NBCSN will air races, and all 18 events will be live-streamed on the NBC Sports Gold’s American Flat Track on TrackPass and TrackPass: All-Access subscription services.

You will likely note that some races have been canceled. If you have a ticket for a race that won’t be held, contact tickets@americanflattrack.com for a refund or credit.
