FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (June 28, 2017) – All 18 races on the 2017 American Flat Track schedule will be televised on NBCSN in a series of weekly primetime telecasts throughout the summer and fall. The network announced today the premiere airdates for the 18 one-hour shows, beginning with coverage of the season-opening Harley-Davidson DAYTONA TT presented by Politis and Matovina at Daytona International Speedway on Monday, July 3, at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT.
 
“Pro flat track is the one of the world’s most intense forms of motorcycle racing, but the incredible racing is just the tip of the iceberg,” said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. “The story of American Flat Track is rich with history and the sport has personalities that are true American heroes. Over the coming weeks, we look forward to introducing a new generation of fans to America’s original extreme sport.”
 
An all-star broadcast team will call the races for the series in 2017. Play-by-play announcer Jason Weigandt is the resident expert for motorcycle racing at NBC Sports and brings a depth of knowledge and personality to the shows. Joining Weigandt in the booth is veteran Superbike racer and multi-time American Flat Track race winner Larry Pegram. Rounding out the team is Heather DeBeaux, who enters her second season as pit reporter for American Flat Track. No stranger to dirt track racing, DeBeaux has also covered the NASCAR K&N Pro Series for NBC Sports.
 
In addition to the 18 primetime premieres, NBCSN will present weekday encore telecasts of each one-hour show.  FansChoice.tv, a cornerstone of American Flat Track’s digital strategy, will continue provide live streaming coverage for every round of the 2017 season, and NBC Sports.com and the NBC Sports app will provide streaming coverage alongside NBCSN’s premiere telecasts.
