DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 9, 2020) – American Flat Track announced today a record total for its 2020 American Flat Track Contingency Program. With the season nearing, riders in all three classes of AFT are eligible for a total of over $3,100,000 in contingency offerings.
The American Flat Track Contingency Awards Program is designed to reward riders based on race results and the final championship standings, with participating brands offering cash awards.

$1,685,700 for AFT SuperTwins presented by Vance & Hines

I want to thank all the participating brands for putting money into the hands of American Flat Track racers.”
