American Flat Track

AFT to trial multi-platform Production Twins support class at Springfield in May

American Flat Track will introduce the AFT Production Twins support class at this year’s Harley-Davidson Springfield Mile I and II events on May 26 and September 1, respectively.
At both events, the world’s fastest dirt track motorcycle racers will headline in the AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines class. The new class – AFT Production Twins – will provide eligible AFT Singles riders the opportunity to gain valuable experience aboard faster, more powerful twin-cylinder motorcycles.

For fans, the addition of AFT Production Twins will double the day’s racing action, adding excitement and drama to what’s already a top-shelf racing event at one of the most legendary venues in the country.
The class is designed around production-based twin-cylinder machines with a displacement between 649-850cc. Eligible machines include BMW, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha twin-cylinder street bike engines displacing 649cc to 850cc. Race-only engines from machines such as the Harley-Davidson XR750, Honda RS750 and Indian Scout FTR750 are not allowed in AFT Production Twins.
AFT Production Twins riders will vie for $5,000 in purse money at each of the Harley-Davidson Springfield Mile events.
The next AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines race, round two, is the Harley-Davidson Atlanta Short Track presented by Hellbender Harley-Davidson at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, Georgia, on Saturday, April 7, 2018.
