Chris Carr named Chief Competition Officer of American Flat Track

David McGrath transitions to key role of Race Operations and Technical Director


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Nov. 15, 2016) – With an expanded 18-race calendar and a re-envisioning of the class structure and event format on the horizon in 2017, American Flat Track has named seven-time Grand National Champion Chris Carr as Chief Competition Officer (CCO) as the sport enters the dawning of a bright new era.

“We’re delighted to have Chris join the American Flat Track team,” said Michael Lock, CEO of AMA Pro Racing. “His deep knowledge of racing and his excellent relationships within the community will be very helpful as we continue to build momentum and grow the sport.”

Starting with the all-new DAYTONA TT on March 16, 2017, the freshly-rebranded American Flat Track will feature a clearly-defined class structure and modernized event format designed to entertain fans from coast-to-coast. With respect for the past and an eye on the future, Carr will leverage his passion and intimate knowledge to guide the sporting aspects of American Flat Track into the modern age.

“I am very excited about the direction American Flat Track is heading,” said Carr. “In this new role, I will draw on my 40 years of flat track experience to guide the sport in the interest of safe, fair and close competition as we usher in this new era.”

In continuation of his contribution to the new technical and procedural rules, David McGrath will transition to the key role of Race Operations and Technical Director in 2017. Rounding out the Competition Department’s management team, Steve Morehead and Becki Edmondson will continue in their roles of Director of Race Events and Director of Member Services, respectively.



$5,000 Pro purse, so we’re trying to spread the word to Pro riders who would like to make some money during the off-season.

There will be open practice on Friday night.  On Saturday, the amateur program gets underway just after noon and the Pro

 races get going around 6:00pm. Obviously, being and indoor, this is a “spectator friendly” rain-or-shine event,

 with great track-side seating, concessions, and clean restrooms with showers, etc.
