By all accounts, the American Flat Track event that winds through the infamous Buffalo Chip campground in Sturgis has become one of the series’ most spectatable races – and they’re all pretty dang spectacular. All the races air a week or two later (or you can livestream them), so it’s a good thing AFT flies slightly below the radar for now. I don’t know who won the BCTT last week, and don’t tell me. No spoilers!

AFT Press Release:
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (August 10, 2018) – The world’s most wildly visceral and action-packed flat track motorcycle race – the Buffalo Chip TT presented by Indian Motorcycle – is about to explode onto the nation’s TV screens this weekend on NBCSN – and in Prime Time, 8:30 pm ET (5:30 pm PT).
The Buffalo Chip TT, which happens during the Chip resort’s unique celebration of music and motorcycle culture, is a race unlike any other. There’s the built-in-a-day racetrack with a massive jump snaking around the legendary amphitheater, with thousands of fans lining the circuit.
There’s also some of the most intense racing action anywhere, with a number of AFT Twins and AFT Singles competitors shaking things up in a big way. Let’s just say there were not one but two surprise winners that evening.
Featuring on-bike footage along with cameras that captured every tire-spinning corner exit, jump launch, crash and critical moment, the Buffalo Chip TT premiere on NBCSN Saturday evening promises to be as riveting as the Buffalo Chip TT race itself … as the 10,000-plus screaming fans in attendance will attest.
Don’t miss what’s arguably the most exciting racing of the 2018 American Flat Track season!
Tune in to all the action on NBCSN Saturday, August 11 at 8:30 pm ET (5:30 pm PT).
