    Yes that's TrackPass.
    I think they rebroadcast every race 2 weeks later on NBCsn. I've got that channel on Dish Network.

    I bought the Track Pass. Since AFT is the only professional "sport" I support, or watch on TV, I figure it's worth it.

    The singles will be fun to watch and maybe the Production Twin class.....aside from that it will be Indian VS Indian....since HD pulled out. Kind of lost it's luster to me....

    Total domination of my Team never gets old.....:cool:

    Correct me if I'm wrong but HD will still be in the field just without factory backing I thought.....

    Yamaha made a strong showing in both divisions.

    Indian punched the competition between the eyes and they're trying to get off the mat.
    Going back pre-2017 HD wasn't playing nice.
    The pendulum always swings.
    They've got work to do.

    What @4thunder said.....
    @IROQUOIS I hate being right (not really!!!!). To your point, "dominating" what? It's a field of Indians racing against each other....zzzz...zzzz...zzzz.

    I've met Mees a couple times and he seems like a real good kid, and I wish him all the success in the world.

    Unless we get another Factory stepping up to compete, this will be the last season of the Super Twins (Indian already reduced their team from 3 riders to 2). Personally, I'd love to see Honda get back involved, which would put even more pressure on HD to get their shit together. I thought Honda was signaling renewed interest by entering the singles class last year.

    I'll say it again....a 450CC single will solve a lot of market share gaps for Indian.

    It use to be the HD show. Nobody seemed concerned then. Indian showed up and sent them packing with their tails between their legs. HD's present finance's help that decision along.
    This a cyclical thing we're witnessing. When the present business model fails for HD they'll see the value of getting back in backing races/racers.
    HD still dominate's drag bike racing. Indian may crash that party to.
    If HD runs from every challenge that will be the end of the company.

    When the flat track series was HD VS HONDA it was some of the best racing ever...in my lifetime.

    Again, this series will be done if no one else steps up....anyway....I'll leave it at that. Cheers my friend!

    All's well.
    Honda returned to AFT in 2019 (I think it was) backing a Singles class bike. I'm willing to bet they're eyeing the SuperTwins. They know how to win in that class. The 80's and part of the 90's proves that.
    Kawasaki, Yamaha, Suzuki and KTM aren't slouches either. Harley Davidson To Be Determined...
    When this pandemic is hindsight and the economy is normalized Corporate backing will return when the coffers are more flush.
