American Flat Track is pleased to confirm two events in the northeastern United States as part of the 2018 schedule. New for the series, the New York Short Track will be held in Upstate New York on July 14, and the wildly successful Williams Grove Half Mile will return to the schedule on September 8.

Jared Mees (9) leads the pack at this year’s Williams Grove Half Mile.

After putting on two thrilling events in the Syracuse market, America’s original extreme sport will return to the area for the third year in a row, but at an all-new venue for the series – Weedsport Speedway.

“We are excited to bring the high-intensity racing action that only American Flat Track can deliver to our fans in New York,” said Cameron Gray, COO of AFT Events, promoter of the New York Short Track and Williams Grove Half Mile. “Short-track racing has been described as ‘a fistfight in a phonebooth’ and there is no doubt that the racing action will be intense next year.”

The 2017 Williams Grove Half Mile was the first American Flat Track event held in Pennsylvania in nearly a decade, and the event proved to be a favorite for fans and riders alike. The 2018 rendition of the Williams Grove Half Mile will be held on September 8, the same weekend as in 2017. The revised event schedule for 2018 means the event will conclude one hour earlier than it did this season, giving motorsports fans ample time to make it to nearby Port Royal Speedway that evening and catch double the racing action.

“The Williams Grove Half Mile was one of the most exciting events of the season, and we’re proud to announce next year’s date,” Gray said. “We can’t wait to put on another night of fantastic racing in front of a sell-out crowd when we return to Williams Grove Speedway.”
