Center Hill, Florida: August 21, 2019 – Cobra Moto slides right into the newly formed AMA amateur flat track series Flat Track Futures with a contingency support program for the 2019 October Florida Fall Classic and November Winter Olympics events. With strong efforts towards growing flat track from the ground up, Flat Track Futures’ main goal from the beginning has been to start with the youth classes and work its way up to gain industry support for the riders and families invested into amateur flat track racing.
With support from Cobra Moto, Flat Track Futures announces its first OEM contingency program totaling $2400 for the 50cc and 65cc classes. Cobra Moto will provide a 2019 contingency program for the Florida Fall Classic single day race event in the 50cc 4-6, 50cc 7-8 and 65cc 7-11 classes – totaling $875 payout. The Winter Olympics 3-day event will feature an overall contingency program for 5 classes including the 50cc 4-6, 50cc 7-8, 50cc Pee Wee 4-8, 65 MOD and 65 DTX – totaling $1525 payout.
“This is exactly why I started Flat Track Futures, for years there hasn’t been any type of contingency programs from OEMs in the amateur ranks, and my goal was to change that. Teaming up with Cobra Moto for these first two events and already planning our 2020 program is a huge achievement for me personally. We are literally starting from the ground up with support towards our youth classes, and it’s exciting.”
– Johnny Lewis.
