American Flat Track Welcomes Motorsports Veteran Joey Mancari as Chief Competition Officer

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (November 13, 2018) – American Flat Track, the fastest growing sport on two wheels, continues to strengthen its series staff in preparation for its highly-anticipated 2019 season. The most recent addition is Joey Mancari, a seasoned motorsports professional who AFT welcomes as Chief Competition Officer.

With over three decades of motorsports experience under his belt, Mancari most recently served as Vice President of Competition and Operations for Red Bull’s Global Rallycross series. Red Bull GRC held a multi-year agreement for live and tape-delayed telecasting with NBC, and Mancari’s knowledge and experience here will prove invaluable as AFT works towards its goal of providing live television coverage of its events for fans.

“Joey Mancari joins us during a period of growth and increased interest in the sport of American Flat Track,” said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. “His experience in the world of GRC, with its live TV broadcasts and fast-paced action, will be extremely useful as we take AFT to the next level.”

Prior to his stint at Red Bull GRC, Mancari held a variety of roles in NASCAR’s competition department, including Series Director of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series.

“I’m excited to join American Flat Track as it experiences growth and increased visibility in the motorsports scene,” Mancari said. “I see a lot of parallels between my experience in racing and series management and AFT’s two-wheel motorcycle sport, and I’m here to help launch AFT into bigger and better things moving forward.”

Chris Carr, AFT’s previous CCO, will transition to a new senior role within AMA Pro Racing as the organization gears up for the 2019 season.

Mancari will be based out of American Flat Track’s offices in Daytona Beach, Florida.
