After the record-breaking viewership of the 2022 Progressive AFT season, fans have been waiting with bated breath to find out how they can catch the action for 2023.
The 2023 schedule is now out, with 18 races including five Miles, five Half-Miles, four Short Tracks, and four TTs. The races will be even easier to catch this year, as many race days are being incorporated with existing rallies and will take place on holiday weekends, including the Arizona Super TT, which will coincide with Arizona Bike Week.
In the 2022 season, Jared Mees held on to his title from 2021, finishing with a 22-point lead over Briar Bauman in 2nd and a 31-point lead over Dallas Daniels in 3rd. We’ll be watching closely to see if Mees can hang on to the title for a third year or if another racer is ready to pull ahead. Check back for race news and results as the season unfolds.

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida (January 9, 2023) – AMA Pro Racing has confirmed its finalized 18-round schedule for the upcoming 2023 Progressive American Flat Track season.
The previously announced provisional schedule laid out an ideally balanced slate in terms of discipline, geography, and pacing. Other key features were visits to venues both historic and new, the alignment of the calendar with multiple high-profile rallies and holiday weekends, and a more compact timeframe that fits all 18 rounds in during motorcycle riding season. The final schedule features five Miles, five Half-Miles, four Short Tracks, and four TTs.
The final schedule further solidifies that intent with the confirmation of the return of the Arizona Super TT and the West Virginia Half-Mile.
The Arizona Super TT returns following its 2019 debut, joining the entertainment options planned during the weekend of the 29th annual Arizona Bike Week on April 1. The 2019 event marked the first Mission SuperTwins presented by S&S Cycle Main Event win of JD Beach’s career – one that kicked off a run that has seen him score six of seven TTs wins in the years since.
On July 1, Progressive AFT will compete in the state of West Virginia for the first time since 2006 with the West Virginia Half-Mile. The event will take place at the scenic West Virginia Motor Speedway in Mineral Wells, West Virginia. This mountainside 5/8-mile track is both renowned for its high speed and beautiful settings, promising to serve as an incredible stage for the world’s greatest motorcycle dirt track racers next summer.
