Fans of American Flat Track racing will want to check out the 2024 Progressive AFT schedule that has just been released. The series has developed a schedule that is sure to keep racers on their toes all season long and provide plenty of excitement for the fans.

Last season included a variety of tracks, from new ones to historic venues, as well as a good mix of Short Track, Half-Mile, Mile, and TT races. The races were all held during the riding season, from March to September, and several races took place at well-attended rallies, such as the double-header opener at Daytona Bike Week at the Black Hills Half-Mile during the Sturgis Rally. This scheduling allowed fans the opportunity to return to beloved tracks while also drawing in new fans at rallies and motorcycle events. The 2024 schedule follows a similar pattern.

The mix of disciplines also can create exciting swings in the championship standings, as we saw last year when Dallas Daniels started a strong season by winning most Short Tracks and getting podium finishes at every race only to be outpaced by Jared Mees later in the season by Mees winning on Miles and Half-Miles.

The 16-race 2024 season starts with the Daytona Short Track I & II during Daytona Bike Week. Read the press release below for the preliminary 2024 schedule, and check back at American Rider’s “Competition” page for all Progressive AFT news and race coverage.

Progressive AFT 2024 Schedule Released

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (October 26, 2023) – AMA Pro Racing announced today the preliminary schedule for the 2024 Progressive American Flat Track season. The 16-round slate features an ideal balance on multiple fronts, including in terms of style, legacy, novelty, geography, and pacing.

Last season, the series introduced a more compressed schedule with an evolving emphasis on each of the sport’s four disciplines, encouraging alternating runs of form and championship comebacks. The result was one of the most compelling and electric Grand National Championship title fights on record. The ’24 schedule builds on that blueprint while having a flavor all its own.

“The 2023 schedule brought Progressive AFT back to major metropolitan markets and motorcycle rallies, while also introducing new venues and event promoters that helped us bring the sport to first-time fans from coast to coast,” said Gene Crouch, CEO of AMA Pro Racing. “As we look forward to 2024, the next phase of our growth strategy for the sport is based on cultivating long-lasting relationships with promoter partners and securing multi-year agreements around successful events. In addition to bringing consistency to the annual calendar for the series, this approach will allow promoters to establish date equity in their events, cultivating growth and engagement in the fanbase year after year.”

The season will play out during prime motorcycle riding season, once again opening with a Daytona Bike Week doubleheader at Daytona International Speedway in early March and once again concluding in early September. The first half of the year provides little time to catch one’s breath with five all-action Short Tracks set to be waged over the first six races. The middle of the campaign then shifts into Half-Mile mode while a pair of late season TTs and Miles will factor heavily in determining the title fights.

The 2024 schedule not only pays homage to the championship’s storied legacy by featuring high-profile rounds at its most iconic venues, such as the Labor Day weekend doubleheader at the legendary Springfield Mile and the iconic 77th Peoria TT, but it also introduces fresh, first-time experiences with brand-new events, including the Silver Dollar Short Track in Chico, California.

Other highlights include the DuQuoin Mile, which cast its magic once again last season by delivering a race that saw four premier-class riders representing three different manufacturers battle to the checkered flag, as well as the return of the Texas Half-Mile at Texas Motor Speedway, which will take place alongside the Goodguys 14th LMC Truck Spring Lone Star Nationals Car Show.

Yet to be announced events include an all-new TT and the return to a fan-favorite Half-Mile for a spectacular 2024 season finale. Announcements about the TBA events and ticket sales will be issued in the coming weeks.

  1. I hoped that the flat track series would bring in more EAST COAST RACES I REMEMBER THE DAYS OF RACING AT THE SYRACUSE MILE AND THE HALF MILE IN DELAWARE and the excitement of THE HAGERSTOWN RACES I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED that they brought the races to the BRIDGEPORT TRACK

  2. Surprised (and sorry) there wasn’t a date for Cal Expo Sacramento Mile. Most race venues just can’t quite match the awestruck deep down excitement level produced by the professional riders, supreme machines, fine groove track, and the sound (oh! The Sound! Incredible and unforgettable!). The Sac Mile could be the best Fan Base Expander on the West Coast if reasonable biting of the bullet were incorporated by all involved so the promoting and advertising can happen at the level necessary to attract enough people that warrant Cal Expo to extend both ends of the bleachers to accommodate all the “new to be race fans”, as well as the long time loyal FT fans. I mean seriously, if in 3 years an additional running at that venue wasn’t necessitated so all fans could vie for entry to at least one of the races, I’d bet the loyal fans would cover any shortcomings and help boost future attendance so as not happening twice. Although TV can’t relay the experience so captivating as live at the Sac Mile, it can display aspects of the intensity, importance, search, and very edge of ability for finishing well at Cal Expo. It truly is soooo edge of your seat extreme racing that can be seen, felt, heard, and witnessed as un-fricken-believable real life racing right in front of your jaw dropped face only experienced by live, being there as part of the entire event! And ya know the even more amazing thing about such great racers at an excellent track with sooo many into-it fans? The effort level throughout the field, in every race, all heats/dashes/finals, and no matter where it hapens in any of the races, like the front, middle, or even the back of the pack and in-between, the racing and obvious intensity level is felt and understood by all watching, just how important overtaking the racer in front of you is, whether it’s for 1st, 5th, 11th, or 2nd to last, it IS the mission that develops within each of these Racer’s from a younger age and thousands of laps, and a devoted lifestyle and sacrifice for what they truly love, that creates the addiction for winning or at worst get by any in your way. No less than remarkable is the display of the need to try as witnessed by most fans, new to veteran that never ever gets old, or becomes “the same old”. I’ve been around flat track racing since 7 years old and the Grahm, Washington kidney bean track, as well as Castlerock (in On Any Sunday) in the original layout before burried by Mt. St. Helens ash in 1980 (which lasted 8+ years until re-opened) and later came back flopped, the new bleachers now facing the river, although same orientation to the track, was 1/8 mile reduced, and a jump added to make it a “TT” style track (good for a lot of reasons). More on all that later, plus tons on top of that, piled higher yet, if by chance I finish my book “She won’t Dance for Banana’s” (the crazy, bizarre, hilarious life and times, biography of a boy kept from racing anything, that may just be responsible for all the wonderful years allowed, which led to the “Remedy” that likely served as a savior for even more years that now come into view with a Do Not End sticker cuz things get better and more fun, and super interesting while inching closer to the hole, not acting my age, and loving the millions of miles of race tracks available for me to configure everytime I go riding on my favorite and way giant for me but who cares motorcylcle I’m sooo in love with, like the other’s in now and of the years blessed to me for racing my way, and with thanks to all those racers for generations of the intensity involved for their success and my happiness that is all linked by a clutch lever, toe tap or lift, and twisty right grip. Plus quite possibly the ensued handicap of forgetting and/or not wanting to turn around that was associated with dentists trips no no huh uh not even. That terrible visualization of an open garage door, going thru that threshold, and screaming while trying to get a leg on the same side as the other, and thinking you’d much rather go to the dentist than endure a I’m home aaawww dismount, but quickly grab an MC repair manual as a binky for needed rest until on the bike again and racing away from all dentists place of torture, and new track of the day…… Yay! On the way to Cal Expo to convince them how a deal with Progressive now, would become a deal to them, and all involved for a long time. And when I pitch the whole project to VIP’s, I know Elon will be there for us, again with amazing human progress. Even though he may not like his Bots getting trashed by these Pro’s, it’s the process to learning needed for neener neener, that won’t come but they don’t know they can’t match the intensity of these Pro’s due to restricted allowance for human understanding with regards to such insane importance for winning, etc. But sure would be fun to watch, eh???? Then, the bonus not seen suddenly appears and is the golden egg being handed to all; The ABFT racing league using electric razor motors and challenge to more speed! Intensely Important??? Time will tell, but the money is already there……….. the bots never really got ahold of that V-Twin power and exhaust echo only produced in one place in the Universe…… oh darn……)
    k. it’s started.
    Cheers to the Sac
