Progressive AFT has announced that its partnership with sponsor Mission Foods will continue for the 2024 season. This partnership has been in place since the 2021 season, and Mission will again serve as the title sponsor for the Mission SuperTwins class and the Mission #2Fast2Tasty Challenge.
With this critical sponsorship secured and the 2024 schedule released, Progressive AFT is ramping up for another thrilling season of exciting dirt action. The series kicks off with a double-header at Daytona Bike Week, March 7-8, for the first two of 16 races in 2024.
The 2023 season ended with Indian Motorcycle’s Jared Mees claiming the title for the third year in a row, equaling Scott Parker for most Grand National Championships of all time, after battling for the top spot against Estenson’s Dallas Daniels for most of the season. Daniels has once again signed on with Estenson for 2024, so expect the rivalry to continue.

Daytona Beach, FL (December 15, 2023) – Progressive American Flat Track, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, is pleased to announce a partnership renewal with Mission Foods to continue its wide-ranging support of the series for a fourth-consecutive season in 2024.
Included as key features of the multifaceted partnership agreement, Mission Foods will again serve as the title sponsor for the premier Mission SuperTwins class and the associated Mission #2Fast2Tasty Challenge, while remaining the Official Tortilla, Chip, and Salsa of Progressive AFT.
The nation’s top manufacturer of tortillas, tortilla chips, flatbreads, and other baked products, Mission Foods has been one of the most active and influential sponsors of Progressive American Flat Track since making its high-profile debut with the series in 2021. Its support has only expanded since, and it will again serve as the title sponsor for its home round, the Mission Texas Half-Mile at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas, on Saturday, April 27.
“We are proud to continue our partnership with American Flat Track as the title sponsor of the SuperTwins class and Mission #2Fast2Tasty Challenge for 2024,” said Juan Gonzalez, Mission Foods Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to keep connecting with fans on race weekends, and it further exemplifies our commitment to motorsports racing.”
Mission Foods has done much to raise the profile and awareness of Progressive AFT over the years of its partnership via in-store grocery displays across the nation featuring Mission-branded athletes. That practice will not only continue but increase with the addition of displays in stores on military bases in 2024. Mission will also maintain a large presence at the track with numerous fan-facing activations.
“Mission Foods is an exceptional partner, continually elevating the American Flat Track experience both on and off the track,” said Gene Crouch, Chief Executive Officer of AMA Pro Racing. “We’re truly grateful for their energy and enthusiasm in supporting our athletes and engaging with fans. We’re excited about this renewed collaboration and appreciate their continued efforts to bring the excitement of American Flat Track to a broader audience.”
