Progressive American Flat Track Introduces the Progressive Triple Crown
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Progressive American Flat Track announces the Progressive Triple Crown, a unique multi-race challenge that rewards mastery over the sport’s three oval disciplines.
In addition to the overall championship, this season, the Mission SuperTwins presented by S&S Cycle competitors will vie for the Progressive Triple Crown by competing to collect the most combined points at three designated events.
The Progressive Triple Crown will consist of the Progressive Laconia Short Track at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire on June 11, the Black Hills Half-Mile at Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, South Dakota on August 6, and the Mission Springfield Mile Doubleheader at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield, Illinois on September 3-4.
The premier class rider who scores the highest points tally across that combination of Short Track, Half-Mile, and Miles will collect a $25,000 prize.
“As the leading motorcycle insurer in the country, we recognize the passion, dedication and commitment riders have to the sport, making this sponsorship a natural fit,” said Todd Matthews, Progressive Acquisition Specialist. “We are excited to not only see this sport continue to grow, but also to see who comes out on top to take home this award.”
The Progressive Triple Crown is the most high-profile new element of the broader partnership with series title sponsor Progressive Insurance®, but not the only one. The 2022 season also sees the introduction of the Progressive Marketplace, a new vendor area that includes a Progressive American Flat Track branded semi-trailer truck that transports various partner displays across the nation from round to round.
“We’re thrilled that Progressive has further expanded their support of the series in 2022 as they continue to play an integral role in helping us grow the sport,” said Gene Crouch, COO of AMA Pro Racing. “The Progressive Triple Crown adds a new twist to the season that will both reward our athletes and add an extra dimension of drama and excitement for our fans.”
