Tickets Now on Sale for Progressive American Flat Track’s Return to Daytona International Speedway for ‘23 Bike Week Season Opener

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Progressive American Flat Track revives Daytona Bike Week tradition with the 2023 season opener returning to the Flat Track at Daytona International Speedway on Thursday, March 9 and Friday, March 10, 2023. The DAYTONA Short Track will feature two back-to-back nights of bar-banging racing under the lights at one of the most iconic racing arenas in the history of the sport.

Coming off the heels of last season’s spectacular five-way title fight, the 2023 Progressive American Flat Track season ranks among the most highly anticipated in recent memory. Reigning Mission SuperTwins presented by S&S Cycle champion Jared Mees will look to continue his historic run. But to do so, he’ll once again have to go through the most talented collection of motorcycle dirt track racers in the world – including the likes of Briar Bauman, Dallas Daniels, JD Beach, and Brandon Robinson.

This season’s DAYTONA Short Track I & II resumes a hallowed tradition that saw the high-profile event serve as the opening round of the Championship from 1989 through 2016, with doubleheaders becoming the norm in 2006.

Over the decades, the DAYTONA opener frequently saw the sport’s leading stars shine the brightest, with Hall of Famers Scott Parker, Chris Carr, Will Davis, and Kenny Coolbeth all earning wins in Daytona. However, the event is just as renowned for the unpredictable racing it has regularly produced. Several riders have scored upsets to secure their first-career premier-class victories there, including the aforementioned Bauman and Robinson. One rider yet to triumph at the venue, however, is Mees, who hopes to scratch off one of the few remaining unfilled achievements still left on his scorecard.

The atmosphere is guaranteed to be electric. A half-million motorcyclists are once again expected to descend on Daytona Beach for this year’s 82nd annual Daytona Bike Week, and the DAYTONA Short Track I & II is primed to be one of the world’s largest motorcycle event’s premier attractions.

A range of ticket options are available now, now starting at $25 each night, including Upper Rim Road – Standing Room Only, Reserved Grandstand, and Accessible Seating.

And for an additional $40 ($20 for kids under 12) per night, Paddock Access Upgrades provide all-day access to the pits where fans can scope out the world’s fastest dirt track motorcycles and get up close and personal with the stars of the sport.
