All Progressive American Flat Track Classes Slated for Springfield Mile Doubleheader on Labor Day Weekend
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (February 11, 2022) – Progressive American Flat Track is excited to announce that, for the first time in nearly a decade, Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by KICKER will compete alongside the Mission SuperTwins presented by S&S and Mission Production Twins presented by Vance & Hines classes at the “World’s Fastest Mile” when the series arrives at the Illinois State Fairgrounds for the Springfield Mile I & II on September 3-4.
The Springfield Mile represents the crown jewel of the annual Progressive AFT calendar. That distinction has been earned not just by its long history and packed grandstands, but also by the incredible nature of the racing it reliably produces. Many of the most memorable races in series history have taken place at the Springfield Mile since the historic race was first held in 1937 [GC1] , including strategic showdowns, come-from-behind shockers, and underdog upsets. The return of the Parts Unlimited AFT Singles class, which is renowned for its spectacular action, should only add to that record.
This year marks the start of a new era for another reason as well, as Kiesow Racing and the Illinois Motorcycle Dealers Association (IMDA) have passed the torch to Mees Promotions following four successful decades promoting the legendary race.
