DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (February 19, 2024) - Raggio Racing is excited to announce that Tyler Raggio will compete for the Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by KICKER championship aboard an ATVs & More KTM 450 SX-F backed by Sluggo Racing and UnSettled Racing for the 2024 Progressive American Flat Track season. 

A racer since the age of six, Raggio is entering his fifth season as a professional having already logged two dozen points-paying finishes to his name. The Lockeford, California, native has set his sights on achieving the best Progressive AFT campaign of his young career in ‘24, which will also be his first aboard a KTM. 

Raggio will continue his long-time association with Michael and Anna Dobbs of Sluggo Racing, which dates back to his amateur career, while also joining forces with UnSettled Racing and ATVs and More for the upcoming campaign. 

Tyler Raggio (#55):  

“I’m looking forward to hitting the track with my team and seeing what the year has in store for us. I’ve already had the opportunity to get some seat time on my new KTMs, and I’m already feeling very comfortable with them. With the support of Sluggo Racing, Unsettled Racing team, ATVs & More and many others we are poised for great success in the upcoming season. 

“I’m thrilled that Sluggo Racing is back on board for a tenth consecutive year. Their support has been a vital part of my journey as a racer. And I’ve had the privilege of working with UnSettled Racing as team manager, mentor, and mechanic for the past three years, and it’s an honor to have them back my effort as well.” 

Shawn and Clarissa Raggio, Team Owners of Raggio Racing: 

“We couldn't be more thrilled for Tyler to have another year to showcase his skills and prove to himself that he can be a front-runner. Over the years, he’s consistently demonstrated his speed and determination, and we are confident that he will continue to do so. Even though this will be Tyler’s first year competing on the KTM, we can see the excitement in his eyes as he gears up to take on this new challenge, and we know that he has what it takes to succeed.” 

Micheal and Anna Dobbs, Owners of Sluggo Racing: 

“Tyler is an accomplished racer and an exceptional individual who shares our passion for the sport. Our partnership with the Raggio family has been long-standing, spanning over two decades with a decade-long sponsorship. We take pride in supporting talented racers like Tyler and in nurturing their skills and talents. We also value the camaraderie and sense of community that racing fosters, and we are grateful for the opportunity to be part of this vibrant and dynamic industry.” 

Greg Settle, Owner of UnSettled Racing: 

“I'm honored to have Tyler Raggio piloting our ATVs and More KTM 450 in 2024. Tyler is an exceptional individual and one of the most outstanding kids in the paddock. Although he was raised in California, (I don't hold it against him), I now consider him one of the Fast Boys From Illinois group riding out of Effingham. 

“Tyler is an incredibly dedicated and hard-working young man who spends a lot of his time helping several youth riders develop their skills and grow the sport. We have high expectations for him in 2024, and we are confident that he will continue to demonstrate the same level of commitment and excellence that he has shown in the past.”
