Tickets on Sale Now for Inaugural Silver Dollar Short Track
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (January 18, 2024) – Tickets are now on sale for the inaugural Silver Dollar Short Track, Round 5 of the 2024 Progressive American Flat Track season, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing.
The world’s elite dirt track motorcycle racers will make their first-ever appearance at the historic Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, California, on Saturday, May 4. The high-banked, 1/4-mile clay oval is no stranger to big names and big-time events, however. In fact, the six-decade old venue made such an impression on auto racing superstars Kyle Larson and Brad Sweet in their formative years, that the Northern California natives joined forces to become the track’s co-promoters in 2021. The duo, along with business partner Colby Copeland (together SLC Promotions), will also serve as co-promoters of the series’ maiden race alongside Progressive American Flat Track.
The Progressive AFT round is destined to stand tall alongside the track’s history with the Grand National Championship arriving in full swing. The stop at Silver Dollar Speedway will mark the fourth close-quarters Short Track showdown in the season’s opening five races, virtually guaranteeing an intense night of racing as Mission SuperTwins aces Jared Mees, Dallas Daniels, Briar Bauman, Davis Fisher, Brandon Robinson, and the remainder of the stacked premier-class field due battle in tight confines.
It’ll be a similar story – albeit with arguably even more potential winners – in the Parts Unlimited AFT Singles presented by KICKER class. Reigning champion Kody Kopp will look to repeat his early-season ST heroics of a year ago, but the likes of Tom Drane, Chase Saathoff, and Trent Lowe will do everything in their power to prevent three-peat on Kopp’s part.
There will be plenty to keep fans entertained off the track as well, including numerous vendors, a wide selection of food & beverage options, music via DJ, and designated motorcycle parking.
“SLC promotions is extremely excited to add AFT Motorcycles to our schedule,” said Brad Sweet, Partner at SLC Promotions. “It will be great to experience a completely new fan base and showcase Silver Dollar Speedway on such a huge stage.”
