AFT, Goodguys Rod & Custom Association Team For Texas Motorhead Weekend

DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. — This year’s Progressive American Flat Track Mission Texas Half-Mile will run in conjunction with the Goodguys 14th LMC Truck Spring Lone Star Nationals presented by TREMEC at Texas Motor Speedway.

The Mission Texas Half-Mile is scheduled for April 27, right in the middle of the 14th LMC Truck Spring Lone Star Nationals presented by TREMEC, which will be staged at the sprawling Texas Motor Speedway complex from April 26-28.

Progressive AFT’s annual stops in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex traditionally boasts a celebratory atmosphere due to its close proximity to a number of the sport’s teams and sponsors. The LMC Truck Spring Lone Star Nationals only serves to further raise that bar.

Goodguys Rod & Custom Association is the world’s largest hot-rodding association, and this year’s event at Texas is expected to bring over 2,500 classic vehicles to the infield along with an expanded autocross track, an all-new drift exhibition, the Nitro Thunderfest exhibition of vintage dragsters, the historic Pate Swap Meet, a free kids zone, live entertainment and a Saturday night hot rod track cruise.

“We’re extremely excited to stage a Progressive American Flat Track event in conjunction with the Goodguys 14th LMC Truck Spring Lone Star Nationals,” said Gene Crouch, CEO of AMA Pro Racing. “Their events are hugely popular and for good reason. They have so much to offer that it’s sure to be a weekend to remember for motorsports fans of all ages. It’s also a tremendous opportunity for us to showcase the excitement of our sport to a large contingent of potential new fans among the thousands of enthusiasts who flock to the Goodguys shows.”

“The opportunity to partner with such a historic and well-respected brand like American Flat Track brings another level of excitement and anticipation to an already epic weekend of hot rodding and high-performance fun,” said Goodguys Chief Operating Officer, Andrew Ebel. “We can’t wait to treat the people of north Texas to a huge weekend of pedal-to-the-metal entertainment featuring over 2,500 classic cars and trucks on display, the country’s largest swap meet, and now, the addition of high-adrenaline dirt track motorcycle racing action with the Progressive AFT Texas Half Mile. It’s going to be a jam-packed weekend of family fun you don’t want to miss!”
