Goodguys, Progressive American Flat Track and Pate Swap Meet join forces to deliver a jam-packed weekend of hot rodding and high-performance family fun!
The Goodguys 14th LMC Trucks Spring Lone Star Nationals presented by TREMEC takes place April 26-28, 2024 at the sprawling Texas Motor Speedway complex in Fort Worth, TX. The event 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, Saturday night hot rod track cruise, and now the thrilling racing action of Progressive AFT to top off the action-packed weekend!
The Progressive AFT Series is the world’s elite dirt track motorcycle series and one of the most historic and consistently exciting forms of racing in all of motorsports. With the competitors routinely separated by mere inches while running at excessive speeds and sliding through corners, the action delivers non-stop excitement for all spectators.
“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!”
“Progressive American Flat Track’s fans are among the most knowledgeable and enthusiastic in motorsports, and I have no doubt they will be thrilled with the chance to take in all the Goodguys 14th LMC Truck Spring Lone Star Nationals has to offer,” said Gene Crouch, CEO of AMA Pro Racing. “It’s also an outstanding opportunity for us to showcase the excitement and world-class competition of elite motorcycle dirt track racers before a new audience to further expand that fanbase.
