All told, winner with the most points across the Short Track, Half-Mile and Miles will be the lucky gal or gent to get their mitts on that hefty $25,000 prize – and Gene Crouch, the COO of AMA Pro Racing, is pretty stoked.

“We’re thrilled that Progressive has further expanded their support of the series in 2022 as they continue to play an integral role in helping us grow the sport,” he says.
