The 2022 Progressive American Flat Track season kicked off on March 10 and 11, 2022 at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida—and Royal Enfield is back for another season, ready to bring the thunder. Back in 2021, Royal Enfield, along with Johnny Lewis and the Moto Anatomy X team, chose to contest selected rounds of the AFT Production Twins championship. For 2022, though, they’re upping their game and are going for the whole season.
“With the progress made on the Twins FT, and with the dedicated team behind the Moto Anatomy X Powered by Royal Enfield program, we’re ready to go all in,” Royal Enfield Americas marketing and communications lead Breeann Poland said in a statement.
“We’ll continue to learn and progress as we go and we’re all looking forward to another great season,” she added.
So, how did Lewis, Moto Anatomy X, and Royal Enfield fare at the first Volusia round in 2022? Things started out looking like a podium might be possible, but unfortunately for the team, it just wasn’t in the cards. Still, Lewis fought hard to gain a fifth-place finish, which is still not a bad way to kick off the season. Next up is the Texas Half-Mile at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth on March 19, 2022—and Lewis and the team will be there and ready to slide.
