BEAVERTON, Ore. — Davis Fisher will have a new title sponsor for his No. 67 Indian FTR750 during this season’s Progressive American Flat Track Mission SuperTwins class.

Beaverton Motor Cycle Racing has signed on to be the primary partner as Fisher contests the 17-round Mission SuperTwins championship.

Bob Lanphere’s Beaverton Motorcycles opened in 1964, and BMC Racing has supported Fisher’s racing for 14 years. The Lanphere Auto Group owns a number of car and motorcycle dealerships throughout the Pacific Northwest.  BriggsAuto.com backed Fisher’s AFT SuperTwins program in 2020.

“When I received a phone call from Briggs Auto saying they were going to sit out this year,  I wasn’t sure if I would be able to put something together in time for the first round of the series, the March 12 Volusia Half-Mile at Volusia Speedway Park,” said Fisher.  “I am grateful that BMC Racing has stepped up its support. Bob’s dad owned the shop before Bob Jr. took it over. He has been involved in racing for many years. At one point, he supported 2000 AMA Grand National Champion Joe Kopp, as well as my dad, Rex.”

Fisher has high expectations since the Indian brand and the FTR750 model has captured the last four AFT crown. Fisher finished the 2020 AFT SuperTwins season eighth overall in the championship points standings, with seven top-10 placings. His best finishes were a pair of fifths at Illnois’ Springfield Mile on Sept. 5-6.

The 2021 Progressive AFT season kicks off with a Volusia (Fla.) Half-Mile doubleheader event at Volusia Speedway Park on March 12-13.
