On The Box Racing Signs Brandon Price For 2024 American Flat Track Season

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – On The Box Racing (OTBR) is proud to announce the signing of Mission SuperTwins rider Brandon Price (BP92) for the 2024 Progressive American Flat Track season. The newly formed team will provide a fresh stable of Yamaha MT-07s for Price to showcase his talents over the entire Progressive AFT schedule. 

Fans can watch Price and the rest of the American Flat Track stars compete all season long live on FloRacing. 

Based out of Baltimore, Maryland, OTBR is backed by a diverse ownership group consisting of Team Manager Wayne Sody, Rider Coach Eric Rausch, and Technical Director Scott Saunders. A chance encounter between Saunders and Price at the local Graul’s Market’s Mission Foods shelf provided the team with its initial spark. Subsequent conversations involving Saunders, Sody, and Rausch resulted in the trio – each of whom had individually provided rider sponsorship over the past decade – realizing that by joining forces, they could build a first-class effort around Price’s talents. 

Widely recognized as one of the nation’s brightest stars as an amateur and during his climb up the professional ranks, Price stepped up to the premier class in 2019 and was promptly named Progressive American Flat Track Rookie of the Year. Since graduating to the pinnacle of the sport, Price has earned three Main Event runner-up finishes, and OTBR is committed to providing him with the equipment and technical support needed to capture his maiden Mission SuperTwins victory. 

Fellow Marylander Brian Eckhart will maintain the equipment and provide trackside support. 

Brandon Price #92: 

“This is the first time I’ve been with a team that is based out of my home state of Maryland, so that is pretty awesome! Even better, I’ve known everyone on the team for many years. That familiarity will go a long way toward getting things figured out quickly. My racing career path might be different from everyone else’s, but my eyes are still set on the prize. Bring it on, 2024!” 

Wayne Sody – Owner/Team Manager: 

“My motorcycle passion began with motocross where I eventually turned pro in 1979. Over the last 20 years, I began to engage more in dirt track through leading roles in the Baltimore County Trail Riders Association.  The excitement of the sport captured my interest to where I became a strong supporter of Dan Bromley in recent years. That experience led me to truly appreciate the riders in Progressive AFT racing for their skill and professionalism. Now we are beginning the most exciting step of creating our own team. We will be providing the best Yamaha-based equipment possible for Brandon to get back to winning form where he belongs! I’m excited to give back to the sport and look forward to the day when we achieve our first podium for On The Box Racing.” 

Eric Rausch – Owner/Rider Coach: 

“I’m extremely happy to have the opportunity to work with a rider as talented as Brandon. I am also doing my part to ensure he has the equipment needed to get out front.  We will definitely have fun this year!” 

Scott Saunders – Owner/Technical Director: 

 “That coincidental meeting with Brandon at the grocery store caught my attention because it was obvious he still had the competitive fire in his eyes to be racing full-time. His handshake alone told me he was confident he could be a winner. A call to Wayne and Eric quickly translated into the formation of OTBR, and shortly thereafter Brandon was signed for the season. 

“Everyone on the team is passionate about racing in Progressive American Flat Track. With our strong sponsorship package and an experienced technical team contributing to the engines and chassis, I am very excited to put in the work needed to ensure our team improves consistently throughout the season. I have no doubt we will deliver a few exciting surprises for our sponsors and fans this year.”
