CRANDON, Wis. (September, 2013) – Officials at Crandon International Off-Road Raceway would like to recognize a couple sponsors that went above and beyond the norm with generous cash prizes at the Labor Day Weekend World Championship®.
The Forest County Potawatomi Tribe and Randy Fenwick of Fun Company stepped up with cash prizes for the Trophy Kart and B&L Race (Potawatomi Tribe) and last place finishers at Saturday’s event (Fenwick).
“We definitely weren’t expecting this … but just goes to show the generosity of a couple sponsors at Crandon, going deep into their pockets to help out some racers that otherwise wouldn’t have much financial payback at the World Championship,” said Crandon’s Cliff Flannery. “Hat’s off to the Forest County Potawatomi Tribe and Fun Company’s Randy Fenwick. Crandon Raceway recognizes your involvement with the World Championship and we thank you for your generosity.”
Both parties ponied up thousands of dollars to the cause, with the Potawatomi’s cash purse going to the podium finishers of the Trophy Kart class and B&L Race, while Fenwick/Fun Company’s unique cash purse was given to the last place finishers on Saturday, with the winners of that money being drawn from a hat. Those racers included:
1st place ($1,000) Charlie Wilson Stock Truck
2nd Place ($750) Charles Holtz Formula 4x4
3rd Place ($250) Jimmy Weitzel Trophy Kart
Thanks again from everyone at Crandon Raceway to the generosity of the Forest County Potawatomi Tribe and Randy Fenwick at Fun Company!
With racers and trucks/buggies, crews and off-road fans converging from all points on the U.S. map, the small logging town of Crandon, Wisc., (population: 1,961), is awash in activity. And since 1970 the off-road phenomenon has played out in Crandon, making it the nation’s longest-running short course off-road competition.
