CRANDON, Wis., (March, 2013) – Officials at Crandon International Off-Road Raceway are pleased to announce an action-packed 2013 summer schedule for the legendary Wisconsin northwoods motorsports destination, featuring two Traxxas TORC Series presented by Amsoil professional short course off-road racing events, Wisconsin’s first Super Truck Challenge competition and another first for Crandon – a military-style adventure foot race known as the “BADASS DASH™.”
Beginning June 29th and 30th the TORC Series PRO trucks – headlined by Wisconsin great Johnny Greaves and defending TORC champ Ricky Johnson – open the 2013 summer motorsports competition schedule at Crandon with the annual running of the Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run and featuring the 20th annual FCP Chairman’s Cup PRO 2 vs. PRO 4 Challenge. High-flying, dirt-churning 900 horsepower Baja style off-road racers all vying for the top spots in the first of two major off-road races at Crandon with national point implications.
More off-road is in store for the Crandon faithful on 4th of July Weekend for as the inaugural Mole Lake Casino Super Truck Challenge at Crandon is set for July 4th, 5th & 6th – three days of off-the-hook 4x4 fun that’s open to anyone who’s interested in coming out to watch – or actually participate themselves! Featuring everything for the fans at Crandon from; an Obstacle Course step up for Rockers, Mega Trucks Bounty Hole, Show-n-Shine event, Sand and Rock Pit, Side-by-Side high H.P. Blower and Injected Mud Drag Racing, Burn Out, Mud Pit, Tuff Truck stadium style racing with a lucky dog draw elimination buy-back in and the Tug-O-War Throttle King Challenge® qualifier. The real fun comes into play when the “Pay to Play” entrants can also attempt the obstacle course, sand dunes, mud hole, rock wall, trail ride and a bounty hole!
A bit of a departure for Crandon the weekend of Aug. 17th as the dirt-stormin’ off-road trucks will be replaced by hundreds of adventure-seeking fitness enthusiasts as the Big House gets set to host its first ever military-style obstacle course race known as the “BADASS DASH™.” A virtual paradise created on the Crandon grounds for adrenaline junkies, BADASS DASH races consist of a 5-7K course that will boast unconventional - but achievable - obstacles that are truly BADASS. And although each race will have a minimum of 15-20 obstacles, not every race will have the same obstacles and you won’t know every obstacle that is on the course as the element of surprise is BADASS itself!
Winding up Crandon’s incredible summer of action-packed events will be the Aug. 30/31 to Sept. 1 race that got ‘er all going here – the 44th running of the Crandon International Off-Road Raceway World Championships, featuring the 4th annual AMSOIL Cup PRO 2 vs. PRO 4 Challenge. This is the biggie … the biggest race of its kind in the world, the premier race on the 2013 Traxxas TORC Series schedule. The biggest crowd, the highest speeds and the most airtime … Crandon’s World Championships has it all in terms of the spectacle for short course Baja style off-road racing.
