Nearly doubling in size every year, the Brush Run 101 continues to grow. The Wolfhead Sportsman’s Club could never begin to sponsor a race of this magnitude by itself. Having volunteers come from all over the country in addition to the locals, the 1972 race had over 125 volunteers working throughout the race course.
Co-race directors, Jim Conway and Gary Cyrus, gave the okay for the green flag to drop early Saturday morning. Of the 183 machines that took the starting line, only 61 would finish the race. The total purse was slightly over $5,000 with the prizes given by Air Tight Sealer of El Paso, Texas and four certificates worth $100 donated by the Jeep Distributor of Minnesota. Fred Holms of Crandon won the sportsmanship award.
