2019 FOREST COUNTY POTAWATOMI BRUSH RUN IS SET TO RUMBLE CRANDON INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY

26th Annual Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run marks a $87,000 total purse payout.

 

CRANDON, WISC. (APRIL, 9, 2019): When the thunderous sound of 900hp engines plays over-and-over in the back of your mind all winter as a distant memory from the final race of 2018,  it leaves an aching feeling lingering in your soul to hear that roar once again through the Forest County Potawatomi Turn One at Crandon International Raceway.

There is only one cure, the 26th Annual Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run to be held June 15-16, 2019.

 

 

 

The continued support from the Forest County Potawatomi tribe has been a crucial element in both the past and future of Crandon International Raceway. With the FCP being the largest employer in the county, they have invested not only in sport of short-course off-road, but have also invested heavily in the local community as well as within the tribal community and have become a vital partner with Crandon International Raceway. In addition to the Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run, they also conduct the largest fair in the area hosted at CIR.

The free-fair runs the July 5-7 for a weekend full of games and rides and family fun for all.
