Crandon Set For 31st Brush Run

CRANDON, Wis. — For the off-road racing community of teams and loyal fans, if it feels like summer, it must be time for legendary Crandon Int’l Raceway to come alive. 

After posting the most successful season in a storied 55 year-history last year, Crandon In’l Raceway is preparing to host the first major weekend of two this year with June’s 31st Forest County Potawatomi Crandon Brush Run races.

Named Facility of the Year at the 2022 Performance Racing Industry show, Crandon will open the gates to its 400-acre facility June 21-23, for three days of action-packed practice, qualifying and racing as part of the 2024 AMSOIL Champ Off-Road Series. 

Last year’s FCP Crandon Brush Run attracted the largest crowd in event history, and track officials expect to host even more spectators, campers and race teams in 2024.

Part of the seven race 2024 Champ Off-Road series, the Crandon Brush Run is expected to host more than 250 racers competing in 36 rounds of competition for all Pro and Sportsman categories.

“The family of staff and volunteers at Crandon look forward to opening the gates in four weeks to our extended family of racers and fans,” explained Crandon President Cliff Flannery. “Every year at the Brush Run is a celebration of speed, fun and the beginning of summer in Wisconsin. Thanks to the support of everyone — especially our partners at Forest County Potawatomi and the Potawatomi Casino Hotel — we can continue to raise the bar and share our good fortune with guests and racers alike.”

A combination of the track’s prestige and the largest season cash purse in Crandon history will provide race fans with a highly competitive field in all truck, buggy and UTV classes, including the spectacular Pro 4, Pro 2, Pro Lite and Pro Spec category trucks.
Pro and Sportsman racers will be competing for a Crandon Brush Run weekend record cash purse of $95,000, including $30,000 for the weekend’s big Forest County Potawatomi Community Cup finale. Now in its 31st year, this prestigious tradition is an all-out brawl that pits Pro 2 and Pro 4 racers on the track at the same time with a staggered start.
