— Camp Crandon/Grandstand Reservations to Open April 4th —
CRANDON, Wisconsin (March 3, 2022) — Despite the ongoing cold of a Wisconsin Northwoods winter still in the air, Crandon International Raceway today took another step in preparation for what is expected to be another wildly popular 2022 race season.
Coming on the heels of a record-setting year in terms of fan attendance, racer participation and on-track competition, Crandon International Raceway today released is 2022 pricing for both June’s Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run and September’s Polaris Crandon World Championship Off-Road Races®/Red Bull Crandon World Cup. Despite the challenges of today’s inflationary economic environment, Crandon pricing for Camp Crandon, weekend and daily passes and discounts for military members and seniors remain the same as last season. For 2022, reserved seats for grandstand seating will be reduced for both events, while onsite parking will be just $10.00 per day.
In addition to the event pricing, Crandon International today also announced that weekend reservation dates for Camp Crandon and the Vision Wheel Hospitality Complex grandstands have been rescheduled. Fans can claim their favorite locations for both events beginning Monday, April 4th at 12:00pm noon (EST) via an online reservations found at www.crandonoffroad.com. Racer camping and pit reservations for both race weekends will open on Monday, April 18th at 12:00pm noon (EST).
“We apologize in advance for any inconvenience our delay in opening 2022 reservations may represent for the incredibly enthusiastic and loyal fans of The Big House,” explained Crandon President Cliff Flannery. “Our staff is working on several updates to our operation that are taking longer than expected. We felt it best to make sure everything is set-up properly before turning on the switch for 2022.”
Following a long-held Crandon tradition, the 2022 event schedule will kick-off with the 29th annual Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run races to be held on Friday, June 24th through Sunday, June 26th, with the golden gates of Camp Crandon opening for weekend camping at noon (CST) on Thursday, June 23rd. The popular weekend will feature practice and qualifying sessions, as well as two full rounds of racing for all Pro and Sportsman categories that make up the AMSOIL Champ Off-Road series. Race fans can expect large and competitive fields of truck, buggy and UTV classes, including the spectacular Pro 4, Pro 2 and Pro-Lite trucks.
The weekend concludes on Sunday afternoon with the prestigious Crandon Forest County Potawatomi Community Cup race, an all-out competition that pits Pro 2 and Pro 4 racers on the track at the same time with a time staggered start. Last year’s Community Cup champion was Pro 2 driver Jerret Brooks, who is expected to return to defend his title in 2022.
In the world of motorsports, Labor Day weekend is synonymous with just one thing — the annual Polaris Crandon World Championships. This year’s 53rd running of the sport’s biggest and best event weekend returns for a four-day weekend of racing, concerts, camping and more from Thursday, September 1st through Sunday, September 4th. Crandon’s massive Camp Crandon comprised of 2,300 sites is expected to be sold-out again in 2022, with gates opening to the racers and public at 12:00 noon (CST) on Wednesday, August 31st.
A record event crowd of more than 55,000 people enjoyed more than 400 teams from across America competing in record 42 races spread over three days and nights. The massive race weekend is the largest, oldest and most prestigious short-course off-road race in the world, and includes a complete schedule of Pro and Sportman AMSOIL Champ Off-Road series racers going all-out to win both season championships and Crandon World Champion title and rings for all classes.
For the second time in Crandon history all rock racing classes of the Ultra4 series made famous at the annual King of the Hammers event in California will be competing. Every Ultra4 category will compete twice over the three day World Championship schedule, including a block of night racing Saturday evening under the lights in the Crandon Off-Road Park as part of the second annual “Rigid Rage on the Rocks.”
Capping off the weekend on Sunday, September 4th will be the 7th annual Red Bull Crandon World Cup for Pro category racers, with the sport’s best Pro drivers earning coveted Crandon World Championship titles and the biggest prize of all — the annual Red Bull Cup Challenge finale. Crandon local favorite Keegan Kincaid took home the Red Bull Cup race with his Lucas Oil-backed Pro 2 truck.
