CRANDON, Wisconsin (June 14, 2022) — Living up to a well-earned reputation as the “Big House,” Crandon International Raceway today released the official schedule for its upcoming 29th annual Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run race weekend — as well as additional prize money for Pro and Sportsman drivers.
Scheduled for June 24 – 26, the AMSOIL Championship Off-Road Series will be the centerpiece of the massive event schedule, with an expected field of more than 250 racers taking part in a Brush Run record of 57 on-track race activities. On Friday, June 24 the track will host 16 practice and six qualifying sessions for both Pro and Sportsman categories. An action-packed schedule of 17 races and a live evening concert will take place Saturday, June 25. The weekend will be capped with 18 total races on Sunday, June 26, including the exciting 29th annual Forest County Potawatomi Community Cup finale.

With six events on its 2022 schedule, the AMSOIL Championship Off-Road series kicked-off a few weeks ago in Antigo, Wisconsin.
The track today also announced it has posted a total of $28,000 in cash prizes for the Sunday’s exciting Forest County Potawatomi Community Cup finale, a Crandon tradition that pits unlimited Pro 2 versus Pro 4 trucks via a staggered start. Last year the Pro 2 of California’s Jerett Brooks took home the race’s top honors and a $10,000 cash prize.
Another Crandon tradition is its support of racers competing in the Sportsman classes. Comprised of enthusiastic weekend warriors in a wide variety of truck, buggy and UTV categories, AMSOIL Championship Off-Road competitors can look forward to additional $10,000 in prize money distributed to various classes for Saturday and Sunday’s rounds of Sportsman series racing.

“While Crandon supports the sport in a variety of ways we also understand without the teams and drivers there would be no show for our fans to enjoy,” explained Crandon’s Cliff Flannery. “The health of both the Pro and Sportsman racers is one key to the long-term success of the series. Crandon can do its part in this way thanks to the Forest County Potawatomi community and all our corporate partners. With huge race fields and three days filled with competition this year’s Brush Run weekend has it all.”
