- Summertime means racing in the Northwoods, and one of the most anticipated events is coming up this weekend in Crandon.
Steve Barlow knows truck racing. The Pro 2 Racer is considered 'the godfather of modern off-road racing.'
He likes to describe the action coming to Crandon this weekend. "If you could ride the biggest roller coaster, the fastest roller coaster - and do it 100 times, that's what this race track is like."
Twice a year, the community of Crandon welcomes some of the top drivers in the country.
Keegan Kincaid is a Pro Lite Racer from Crandon. He adds, "this is the race that I look forward to the most throughout the season. It's coming to your home track. Your friends, your family, everyone that you know comes to this track."
This weekend, The Brush Run Races will feature 12 classes of sportsman and pros.
"Racing here is something that you dream about when you're a kid," adds Barlow. "And when you come here and get to do it for the first time, it's like no other race track you've ever been on."
The stands may be quiet now, but come this weekend, 20,000 fans will be on hand for the big event. The off road course provides high flying action for the whole family.
Action will be on Saturday and Sunday.
