CRANDON - Many of the drivers call it the Daytona 500 or Indy 500 of off-road racing. And the way they attack the course at Crandon, shows how bad they want to win there.

The Brush Run races gave thousands of people another full day of fun at the track.

We had several local drivers with standout performances. For the 1600 Buggy, it was a fight to the finish for Rhinelander's Mark Steinhardt and Steiny came across in second place. In the Pro Buggy, Sugar Camp's Scott Schwalbe had a nice day finishing third.

And in the Pro Light Trucks, Crandon native Keegan Kincaid had a dominating weekend, thrilling the crowd and taking the checkered flag for the second day in a row.

Johnny Greaves of Abrams, WI won the 20th Annual Community Cup challenge yesterday.

But this weekend gave local fans the chance to cheer on drivers from many different parts of the Northwoods.

For the guys competing, they love their hometown track.
