Super Truck Challenge in Crandon Fri and Sat
CRANDON - For the second straight weekend, Crandon Off Road Raceway is busy.

This weekend its the Super Truck Challenge.

Mud drag racing, Tug O-war and Burn out competitions are among the events going on tonight and tomorrow.

It's open to anyone with a good truck or jeep.

One other eye-catching event, an obstacle course for what's called Rockers.

Why rockers - well to get over these rocky hills, wooden steps, and other elements - you generally need to rock.

Sometimes you get stuck, eventually you find a way to overcome the obstacle.

"It takes skill, you gotta be on your toes," Ryan Pribbernow of Spencer explains. "You gotta know where to pick the right line. It's a challenge. You're not going to take any vehicle, you're not going to take anybody and be like drive to the top."

"It's a challenge, you have to be one with the vehicle and take the right line and take it to the top. Great time, I love it."

Racing continues Saturday. Registration begins at 9am on Saturday. Racing starts at 10am.
