CRANDON - Labor Day weekend for many folks in the Northwoods means fun, family, and friends. In Crandon, it also means truck racing.
The TORC or the Off-Road Championship series returns to Crandon.
Final preparations were made on the track and the trucks Thursday.
Around 20,000 fans over three days of racing are expected at Crandon Off-Road Raceway.
Action gets underway Friday.
Head-lining Friday's action, Robbie Gordon's Stadium Super Trucks series.
The circuit's debut in Crandon was last year. Five trucks raced then. This weekend, ten trucks will be burning rubber. Gordon, who has raced in NASCAR in the past, likes how Northwoods fans reacted to last year's showing.
"We had fun last year," Gordon explains. "I think running on the short track is good for the fans because it puts all of the action in front of them."
RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
