Exciting Off-Road Action Fills Crandon International Off-Road Raceway on Day 1

After the events in downtown Crandon, the vehicles and racers made their way to Crandon International Raceway, where the night was filled with firsts for the track on top of some great practice from the PROs for Saturday and Sundays main event racing!

The inaugural B & L SAND TOYS Sportsman Trophy Race featured thirty drivers from four TORC Series Sportsman classes. The top competitors in Sport 4, Super Truck, Formula 4×4, and Super Stock Truck competed for over $9,000 in cash and prizes. The event had $6,000 in prize money at stake. In addition to the cash prize, BDS Suspension, TeamTech Motorsports, and R2C Performance posted over $3,000 in contingency awards as well.

The popular Trophy Kart movement from the west coast made its inaugural stop at Crandon International Off-Road Raceway. Sought as a way to develop skills and transition younger kids to the Pro Buggy or Pro Lite divisions, the Trophy Kart race put on a show for The Big House and showcased possibly the next generation of short course racers.

Also joining the Traxxas TORC Series presented by Amsoil for the Labor Day madness is Robby Gordon and his Stadium Super Trucks. Crandon first got its glimpse of SST in 2012, when Robby brought his fleet of stadium style super trucks to the dirt for an exhibition race at The Big House. This year, SST headlined the opening events Round 9 of the series. In his first of seven green flags on the weekend, Rob MacCachren won the race, with Robby Gordon and Jacob Brooks filling the last two spots on the podium. Round 10 will take place on Sunday, just prior the main event of the weekend, the coveted Amsoil Cup Race, which combines the entire field of Pro 4 and Pro 2 against each other in a battle for forty grand and the Cup.

On top of all that, drivers of all pro divisions got to storm the track and get some practice laps in on the infamous track, in preparation for the main events of the weekend all day tomorrow and Sunday.
