Indeed. Meshes with that pic Keegan posted a few weeks ago of studded tires (the old, racing-specific ones) on his truck. (Edit: And he just posted an instagram story or whatever, a video of a pan of the barn turn, with the snow graded down).Definitely got a little sneaky peak on the number plate
Good eye. I missed that one.Definitely got a little sneaky peak on the number plate
...And that's a Lucas Oil logo on the side. Well, well.
That Antigo paper article suggested that Lucas Oil might sponsor COR. But if it's just the track, that's still good. (And if this is a not-championship event they're plugging, that sounds like it's a track sponsorship?).Good eye. I missed that one.
I think Jamey and others have teased the idea enough on social media by now that it's kind of an "open secret".
It'll be a neat event to see, for sure. On its face, it sounds like an idea hatched late-night in a bar. "Hey man, you know what'd be awesome, if they raced trucks at Crandon in the snow!"
But then, if you know the story of the original Brush Run 101, that's how things get put in motion in Crandon...
Maybe a tease that Crandon has a new partner?
Side note, feels weird to not have my dad on the board at Crandon anymore... I used to know a lot of this stuff before "the public" did and now I'm left sorting through the rumors with everyone else
I mean, the "why not" is maybe fans don't really want to sit in the cold that much and studded tires and truck reconfiguration would be expensive. But the UTVs are already doing that stuff in the Greaves series and we have machines just sitting and a great coating of snow in the area. Maybe they're interested in tying something in with the Sno-Cross series? Who knows.
But I like racing in the snow when it is actual racing. I have to drive on this stuff for months, may as well watch guys go fast in it.
Got another confirmation, Jarret Brooks will be racing in the Midwest this season. Heard it in the Ryan Beat interview on the Dirt Life Show!!
Pro 2 is gonna be really good this year.
If the numbers come out like you and I have chatted about, we might look back on 2021 as the beginning of the newest "golden age" of truck racing in all the midwest truck classes...
I was told that Jarret Brooks dad along with Chris Polvoorde's are players in the new GAS series out here on the west coast so I would guess that both of them will be running the mid west series to promote GAS. Just because Lucas pulled out of running LOORS doesn't mean they aren't going to continue with their sponsorships of drivers and tracks...IMO
Lucas is definitely sponsoring something in the midwest, as their name was on that truck that Crandon leaked a photo of, so this is definitely true. Sponsoring is different from owning and operating a series, obviously.I was told that Jarret Brooks dad along with Chris Polvoorde's are players in the new GAS series out here on the west coast so I would guess that both of them will be running the mid west series to promote GAS.

The fact that the GAS and COR schedules are so far from overlapping, I feel each is making a conscious effort to make sure each series has the best chance for success.
