Crandon International Raceway To Open 2020 Season Camping and Grandstand Reservations New Year’s Day
— Online Reservations Begin at 12:00pm (CST) January 1st —
CRANDON, Wisconsin (December 31, 2019) – With two huge off-road race events coming to Wisconsin’s scenic Northwoods in 2020, tomorrow Crandon International Raceway is set to ring in the New Year in style with the opening of season camping and event reservations. On Wednesday, January 1st at precisely noon Central Standard Time (CST) the Crandon faithful can begin their preparations for two massive weekends — the 27th Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run scheduled for June 22nd – 24th, 2020 and the 51st Crandon World Championship Off-Road Races® held over Labor Day weekend September 3rd – 6th, 2020.
Fans can stake their claim both weekends by logging on to Crandon’s updated reservation system found at www.crandonoffroad.com. As is Crandon tradition, 2020 camping and grandstand season passes (for both weekends only) open at noon on January 1st, 2020, with individual event sales reservations available online beginning on February 1st, 2020 at noon Central Standard Time (CST).
In 2019, all 2,500-plus camping sites and 2,200 seats in the Vision Wheel Hospitality Complex were reserved a month before last year’s record-breaking 50th Crandon World Championship Off-Road Race weekend® even began, while a weekend attendance record was set for June’s Brush Run weekend as well.
Despite a steadily increasing demand for sites and seating in recent years, not to mention higher overall operating costs, Crandon’s management team has worked hard to maintain its ability to offer fans a world-class motorsports and lifestyle experience at affordable, family-friendly pricing. The 2020 camping packages offer a limited number of electric camp sites at just $190.00 for both race weekends (up to nine total nights), with non-electric camp site reservations costing just $110.00. Both 2020 packages include two weekend wristband passes for each event at an additional cost of $170.00. Reserved grandstand seats for 2020 can be purchased for all race days from $25 to $45.00 each.
Unlike nearly every other location in off-road racing, Crandon International Raceway is a permanent facility found on 400-plus acres of woodlands in Northern Wisconsin. The former farm includes rich green grass that frames the track’s challenging 1.75-mile undulating dirt circuit. Many of the Crandon faithful have made this annual pilgrimage an annual family tradition with camping, fireworks and tons of bratwurst creating an unforgettable weekend better known as “the Crandon Experience.”
With roots that stretch back to its inaugural running in 1970, Crandon’s Forest County Potawatomi “Brush Run 101” will mark the inaugural race for the newly created Championship Off-Road Series. The event will welcome summer and celebrate Father’s Day weekend in the American heartland with the sounds of high-horsepower unlimited Pro 2 and Pro 4 trucks. The Brush Run will also feature the highly competitive Pro Lite trucks and Pro UTVs, as well as a jam-packed schedule filled with all of the MORR Sportsman categories and several live concerts – all concluding with Sunday’s intense Forest County Potawatomi Community Cup race.
On Labor Day weekend Crandon will celebrate its hosting of the 51st Crandon World Championship Off-Road Races®, which in 2020 will also mark the season finale for the new Championship Off-Road Series. Last year, a record-shattering crowd of over 70,000 fans packed the “Big House” for the world’s largest short-course off-road event.
For the fifth consecutive year, in 2020 the Crandon World Championship weekend will again feature the sport’s most important race – the annual Red Bull Crandon World Cup. Hosted and sanctioned by Crandon International Raceway on Sunday, September 6th, the special day now attracts the world’s best off-road racers and teams to compete for Crandon World Championships® in a variety of Pro-level classes. Thanks to an ongoing partnership between Crandon and Red Bull, short course competitors from all sanctioning bodies around the country can race on a completely level playing field with the biggest single day payout in the sport.
“While most of us looking forward to welcoming the New Year, Crandon is also excited about offering our fans their chance to make plans an exciting season of racing here at the track,” shared Crandon President Cliff Flannery. “After last Labor Day weekend’s huge World Championships weekend, we are working to add more camping sites to our location for 2020, as well as additional entertainment for both our Brush Run and Labor Day weekends. Everyone better buckle-up for another great ride in 2020!”
