ABOUT CRANDON INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY:

Crandon’s purpose-built, 400-acre facility is the finest on earth and has long hosted the largest crowds in short-course off-road racing history. Featuring more than 2,200 grass camping sites, fans enjoy two big weekends of racing each year including June’s Brush Run event and Labor Day weekend’s Crandon International World Championship Off-Road Races.
