Brush Run Races Postponed To September In Crandon

Crandon International Off-Road Raceway Facebook

The Crandon International Raceway has rescheduled the June Brush Run weekend due to COVID-19 concerns.  In announcing the postponement yesterday, organizers said it was not an easy decision. They had been working for weeks with local and state officials on plans for the event.  Track and Championship Off-Road series officials announced the rescheduling of the event to September.

Organizers said the current pandemic has forced the postponement and cancellation of motorsports events around the world. They said while Wisconsin has lifted most of its state restrictions on reopening businesses of all types, a recent uptick in COVID-19 cases in Forest County has raised concerns within the tight-knit community of Crandon.  

"For the past several months, we have been working towards a safe and entertaining opener of the new Championship Off-Road series right here in Crandon” said Crandon International Raceway President Cliff Flannery. “But after speaking with local and state leaders, health officials and the local residents, we felt it is in the best interest of everyone to postpone the event until this fall.”
