The Crandon International Off-Road Raceway is an off-road racing racetrack that has hosts the "World Championship Off-Road Races".

Contents

Location

The track is located 1-mile (1.6 km) west of Crandon, Wisconsin on U.S. Route 8.

Track layout

The track started out as a 1.75-mile (2.82 km) long off-road track. The track was shortened to 1.5 miles (2.4 km). In 2002, a shortcut through the track was installed to allow a 1.25-mile (2.01 km) long lap. This allowed spectators to see the entire track, and it is utilized for selected events.

Races are started with a "land rush" start. The vehicles are started side by side in a standing start.

BorgWarner World Championship Off-Road Races

The "World Championship Off-Road Races" were first held in a 101-mile (163 km) race on a 25 1/4 mile course in 1970.[1 ] The event takes place on Labor Day weekend. Numerous sanctioning bodies have sanctioned the event. It was sanctioned by SODA (series) until CORR took over the sanction until 2007. WSORR sanctioned in 2008, and after it folded, the Traxxas TORC Series sanctioned the 2009 event. The race pitted 2 wheel-drive (2WD) Trophy Trucks against 4x4 trucks until 2008, with the 2WD trucks starting a half lap ahead of the 4x4 trucks. Scott Taylor piloted the only 2WD truck to victory, with victories in 2002 and 2008.[1 ] After TORC began sanctioning, the entrants were restricted to Pro 4x4 class trucks.

In some years of the 1970s, the prize money was split between all finishers or all division winners, on those years the driver with the fastest time is listed.[2 ] Winners of the BorgWarner World Championship:
