CRANDON, Wisconsin (March 8, 2024) — For 55 years, Crandon International Raceway has been a powerful force in keeping off-road motorsports alive and well for racers and fans alike. Today the iconic Wisconsin facility’s ownership group announced that it will celebrate more than five decades of racing excellence with a record season purse of more than $300,000.

The massive season payout is a joint effort coordinated with the AMSOIL Champ Off-Road series and encompasses the 31st annual Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run (June 21-23, 2024) and Labor Day weekend’s 55th Polaris Crandon World Championships plus the 9th annual Red Bull Crandon World Cup Sunday (August 28 – September 1). The Crandon cash and prize purse will be shared by all of Champ Off-Road’s Pro and Sportsman categories.

In addition, Crandon is working to create additional purse payouts for the Ultra4 and Class 11 categories at the Polaris Crandon World Championships. The record 2024 Crandon purse is in addition to all race and season payouts awarded by the Champ Off-Road and other series competing at Crandon.

Named America’s “Facility of the Year” at the 2022 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show the raceway hosted more than 85,500 fans at its standout events, including a KISS “End of the Road” tour concert during the 54th Polaris Crandon World Championship Off-Road Race® weekend. In 2023, event attendance records were set at both the World Championships (68,494) and overall season attendance (85,523). 

As is Crandon tradition, the race season kicked off earlier this week as race enthusiasts began securing their Camp Crandon campsite and Grandstand seat reservations for the 2024 Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run (June 21 – 23).  

Fans with Brush Run camp reservations will then get exclusive access to reserve Camp Crandon sites and grandstands seats for the Polaris Crandon World Championships/Red Bull Cup (August 29 – September 1) from Monday, March 18 at 12:00 noon (CST) through Sunday, March 24.

On Monday, March 25 at 12:00 noon (CST) reservations for the World Championship weekend will be open to all. Last year, reservations for Camp Crandon on Labor Day weekend were sold out six months in advance — also a new Crandon record. 

Teams can purchase racer camping for either or both Crandon race weekends beginning on Monday, April 1 at 12:00 noon (CST). 

All 2024 camping, grandstand, and weekend passes will be available online by visiting 

Here’s what fans can anticipate from an action-packed 2024 season:

31st Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run: The season kicks off with the 31st Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run races from June 21 to June 23. Fans can anticipate thrilling practice sessions, qualifying rounds, and two full rounds of racing across Champ Off-Road Pro and Sportsman categories. 

55th Polaris Crandon World Championships: In late August, the iconic Polaris Crandon World Championships, now in its 55th edition, returns for a four-day spectacle from August 29 to September 1. Boasting more than 2,300 designated sites, Camp Crandon is projected to reach full capacity early, providing fans with an immersive experience featuring on-track competitions, concerts, and camping.

Red Bull Crandon World Cup: On September 1, the 9th Red Bull Crandon World Cup Sunday takes center stage, featuring top Pro drivers vying for prestigious Crandon World Championship titles in the sport’s top classes. The weekend culminates in the highly anticipated Red Bull Cup race finale, won last year by the Lucas Oil-backed Ford Pro-2 unlimited truck of Keegan Kincaid. 

Crandon Class 11 World Championships: Vintage Volkswagen Beetle enthusiasts will rejoice as the Crandon Class 11 World Championships return for the fourth consecutive year in 2024. Now a highly popular part of the Polaris Crandon World Championship weekend, the Class 11 category promises a nostalgic spectacle.

Last year, more than 425 race teams from nearly every state, Mexico, and Canada participated in the Polaris Crandon World Championships. This included a wide variety of truck, buggy, side-by-side, and four-wheel drive vehicles. Given the recent explosion in the off-road lifestyle by racers and fans alike, that Crandon record is likely to be eclipsed in 2024.
