Crandon is one of those special places. The sights, the sounds, the feeling of being just feet from a herd of 700+ hp short course trucks coming around the corner at the Big House. Now Crandon International Off-Road Raceway on Labor Day weekend when the World Championship Racing is in town, how could you pass up on an event like that. Well we couldn’t resist either so BDS loaded up for the weekend of racing and made our way north our of Michigan for Crandon, WI. The Big House, as its known, had a sold out crowd as the show came to town. The air was filled with high octane excitement as race fans came to cheer on their favorite drivers. The BDS booth stayed busy as many stopped by between heats to check out the products and see what specials we had going on. The BDS Dodge gets attention everywhere it goes and this weekend was no exception.
But now to the racing action; the weekend started off great with an awesome cup race sponsored by B&L Sand Toys and BDS Suspension. Congratulations to Charlie Wilson for winning the cup and taking home the trophy along with the $1500 in BDS gear. Following those races the Stadium Super Trucks from Robby Gordon’s camp took to the track putting on one heck of a show before the main other classes hit the dirt. Congrats to CJ Greaves (Amsoil Cup & Pro Light), Rob MacCachren (Pro 4×4), Jeff Kincaid (Pro 2WD), Brad Morris (Pro Buggy), Bob Gremler Jr (Super Truck), Danny Beauchamp (Super Stock Truck), Greg Stingle (1600 Light Buggy), Mark Steinhardt (1600 Buggy), Bradley Lamarche (Formula 4×4), Scott Mueller (Classix), Cory Marquardt (Stock Truck), Myles Cheek (Trophy Kart).

It was an awesome weekend of racing, despite the torrential down poor and some flooding in the pits Sunday, but the track crews worked feverishly to drain the water and prep the track for the racing to resume at noon. After the big cleanup racing resumed with all the excitement that Cradon is known for. One of the highlights included the night wrapped up with the Greeve boys finishing #1 and #2 in final race. We will definitely be going back next season, if you haven’t experienced it then add it to your bucket list. (To see more photos, head to the BDS Facebook Page).
