CRANDON, Wis. – Leading drivers will battle it out for the big prize at the Big House this Labor Day weekend as TORC: The Off-Road Championship presented by AMSOIL returns to the legendary Crandon Int’l Off-Road Raceway for its exciting championship finale.

“Crandon’s the bad boy of off-road and everyone wants to be a part of it,” said double defending champion C.J. Greaves. “Crandon brings in everyone because it’s just plain fast: you’re doing 100 miles per hour through Turn 1, sideways. And then there’s the whole scene, the crazy crowds, bands going on at night, and the energy of tens of thousands of people going nuts.”

He is locked in a battle with his father for the PRO 4WD championship, as veteran racer Johnny Greaves seeks to reclaim the title. The two drivers have been in an exciting race all season long, with the younger Greaves now leading the standings by six points. A long shot is Showdown in Charlotte race winner Scott Douglas, who will be looking to return his AMSOIL PRO 4WD to the top of the box in Saturday’s season ender.

At least one championship title is assured for double defending champ CJ Greaves. He heads into the Saturday finale preparing for his PRO 2WD victory lap. Despite dogging his rival all season, Crandon local Keegan Kincaid is mathematically out of contention heading into his home event by a heartbreaking single point.

In the Atturo Tire PRO Light class, Kyle Hart is all but assured his first championship crown. As long as he takes the start on Saturday, he’ll lock up the title. The second-generation racer, who finished third in the championship last season, has had a successful second year of competition in the TORC Series’ fiercely competitive development class.

The TORC Series finale joins the 47th annual Off-Road World Championship weekend in Crandon, with PRO racing in four classes: the powerful, four-wheel drive PRO 4WD trucks, the 900 horsepower rear-wheel drive PRO 2WD machines, the fiercely competitive Atturo Tire PRO Lights, as well as a return of the PRO UTV division.
