Brandon “The Stinger” Arthur Debuts At Crandon

Crandon, WI

Brandon “The Stinger” Arthur made a trip to the birthplace of short course racing; the “Big House” in Crandon, Wisconsin. The Big House is where racing history meets wide-open throttles and thousands of ardent race fans.

The high speed track has seen epic battles over the years, but in stark contrast to the intensity on the track, Crandon has a mellow, laid back atmosphere that begins with a parade on Friday through the center of town.

“The Parade was really cool, said Arthur, “The town shuts down and everyone joins in on the parade. The fans were everywhere; checking out all the race vehicles parked on the street. Once all the floats go past, we all fired up our engines and drove to the track. It was our first time at Crandon. We came out to have fun and to learn the track. Some of the fans already knew about our team. I signed a lot of autographs and we passed out a bunch of stickers, posters, and T-shirts. I’m sure we will come back, it was a lot of fun.”

The track is famous for many of its features like the gravel pit, the pond, and for its land rush starts that shoot the entire field into turn one at wide open throttle. “We had a great time and learned a lot but didn’t get the results we are used to,” said “The Stinger,” “The track was very high speed, long and open. It reminded me of Reno.

Everyone was running the same line up by the cushion so it was hard to pass. We were in the top five on Saturday but got run up the track in one corner and then got into a pile-up in the next turn. We had some good battles going with the Midwest guys on their track.”

The track usually starts out muddy and then dries out in the final laps. Brandon’s Toyo Tires were hooked up in both conditions. The long journey to Crandon was made possible by Competitive Metals who provided additional funding for the trip. It was a great learning experience and provided unique knowledge to the team’s database.

That info might come in handy in Reno next season or at the next race in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, the “Fight Under the Lights” at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park in Lake Elsinore, CA. on September 23 – 24.
