In amongst the excitement of the new Dallara LMP2 and Corvette C.8R, iRacing quietly slipped a new track into the new season 4 update.
Ever since 1970, the town of Crandon, Wisconsin has been home to the World Championship Off-Road Races, short course off-road racing’s premier event, every Labor Day weekend. After first running on a course of more than 25 miles, Crandon International Raceway was soon built, and ever since has served as short course’s answer to tracks like Daytona and Indianapolis.
With a 1.5-mile full layout and 1.25-mile shorter layout, Crandon’s elevation changes, high-flying jumps, and final hairpin corner have produced more than their fair share of dramatic finishes over the years. From Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Famers like Walker Evans and Rob MacCachren, to legendary off-road dynasties like the Greaves, LeDuc, and Crandon’s own Flannery families, only the best of the best have secured World Cup wins at Crandon.
