CRANDON, Wis. — The second annual Lucas Oil Legends Poker Run presented by Polaris will take race and off-road fans on a picturesque 78-mile run starting under the golden gates of Crandon International Raceway.
Created as a charity fundraiser spotlighting the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin’s Forest County, this exclusive event is limited to 100 UTVs and features a 78-mile route through tree-lined countryside as well as stops at the Potawatomi Carter Casino and a final celebration in downtown Crandon.
Participants will join Crandon off-road racing legends as they kick-off the largest short-course, off-road race in the world while simultaneously raising donations benefitting the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame (ORMHOF) and the Forest County ATV Association.
The Poker Run is designed as a fun run held in beautifully groomed forest terrain that will also offer a chance to win some valuable prizes from Lucas Oil, Polaris, Yokohama Tires, Vision Wheel, Rigid Industries and more.
“For years our fans enjoyed the various trail rides we have taken through the forests surrounding the race track to kick off World Championship weekend,” explained Crandon Promoter Marty Fiolka. “With the help of Lucas Oil, Polaris and other partners we can learn from our first Poker Run in 2021 and elevate this annual gathering into something very special every year. We also have to thank the legendary drivers that will be part of this event as well as the Forest County ATV association for helping plan and guide the run itself.”
The 53rd Polaris Crandon World Championship Off-Road Races, featuring the 7th annual Red Bull Crandon World Cup, will be held over Labor Day weekend from September 1-4.
