Wandahsega Doubles at Crandon...

As the 9 Sportsman 2 trucks lined up to take the green flag.  One thing
was on Ben Wandahsega's mind.  WIN!!

As the green flag dropped his tires fell prisoner to the soft loamy dirt and found the Forest County Potawatomi Toyo Tires truck squeezed between Mike Savage and Ken Hallgren. Experience tells a racer be patient. Although Ben started near the back by midpoint of the 9 lap race he managed to work his way up to the 4th position. As Ben was burning off some incredible lap times taking fastest lap times of the entire Sportsman 2 field of 1:32 to nearly a second faster than Baudoux.

3 laps to go and Baudoux got a flat as did Ross Hoek in his Skyjacker truck. That put Ben in first position and an eventual win. Giving the Ben Wandahsega Off-Road Racing team a double podium finish for the weekend and puts us back in the running for a hopeful repeat championship and a momentarily 3rd spot in the points standing for the year.

1- Ben Wandahsega 2- Jace Shubert 3- Ken Hallgren 4- Ross Hoek
