DORR WINS THRILLING 1ST ANNUAL MOLE LAKE CASINO CUP RACE

CRANDON, WIS. - Under sunny skies and one of the largest off-road racing crowds in the history of the Crandon Brush Run, TORC Stock Truck off- road racer Mitch Dorr, Rockford, Ill., captured the 1st annual Mole Lake Casino Stock Truck Cup race and a lion's share of the $10,000 purse driving a red Ford F150.

Danny Beauchamp, Jr., Escanaba, Mich., powered his way to an early lead and looked to be the eventual race winner, but succumbed to a spindle failure in Crandon's notorious Potawatomi Turn One. Beauchamp flipped violently ending his race. He was uninjured. This opened the "door" for Mitch Dorr to move into the race lead. He was chased hard by Craig Metz, Rhinelander, Wis., and Don Demeny, Appleton, Wis.

The racers finished in that order with Dorr winning $3,000. He was presented a large Mole Lake Casino & Lodge silver Cup in Victory Circle by Sokaogan Mole Lake Band of Chippewa's Tribal Community Chairman Arlyn Ackley, Sr. Ackley was joined by Tom Van Zile, also representing Mole Lake Casino & Lodge, in congratulating the three podium finishers.
