Crandon Raceway Appoints New Track Administrator
CRANDON, WI -- Crandon International Off-Road Raceway has named Allison Morrow as Track Office Administrator. She is responsible for day- to-day operation of the track's front office and event coordination.
Morrow replaces Tiffany Landru. Landru accepted a position as Business Affairs Manager with the Lucas Oil World Series of Off-Road Racing late last year.
Morrow has resided in Wisconsin the past four years. She is a native of Staples, MN, near Brainerd. A self-described "outdoor girl", Allison and her husband, Erik, enjoy off-road racing, hunting, fishing, 4-wheeling and spending time with their dogs. She spent the last four years in the banking industry.
"I am looking forward to meeting everyone involved with the track and working hard with the team to help keep Crandon Raceway the number one destination to race off-road," said Morrow. "I am just very, very excited about my new career at Crandon Raceway. It is a chance to work with great people in an exciting business," she said.
Like many others, Morrow was bitten by the off-road bug when she attended her first Crandon event. "The Crandon races are the events of the year that thousands of people enjoy," she said. "Being part of the crowd attending the races every year, it is a special opportunity to experience the other side -- the inside -- of the business of motorsports," she said.
"Allison brings plenty of enthusiasm to the position," said Cliff Flannery, president, Crandon Raceway. "We know she will be a positive addition to our team and she is looking forward to working with racers, fans, suppliers, sponsors and the media this coming year," he said.
Crandon International Off-Road Raceway features five major events in 2007. The season officially opens with the FCP Gathering Thunder Biker Rally June 15-16.
2007 off-road racing action kicks off at Crandon Raceway June 23-24 with two rounds of Lucas Oil WSORR competition at the FCP Brush Run Races. The weekend features 11 classes of off-road racing each day. The grand finale of the weekend is the Potawatomi Heavy Metal Challenge.
The FCP Northern Cup Motocross Series featuring the Lucas Oil Lucas Cycles Moto-X Championships descends on Crandon Raceway July 22. That is followed by the Lucas Oil Ultimate ATV Experience July 28-29.
Later in the year, Crandon hosts the annual off-road World Championships over Labor Day weekend, August 31-September 2. Off-road racing's biggest event of the year, the World Championships feature the 13th annual battle for the BorgWarner Shootout and $125,000 BorgWarner Cup.
The track will again feature a special Potawatomi Northern Lights Casino matchplay promotion on all its event wristbands. All paid admissions are entitled to a free $5 matchplay Saturday and Sunday of event weekends. Spectators need only show their wristband at the Casino Player's Club. The Potawatomi Northern Lights Casino is open 24 hours.
