Keegan Kincaid had a higher power riding with him at Crandon International Raceway last weekend.
Just weeks after losing close friend Steve Sekel, Kincaid dominated the 26th Annual Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run on Saturday and Sunday. The Crandon native swept both points-paying Pro 2 races in the Lucas Oil Midwest Short Course League standings, and collected an additional $10,000 bonus by winning the Community Cup race that pits the Pro 2 and Pro 4 trucks against one another over fellow Pro 2 veteran Chad Hord.
“I don’t even know what to say—I’m speechless,” Kincaid said after taking the Community Cup victory. “My family and friends have been behind me, and we’ve dealt with a loss that has been tragic for all of us, but this helps us get through it. It’s amazing, this is a weekend I’ll remember for the rest of my life. We’re blessed to be able to do what we do, and being able to keep going.
“I feel good. We’ve kept making changes to this truck, and we’ve been fast. We just keep striving to be better each and every event, don’t settle, and we keep progressing. Hopefully we can just keep knocking off wins, that’s our goal.”
Johnny and CJ Greaves split the Pro 4 races on the weekend, with Johnny finishing best of the Pro 4s in the Community Cup race in third. The defending Community Cup winner was looking for his record-extending seventh victory in the big-money race. Still, it was a successful weekend for one of short course’s most famous families, as CJ also swept the Pro Stock SXS races—not a bad Father’s Day gift, by any means.
At a track where a 14th place finish last year crippled his Pro Mod SXS title hopes, Kyle Chaney exacted his revenge with a weekend sweep of his own; he now boasts a four-race MSCL winning streak. Pro Lite saw more of the same, as Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series regular Christopher Polvoorde kicked off his commitment to a full national season by scoring a pair of victories over defending LOORRS champion and fellow 2019 national full-timer Ryan Beat.
Streamed via the brand new Crandon Live! platform, this weekend’s 26th Annual Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run attracted upwards of 160,000 views over two days. The Lucas Oil Midwest Short Course League will return to action in just under a month, as the series heads to ERX Motor Park in Elk River, Minnesota on July 12-13 for the ERX Off-Road National.
