IMG_5188 (002)The John Holtger Racing Team had both their MW and West crews pack up and make their way to Crandon, WI for the 50th World Championship Off-Road Races held over Labor Day Weekend.

This 50th anniversary weekend was a great success for our team! John was registered to compete in (3) different classes – MW Mod Kart, MW Sportsman Stock SXS, and Pro Mod Kart, so it was a busy weekend of racing!
