Support The Howard Young Autism Foundation this Labor Day weekend at the Crandon World Championship Off-Road Races

August 27, 2019

Aug. 28 through Sept. 1, head to Crandon for the 50th Anniversary Polaris RZR Crandon World Championship Off-Road Races. The five-day event features professional drivers competing for the coveted Crandon World Cup.

Jamey Flannery, son of Crandon born and raised racing legend Jack Flannery, will be returning to the track. Flannery’s truck is sponsored by Doug McCoy, McCoy Group and Truck Country, and this race will be the first for Flannery since he and his father last hit the track in 1999. In celebration of this return, Flannery Racing will have apparel in the form of T-shirts and hats with the Flannery and sponsor’s logos on sale, and all proceeds will go to The Howard Young Autism Foundation.

The foundation, which was created in 2017 to support the growing need for resources and services related to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in the community, funds equipment and professional staff that work in the educational and medical advancement of transitioning programs for both children and adults with ASD and learning disabilities.

“I live in Crandon, and I really like what my good friend Doug McCoy has done for autism in the area, so I felt that if I could be helpful from a local standpoint, then people could give back to the communities right here close to us,” Flannery explained. 

Flannery says the T-shirts and hats will be on sale at the Crandon International Raceway all weekend-long, starting at the parade on Friday, Aug. 30.
