Off-Road Racing comes to Bark River

Race fans in Michigan definitely have a few options this weekend when it comes to watching vehicles with four wheels go as fast as they can. The three-day event of off-road racing began on Friday at the Bark River International Raceway.

Mike Mischler Jr. won the Classix Race, which was the second race on Friday. Mischler was able to get by Mark Chestnut in the final few laps to take home the win.

“Oh it’s fabulous,” said Mischler after the race. “Bark River is a great race track to race at. I enjoy racing here so the win made it even better.”

The TORC Off-Road Racing series takes over the track this weekend for Part One of ‘Throwdown in the U.P.’ Part two takes place in July.
