The Labor Day Weekend event in Crandon not only saw Beauchamp compete in the final two rounds of the TORC Sportsman season, but the team competed in Friday evening’s B & L SAND TOYS Sportsman Trophy Race. Needless to say the Upper Peninsula crew rose to the occasion every time Beauchamp hit the track.

The weekend of racing for Danny Beauchamp and the #826 Coplan’s Iron & Metal/Hill Top RV Superstore/JC’s Mobile Wash/Splash of Color/Pike Distributors Ford F-150 began with the B & L SAND TOYS Sportsman Trophy Race. The race was similar the weekend ending AMSOIL CUP, but this race put nearly thirty Sportsman race trucks representing four truck classes, starting at three separate times, out on the track for over $13,000 in cash and product. Beauchamp at one point led the middle stages of the race, but two racers from the quicker classes were able to make clean passes around the Coplan’s Iron & Metal Super Stock Truck. Even with that said, Beauchamp kept charging and finished third overall, taking home over $2,000 for his efforts.
