“The Dirt City Duel has quickly become a favorite summer celebration for Oconto County,” said Samantha Boucher, Tourism Manager, Oconto County Economic Development Corporation. “The 2021 event promises to be the most exciting one yet, showcasing the best in short-course off-road racing, with an array of drivers in specially modified vehicles competing for glory.” 
Opened in 2019, the Dirt City Motorplex is a motorsports facility located approximately 30 miles north of Green Bay. The property features a one-mile long, short-course off-road track, designed in consultation with several drivers, including Johnny Greaves, a veteran champion driver from the area. Dirt City’s natural viewing area holds up to 10,000 spectators, and the course allows vehicles to fly high in front of the crowd.
