Hello, my name is Joe Krantz and I am the founder and President of Hard Hit Promotions.  HHP was formed in 2006 after the Grant County Fair Board contacted my father and I to see if we were interested in running the show for the 2007 season.  HHP has been running the Grant County show in Lancaster, WI since and added in the “Night of Destruction” to the show that same year.  The “Night of Destruction” has sold out all years running to this date!  In 2009, we added the Blakes Prairie Fair in Bloomington, WI to our show schedule with a car demolition derby and truck demolition.  In 2013, we added the Iowa County Fair in Mineral Point, WI and the Crawford County Fair in Gays Mills, WI to our schedule. In 2017, we are added Richland County fair to our schedule. This show takes place in Richland Center, WI.

My refs consist of Brad Klaas, Danny Bishop, Mark Stoney, Roger Krantz and Mike Nihles all of which have competed extensively!  The ladies that keep the paperwork straight are as follows Ashley Krantz and  Marissa Vesperman. We added Doug Collins to our crew as our announcer after the passing of our dear friend Tommy Greenwood. We have numerous volunteers that help out operate equipment, clean the track, and many other behind the scene activities.

We take pride in providing a fun and safe entertainment platform!
