CHAMPIONSHIP OFF ROAD RACING (CORR) ANNOUNCES ENHANCED RACE SCHEDULE FOR THE 2006 CORR LUCAS OIL RACING SERIES

Newport Beach, CA - (Tuesday, February 7, 2006) - Championship Off Road Racing organizers today announced changes and improvements to the Lucas Oil Race Pro and Sportman series' schedules.

Midwest Sportsman Series races held in Crandon, Wisconsin and Bark River, Michigan and Antigo, Wisconsin will feature all Sportsman classes including Light Buggy, Single Buggy, Super Buggy, Stock Truck and Sportsman 2. The Midwest Pro Series racing will feature Pro Lite, Pro 2 and Pro 4 classes.

Because of the success of the format in 2005, the Western Sportsman Series held in Chula Vista, CA will consist of Single Buggies and invite desert class 1600 to race alongside. Super Buggies will also compete and invite Class 10 and Class 12 Buggies to race alongside. The Western Pro Series racing will feature Pro Lite, Pro 2 and Pro 4 classes.

Within the Sportsman Series there will be the two distinct geographic points champions, Midwest and Western, while within the Pro classes there will be one unified champion as determined by cumulative points. Sportsman Series racers are invited to race in each other's geographic series.

Within the Western Pro Series, there have been two new money races added to the regular points series races for each of the four weekends. The races will be a shoot-out format with a purse of $20,000 per race. This means that Pro 2 and Pro 4 racers will race twice on one of the weekend race days. The money races will alternate between the Pro 2 and Pro 4 classes on Saturday or Sunday.

Television coverage on SPEED, which currently is available to 68 million households across the country, will feature four hours of television coverage for each weekend of Pro racing. This exciting new format will feature two races from the Pro Series racing and highlights from the Sportsman Series racing (except Light Buggy) in each episode.
