The team continues its expansion into CORR and focuses on improvement and teamwork

Reno, NV (September 11th, 2008) -- Speed Technologies, one of the largest and foremost race teams in the United States and Mexico, continues racing in the CORR series this weekend with two Pro-Lite trucks. The trucks are sponsored by both Bully Dog and Speed Technologies.

Chuck Dempsey, a full-time Speed Technologies driver who also races in both the SCORE and Best in the Desert race series, is continuing his education in CORR racing under the Casey Currie Racing banner with sponsorships by Speed Technologies and Bully Dog. The team, led by Casey Currie, recently added Dempsey and is excited to parlay his extensive desert racing experience into the CORR arena.

"The biggest thing with Chuck is that it's a learning process," said Casey Currie. "CORR is a new style of racing for him and we are restructuring the team to help Chuck drive faster and get him into the top ten."

Casey Currie, a well known CORR and motorcycle racer, has already captured two podium finishes this year and is looking to bring another one home.

"We've spent the last month testing the trucks and they're more dialed in than ever before -- I feel more comfortable behind the wheel with the new suspension changes and I looking for a top placement this race," said Currie.

This is Dempsey's first year racing CORR, but he's well-known in desert racing circles and in 2005 took home a first place motorcycle finish in the Baja 500. Currie has been competing in the off road and motorcycle circuit for over six years. In 2005 Currie raced the SuperTT series in Southern California, and after advancing to the AMA professional SuperMoto series he placed fifth in the nation.
