Rick Huseman's FABTECH Pro 4 Slated for Vegas Victory at CORR Primm

Riverside, CALIFORNIA -- Rick Huseman returns to familiar ground at the Las Vegas International Raceway at Primm, Nevada this weekend as the 2008 CORR Series returns to the Terrible Herbst's Primm Valley Casinos in search of victory. Driving the FABTECH / Toyo Tires / Toyota TRD #3 Pro 4 truck, Rick Huseman is focused in his charge around the challenging and wide open 1.2 mile race course in Southern Nevada.

Only two weeks ago at the 2008 CORR Series opener, Rick Huseman set the fastest lap time and raced to the second overall position in the elite Pro 4 ranks. At the end of the first weekend of racing, Huseman finished with a 180 total points, placing him in position to run for the lead this upcoming weekend.

Rick explained, "We had a great season opener and we had very little work to do on the race truck. We really didn't have to do a whole lot on the truck after the first weekend of racing. Our new FABTECH Dirt Logic shocks have been service and tuned and we expect to be able to run wild through the big bumps. The combination of our suspension and the rubber that Toyo Tires provides seems to really hook up better than most. We are excited about this second weekend of CORR racing and we expect to be in the winner's circle."

As the CORR Series returns to Las Vegas, Nevada at the Terrible Herbst Primm Valley Resorts, the track has been slightly changed although the massive jump across from the grandstands will provide plenty of high-flying action. It was only late last year, when Huseman Racing provided some spectacular door-to-door racing battles with Johnny Greaves and Carl Renezeder in pursuit of the top spot.

"We like these tracks where you can really open up the truck and let it work. The rhythm section through the big bumps is where we make up a lot of time and I'm looking forward to racing against the nation's best this weekend," commented Huseman

The FABTECH Pro 4 arrives to this off road racing mecca with one goal in mind and that's to put perhaps the fastest Pro 4 race truck in the field in the top spot once again. Thousands of off road fans are expected to pack the grandstands and watch the nation's top drivers compete for the ultimate title in multiple pro classes including Pro 4, Pro 2 and Pro Lite, Pro Buggy and many sportsman classes as well.

Saturday's races from each race weekend will broadcast on SPEED (2 hour show, featuring Pro 4, Pro 2 and Pro Lite and 6 of the 8 episodes will be televised live). NBC Sports will broadcast Sunday's races (90 minute show featuring complete Pro 4 and Pro 2 races, plus Pro Lite highlights and 3 of the 8 episodes will be live). Watch for the FABTECH / Toyo Tires / Toyota TRD Pro 4 flying around the track at the Las Vegas International Raceway at Primm.
