P.O. Box 99, Crandon, WI, 54520.   Facsimile number is (715) 478-3999.

Crandon is a prime location for the Series' headquarters operations. The town is home to legendary Crandon International Off-Road Raceway - the premier off-road race track in the country.

"Short course off-road racing has been nurtured, raised and has blossomed in the Midwest and Crandon is the indisputable number one destination for professional off-road racers and fans in the U.S.," said Doug Davis, president & general manager, WSORR. Davis noted that WSORR is a national touring circuit and maintains satellite offices across the U.S. including Arizona, Colorado and Florida.

"We want to thank our founding sponsors Lucas Oil, Forest County Potawatomi and BorgWarner for helping to make Crandon the center for short course off-road racing in this country." said Davis. "It's a colorful, race ready office in the heart of the World Capital of professional off- road racing," he said.

Midwest style off-road racing had it roots in Crandon 38 years ago. The sport has grown from an amateur race through the woods of Northern Wisconsin, through three sanctioning bodies -- MORA, SODA, CORR - to the present day WSORR.

The new WSORR offices will now be a backdrop for the largest gathering of short course off-road racers in the country at the annual BorgWarner World Championships held every Labor Day weekend at Crandon Raceway. The famous Raceway is approximately two miles west of the WSORR offices. Each year, prior to the off-road World Championships, racers and their race machines invade the street to mix and mingle with fans in a carnival like atmosphere.

A formal office grand opening and official ribbon-cutting hosted by WSORR staff for motorsport dignitaries, sponsors, and government officials will be held this coming Spring.

The World Series has already announced its web site (www.wsorr.com) and "Tour 2007" schedule with its kick-off race in Owatonna, MN, on May 19- 20, 2007. The WSORR "Tour 2007" features 14 rounds of points racing.

In addition to the Minnesota race weekend, the 2007 campaign includes two stops at Crandon Raceway, two stops at the U.P. 100 Raceway in Bark River, MI, one stop in Michigan's Lower Peninsula at I-96 Speedway near Grand Rapids, and the first professional off-road race of its type ever in Missouri at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO.

"We are impressed by the rapid progress made by the WSORR group," said Gus Frank, chairman, Forest County Potawatomi Community. "The World Series inaugural season will be top notch. We not only believe in their vision but we are invested in their roadmap for the future as they take off- road racing to new heights," he said.

WSORR features professional high performance, high horsepower 4x4 and 2WD pickup trucks racing in their natural environment -- off-road. Other featured classes include Super Truck and Stock pickups as well as exotic, high revving buggies and entry level classes. More information about the World Series is available on the worldwide web at www.wsorr.com.
