San Diego, CA (September 9, 2008) - Championship Off Road Racing returns to the metropolitan San Diego area this weekend as racing action kicks off at "The Quarry" located at the Chula Vista International Raceway. The Quarry is only 15 minutes from the motor sports race shop of Todd Cuffaro, driver of the No.46 Nissan/UPR/BFGoodrich Tires Pro Lite.
This weekend's race is the sixth stop of the eight race series as San Diego resident, Todd Cuffaro, leads the 2008 class of CORR Pro Lite rookies in the championship point's standings. In fact, the 24-year old racer is fifth in overall point's chase sharing the top five spots with several previous CORR Pro Lite champions.
"Returning to the Chula Vista race course is always a refresher for us. Racing in our backyard is definitely an advantage and if for some reason we need to utilize our race shop it's only 15 minutes away. I'm looking forward to another great weekend of racing. In a recent test session we made some significant improvements on setup and we continue to work closely with FOX Racing Shox in fine tuning our race day suspension setup," said a smiling Cuffaro.
Facing the challenge against the nation's top Pro Lite racers, Todd Cuffaro has held his own during the first 10 rounds of Championship Off Road Racing. Moving forward to towards the end of the season and with only six rounds of door-to-door racing left, Cuffaro has strategically positioned his team for a run at the top spot beginning this weekend.
"It's time for us to make a charge towards the front of the pack. We've worked closely with our motor specialist and grinded out a few more horsepower, which should give us the extra bump to run at the front of the pack. This weekend you're going to see the No.46 in the hunt for a podium spot," commented Crew Chief Jorge Lameda.
Championship Off Road Racing returns to its home track at the Chula Vista International Raceway where thousands of fans are expected to watch the most exciting form of off road motorsports seen in over a decade. The 2008 CORR season has experienced increased television coverage including live television broadcasts by both NBC Sports and SPEED Channel. That coupled with racing in metropolitan areas has increased the popularity of off road racing to the casual spectator as the grandstands have been packed with fans of all ages. Check out the CORR website at www.corracing.com for ticket information.
Saturday's Round 11 will be broadcasted live from trackside in a two-hour show on SPEED Channel and Sunday's Round 12 racing action is scheduled to broadcast on NBC Sports on October 5, 2008 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Check your local listings for the schedule in your area.
