Cuffaro Motorsports Completes Final Pro Lite Test Heading Into 2008 CORR Season Opener
San Diego, CA (April 21, 2008) -- Todd Cuffaro is no stranger to the world of professional motor sports. In fact, the past 8 years has been a whirlwind of top racing performances within several different racing disciplines for the 24-year old San Diego native.
Fast forward, to the 2008 CORR Series as Cuffaro Motorsports ha diligently prepared to race in the highly competitive Pro Lite field. Working seven days a week during the entire off season, Todd has led his dedicated team to the beginning of what is expected to be an exciting season of Championship Off Road Racing.
In early September 2007, Todd secured a championship winning Nissan Pro-Lite truck from Chad Hord and immediately went to work behind the wheel during the last few 2007 CORR race weekends in order to secure all important seat time.
With the 2008 season about ready to kick off, Todd arrived to his final test session of the season in his backup Nissan Pro Lite race truck and cut laps around Lake Elsinore Off Road test track in anticipation of race day.
Todd commented, "Today was a final test before heading to LA Fairplex-Pomona for the first race of the season. We are bringing two race trucks to each race throughout the season so I feel we are ready for any situation. There is one goal in mind and that's to put these trucks in the winner's circle and contend for the season championship. We've got some great help from our sponsors and we recently secured our tire deal with BFGoodrich Tires for the season and there is no doubt that they provide the best tire in Championship Off Road Racing."
Cuffaro Motorsports will field two precisely tuned Nissan Pro Lite race trucks in 2008 and today's test featured the final adjustments on the new second truck. They arrived to the track with a single-goal in mind and that was to dial in the final tuning of the rear suspension and spend more time in the seat of the #46 Pro Lite.

"The set-up on the second truck is slightly different than the first truck and we'll use the trucks at different tracks, as well as being able to rely on the second truck in case we have issues with the first truck," explained Cuffaro.
Taking a moment from wrenching on the rear FOX Racing Shox coil over shock, crew chief Jorge Lameda commented, "Our strategy is to start the season with solid performances in each race. Sixteen races throughout the entire year is a lot and we know that we must perform and finish each race in the top five to have a chance at the season championship."
Todd explained, "This season is definitely our rookie season, however the seat time we were able to get in the latter half of the 2007 season provided us with an incredible look at what was needed to accomplish our 2008 goals. This class is going to be incredibly tight among the top contenders. We have run similar times to the so-called fast guys and I'm confident we'll be right there."
