Indianapolis, Ind. (June 3, 2004)-For the first time in Championship Off Road Racing history, an entire event weekend was cancelled because of severe weather. Although CORR wanted to return to Dresser, race organizers informed CORR officials that the available dates would not work for various reasons.
Championship Off Road Racing Officials have decided to run an extra round of racing at two events, Antigo (June 12-13) and Topeka (July 10-11). Only the race teams registered at Dresser will be allowed to compete in these two rounds. The two rounds designated are Round 1 (Antigo) and Round 6 (Topeka). A total of three rounds will be run at each event.
"It is unfortunate that Mother Nature reared her ugly head at Dresser," said CORR President Marty Reid. "So much preparation took place to make the event a successful weekend, and I want to thank Rick Oehme, Mike Sullivan, Bruce Gunderson and all of the Minnesota Go-4 Wheelers for their tireless efforts preparing for the opening two rounds of the 2004 CORR Lucas Oil Series."
Antigo Schedule: Each team that was at Dresser should be prepared to run the following schedule at Antigo. Sportsman racers will run two times on Saturday and once on Sunday. The Pro racers will run one time on Saturday and twice on Sunday. Pro teams that did not attend Dresser can register Saturday at Antigo since two rounds will be completed on Sunday.
Topeka Schedule: At Topeka, there are several possibilities since a night race is already scheduled for Saturday July 10. Once these plans are finalized, CORR Officials will inform everyone.
Those racers that registered at Dresser will get credit for attending. Those that did not will have used their one and only 'missed event weekend' and will not be able to miss another race weekend during the 2004 CORR Lucas Oil Series season and remain in the year-end championship points fund.
This plan rewards all racers who suffered through the terrible weather by giving them a make-up round made only of those vehicles present at Dresser. In addition, by giving each racer credit for attending Dresser, it allows each racer who made the effort and spent the money to attend Dresser to miss another event weekend and still remain in the championship points chase.
