Todd Cuffaro Charging The #46 CORR Pro Lite Hard / Top Five in Points Headed Into CORR Las Vegas
San Diego, CA (May 12, 2008) -- The 2008 Championship Off Road Racing Series returns to dirt at the Las Vegas International Raceway at Primm with door-to-door racing action on May 17th & 18th, 2008. Technically considered a rookie for the 2008 season, Todd Cuffaro will buckle into the #46 Nissan-powered Pro Lite as he charges towards breaking into the top three by weekend's end.
Facing many of the nation's top Pro Lite racers, Todd has positioned himself nicely for a run to the top. He is currently positioned with 166 total series points tied for fifth place in the season point's battle, which is destined to become even tighter as the season wears on.
Racing the powerful Nissan-power plant in the exquisitely prepped #46 race truck, Cuffaro has one goal in mind and that's to continue his strategy towards winning the 2008 CORR Pro Lite series championship.
Todd said, "We have retained the services of Sly Alvira, who was instrumental in working with the previous owner of our championship winning truck, Chad Hord. Sly brings an incredible wealth of knowledge to our program relating to the Nissan power plant in addition to the truck overall.'
"We are excited to race in the CORR Series, as well as be part of their television package. We had some TV exposure during the last race weekend and that translates into great impressions for our sponsors."
Todd's program is supported by Nissan Motorsports, BFGoodrich Tires, FOX Racing Shox, UPR Racing Supply, Competitive Metals, Miller Machine Works and Red Line Synthetic Oil.
Cuffaro commented, "We are coming back to a race track that we have as much track time as the rest of the competition. Prior to the season, we tested here extensively and I feel confident that we can run fast anywhere on the Vegas track. We are in good company near the top of the Pro Lite field and we've made some significant adjustments since the last race. I'm excited to be in the top five and I plan to drive us into the top three by the end of Round 4."
Scheduled for 16 rounds of off road racing at three tracks in the western United States, Championship Off Road Racing continues their extensive television coverage on both SPEED TV and NBC Sports as they head into the second weekend of racing, which includes the very competitive Pro Lite field.
Cuffaro Motorsports invites fans, sponsors, friends and family to join the race weekend festivities in the pits where you can watch all the action up close and personal.
