What To Look For At Ft. Dodge:
IOWA NATIVE LOOKS FOR VICTORY AT HOME:
Toyota Tacoma racer Chris Brandt, a Council Bluffs, Iowa, native born in Sioux City, returns to his home track at Ft. Dodge. Brandt, the 1999 CORR Pro Series Rookie of the Year, won a race and finished third in the other at Ft. Dodge in 2000. He was second overall in the Pro-Lite class in 2000 and third in his rookie season of 1999. Brandt's four career victories is third among active drivers in Pro-Lite.
BEST TEAM IN OFF-ROAD RACING BUILDS NEW TRUCKS:
Forest County Potawatomi Race Team owners/drivers Jeff Kincaid and Johnny Greaves have built new Toyota trucks for 2001 in hopes of continuing their unparalleled off-road racing success. Kincaid, a 2001 Honorable Mention on the American Auto Racing Writers and Broadcasters Association (AARWBA) All-American Team, returns to defend his Pro-Lite championship in a new Tacoma. Greaves, the 1997-99 Pro-Lite champion, moves up from the Pro-2 class to Pro-4 in a new Tundra 4x4.
After forming the two-truck team in 1997, the Greaves-Kincaid duo has dominated the CORR series like no other team in off-road racing. Together, they have won 55 of 88 races (63%) and four consecutive Pro-Lite class championships. Greaves, of DePere, Wis., is the all-time CORR series leader in victories with 22 and holds the record for consecutive victories in a season (8 in 1998). He will look to be the first driver to win a race in all three Pro Series classes as he moves up to Pro-4 in 2001. Kincaid, of Argonne, Wis., who started last season with a record five straight wins, hopes to repeat his Pro-Lite championship. He set a single-season CORR record with 12 victories in 2001, and he is now third in all-time CORR victories.
CHRIS BRANDT, Toyota Tacoma Pro-Lite Driver/Team owner of Brandt Racing:
"We won the first race at Ft. Dodge last year, so I'm really looking forward to this weekend. It's only a couple of hours from my home, which is a nice way to start the season. Plus, it's great to have family and friends out to watch and support us."
JOHNNY GREAVES, Toyota Tundra Pro-4 Driver/Co-owner of Forest County Potawatomi Race Team:
"My brother Curt and I have been working hard during the off season building this new Tundra 4x4. We learned a lot last year when we built our Pro-2 Tundra, and it helped in knowing what to do and what not to do with this truck. I've tested quite a bit at the track behind my house, which has gone great. I can't wait to get to Iowa."
