Toyotas in championship hunt going to Crandon

GREAVES GAINING GROUND IN PRO-4 CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHT - Defending Pro-4 champion Johnny Greaves raced to his third victory of the season earlier this month at the series' second Bark River stop. The Forest County Potawatomi Toyota Tundra 4x4 driver moved into third place in the championship standings with the win in Round 9 and followed that with a solid fourth-place finish in Round 10. He now has 129 championship points, only three behind the leaders with four rounds remaining in the season. Greaves also has more Pro-4 wins (three) than any other driver this season, and he has only finished outside the top five once. The four-time CORR champion recorded third- and fourth-place finishes at the first two Crandon races in June.

KINCAID LEADS PRO-LITE POINTS GOING TO HOME TRACK AT CRANDON - With his fourth victory of the season at Bark River, three-time defending Pro-Lite champion Jeff Kincaid regained the championship lead going to his home track of Crandon weekend. The Forest County Potawatomi Toyota Tacoma driver, from nearby Argonne, Wis., swept both Crandon races in June and has won eight of the last 12 rounds at the famous birthplace of short-track off-road racing. Kincaid's four victories this season is twice as many as his nearest competitor.

STRONG TOYOTA CONTINGENT IN PRO-LITE - In addition to Kincaid's run for a fourth title this season, a group of Toyota-powered Tacoma racers dominate the top 10 in the Pro-Lite standings. Ingles/Mountain Dew Toyota Tacoma racer Steve Federico made it an all-Toyota weekend at Bark River in the last CORR event, scoring his first victory of the season and moving closer to a top-five position in the point standings. Chad Hord, driver of the Boss Snowplow Toyota Tacoma, had his best finish of the year with a second in Round 9 and currently sits fourth, only three points out of the top three in the standings. Toyota Tacoma driver Shayne Pagles, who is second in the Kumho Tire Rookie of the Year standings, is currently ninth in Pro-Lite and had two more top-10 finishes at the last event. Rodney VanEperen, who earned his first career Pro-Lite victory in the first race of the year, is 10th overall.
