NISSAN DOUBLES CONTINGENCY FOR 2007 WITH LUCAS OIL WORLD SERIES OF OFF-ROAD RACING
SMYRNA, TN -- Nissan North America, Inc., has announced its 2007 Contingency Award Program with the Lucas Oil World Series of Off-Road Racing (WSORR). Nissan is posting in two premier WSORR classes -- the PRO 2WD pickup truck class and the PRO Light Pickup class.
Prize amounts for both WSORR classes are $2,000 for a first place finish and $1,000 for a runner-up finish. These prize postings are double the amounts from last season. WSORR will race 14 rounds of racing at seven venues this coming season.
Nissan is also posting $5,000 as a year-end Nissan Driver's Championship Award. Eligible off-road race trucks include Nissan Frontier PRO Light Pickups and Nissan Titan PRO 2WD Pickups.
Significantly, selected Nissan "factory-backed" teams are not eligible for awards, opening up the contingency cash to a broad field. Nissan is the defending brand in both PRO 2WD and PRO Light Pickup classes in the former Championship Off-Road Racing circuit, which raced in the Midwest last year.
Champion Nissan drivers Carl Renezeder, Newport Beach, CA, and Chad Hord, Felch, MI, are the reigning nationwide champions in the PRO 2WD and PRO Light Pickup classes, respectively.
"We have a racer incentive program for both Nissan defending champions that is separate and distinct from our 2007 World Series of Off-Road Racing contingency program," said Ron Stukenberg, senior manager, Nissan motorsports marketing & operations. "We feel our World Series program is an excellent way to reward all off-road competitors racing Nissans off-road with WSORR."
Nissan posts contingency is a wide variety of motorsports programs ranging from WSORR's off-road circuit to the Grand Am Rolex Series to Formula Drift.
The WSORR contingency program requires enrollment with Nissan's Motorsports Marketing and Operations group. A Grassroots Racing Parts Program is also offered by Nissan. The program provides special pricing on Nissan Motorsports parts. Information about the program is available via email at email@example.com.
The Lucas Oil World Series of Off-Road Racing features a high speed, high impact off-road racing experience for racers and fans at key tracks in Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri and Wisconsin this coming season. WSORR opens the season May 19-20 at the Steele County Fairgrounds in Owatonna, MN.
