CORR Making Big Las Vegas Announcement

HERE IT IS, CORR ANNOUNCES PRIMM! You heard it first at Baja Racing
Newport Beach, CA (July 20, 2007) — Championship Off Road Racing is excited to announce the 2007 season finale race weekend will take place at the brand new Las Vegas International Off Road Raceway in Primm, Nevada. With what has been a truly ground breaking season for Championship Off Road Racing it is only fitting to end the season at one of the most thrilling tracks CORR has ever built. The location will give CORR the needed space to create a track worthy for the 2007 Championship battles.
With the point’s race tighter than ever before, the season finale will be the battling grounds to settle feuds, start new ones and crown the 2007 Champions. Will Jerry Whelchel, Carl Renezeder and Rodrigo Ampudia still be leading the point’s standings in their respective Pro classes when CORR arrives in Nevada? Fans stay tuned; anything can happen. The dirt will fly again when the action packed ride of CORR returns on September 15th and 16th at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in Lancaster, CA.
Don’t forget about the second annual Jason Baldwin Memorial Cup race, which takes place at the finale in Primm, Nevada. The race pays tribute to the highly recognized driver Jason Baldwin and his contribution to the sport. Pro 2 and Pro 4 drivers compete throughout the year in seven separate races to qualify in the winner-take-all cup race at the end of the season. In the finale the two classes will be racing against each other, battling it out for a $66,000 purse and the prestigious Jason Baldwin Memorial Cup.
