RECORD BREAKING CROWD SHOWS UP TO CORR THIS WEEKEND

     Over 25,000 people showed up to watch Championship Off Road Racing this weekend in Chula Vista, CA. This is the largest crowd in CORR history! It couldn’t have been more perfect timing since this was the first time ever that CORR had been live on TV both Saturday and Sunday. The SPEED channel aired the Pro 2, Pro Lite, and Pro 4 races on Saturday and NBC Sports aired the Pro 4 and Pro 2 races on Sunday.

     Todd Leduc of Rockstar Makita LeDuc had a great weekend in the Pro 2 class finishing 4th on Saturday and 3rd on Sunday. He has now moved up to 2nd place in the overall CORR 2008 series points standings. In the Pro 4 class Kyle LeDuc of Rockstar Makita LeDuc finished 4th on Saturday and did not finish on Sunday because of technical problems. Curt LeDuc of Rockstar Makita LeDuc finished ninth on Saturday and did not finish on Sunday also struggling with technical issues. In the Pro Lite class Brian Deegan of Rockstar Makita LeDuc finished 10th on Saturday and unfortunately did not finish on Sunday. Jimmy Weitzel of Dragonfire Makita Polaris is still working out the bugs in his UTV as he finished 10th on Saturday and 15th on Sunday in the UTV class.

  

Rockstar Makita LeDuc and Dragonfire Makita Polaris will be back in action on August 16-17 in Pomona, CA. This race is scheduled to be broadcasted LIVE on the SPEED channel.
