CUFFARO on Target
as the Second Half of
CORR Season Kicks Off
@ LA Fairplex-Pomona this Weekend

San Diego, CA - Todd Cuffaro and his crew have worked hard to dial in the No. 46 UPR Racing Supply/Nissan Motorsports Pro Lite in preparation for the second half of the 2008 Championship Off Road Racing Season.

The festivities begin mid-week as CORR will move professional teams into the Los Angeles Fairplex-Pomona race track making way for what is expected to be an incredible weekend of racing. The racing will be televised live on SPEED TV beginning at 2:00 p.m. PST. CORR has amped up this weekend's race on Southern California's television and radio stations, billing this weekend's event as the final race weekend in Los Angeles until next season. Thousands of fans are expected to fill the LA Fairplex-Pomona fairgrounds in search of the nation's top off road racers banging doors and racing hard for the checkered flag.

This .76 mile CORR race track features a huge jump on the back straightaway, before racers dive deep into the twisting bowl in the center of the track and come out at high-speeds headed for some of the biggest bumps in Championship Off Road Racing

For Todd Cuffaro, the return to this track provides the entire team with a reprieve from the unfortunate incident that he had during the June race. The No. 46 UPR Racing Supply/Nissan Motorsports Pro Lite met with near disaster as Todd's race truck was pummeled by the reigning CORR Pro Lite champion, who was later black flagged for the incident. As the trucks emerged from the pile of crushed steel tube, the 24-year old San Diego racer was faced with driving a wounded truck. Todd overcame the difficulties and managed to finish 11th overall.

Returning to the track for Sunday's Round 6, Todd demonstrated this team's resilience with a solid 6th place finish in front of a nearly sold-out crowd.

Todd spoke about his return to Pomona: "We are excited to be returning to LA Fairplex-Pomona and hope to capitalize on what we learned from racing at Pomona in June. It's a great track and we seem to run very fast there. The team is really clicking on all cylinders and we're in good shape as we head into the second half of the season. We're in fifth position overall in the points and that sets us up for a solid run towards the season championship."

The weather conditions at the race track this weekend are expected to have temperatures hovering in the low to mid 90's with track being extremely hot.

The 2008 season is the first full season of CORR racing for the driver of the No. 46 UPR Racing Supply/Nissan Motorsports Pro Lite and he's embraced the opportunity as the leader of the 15 Pro Lite rookies on the race track this season.

Since the opening race of the season, the talented CORR rookie has scored four Top 5 finishes along with finishing in the Top 10 of the 28 truck field every race except in Round 5 when he suffered extensive truck damage at the hands of another racer.

It's been a wild ride so far this season. We're headed into this race with a vengeance and our recent testing sessions have been excellent. I see nothing but continued Top 5 finishes for the No.46 truck," said a confident Cuffaro.

Fans are encouraged to visit the Cuffaro Motorsports Nissan / UPR Racing Supply Pit Zone to receive signed autograph hero cards of Todd Cuffaro who will be signing autographs at noon each day.

Saturday's Round 9 of the 2008 CORR Series will be broadcasted on Speed Channel on live with coverage beginning at 2:00 p.m. PST. Sunday's Round 10 will be broadcasted on Sunday, September 14, 10:30 a.m. to noon on NBC Sports.
