Cuffaro Races the
No.46 Nissan/UPR Pro Lite to 5th & 6th Finishes
During Final
Los Angeles FAIRPLEX Pomona Race

Pomona, CA - Driving the No. 46 Nissan/UPR Pro Lite from the pole position, Todd Cuffaro has his sights focused on top spot during Sunday's Round 10 of the 2008 Championship Off Road Racing series. Todd powered the black and yellow Nissan/UPR Pro Lite around the race track with a vengeance as he fought off charges from some of the best Pro Lite racers in the nation. However, in the end, it was the battle between the top ten in the championship points for the checkered flag and Todd claimed the sixth spot.

"We had a great run on Sunday, getting lucky on the inversion and starting from the pole position. Last week we made some changes to the race truck and we're very happy with running similar lap times as the leaders. So now it's up to me. In Round 10, I made a mistake that allowed a couple of other guys to get around me near the end of the race and I'm really disappointed with myself for that. The upshot is that we continue to battle for the series points and make strides towards finishing off our first full season in a run for the overall Pro Lite championship," regarded Cuffaro. "And I guarantee that I won't let that happen again," said the San Diego racer.

The CORR track at Los Angeles Fairplex-Pomona Raceway was a .72-mile purpose-built race course, featuring the absolute biggest rhythm section bumps in all off the Championship Off Road Racing. The stadium boasts a near perfect view of the track from the grandstands, affording the fans a very up close and personal look at racers, as they battled in the dirt at top speeds. CORR Officials reported nearly 15,000 total fans packed the grandstands over the weekend.

Saturday's Round 9 saw Todd drive perhaps his best lines of the season and was skipping off the top of the biggest bumps CORR racers have raced in all season long. In qualifying and race action, Todd's lap times were comparable to the current top five in the point's standings. After a solid 16 laps around the LA Fairplex Pomona race track, Todd drove the No.46 Pro Lite across the checkered flag claiming another top five in this 2008 CORR season.

Crew Chief Jorge Lameda commented," This weekend Todd broke some new ground. We've got the truck to the point that he's perfectly comfortable and he's pushing it to the edge. He has a great feel for how far he can go until he's over the top. We're getting very close to experiencing a top three finish and the podium is well within reach. We just need to tag it a couple times before the season is over and see where it all lines up for the final two races."

The No.46 Nissan/UPR Pro Lite turned some serious power out of the Nissan power-plant this past weekend, as the warm Southern California temperatures did not phase the 4-cylinder Nissan engine. Temperatures at the track pushed into the mid-90's. That, coupled with high-humidity, put the squeeze on many of the top engine performers in the Pro Lite field.

Strong Nissan power combined with the brand new BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM and an incredibly tuned FOX Racing Shox suspension, allowed Todd Cuffaro's Pro Lite to charge hard in each aspect of the race track.

Championship Off Road Racing returns to the backyard of Cuffaro Motorsports, as the next race is slated to kick off on September 13-14, 2008 at "The Quarry" located at the Chula Vista International Raceway. The Quarry is only 15 minutes from Cuffaro Motorsports racing headquarters and is a track where Todd excels.

Saturday's Round 9 was broadcasted live from trackside on SPEED Channel and Sunday's Round 10 racing action is scheduled to broadcast on NBC Sports on September 14, 2008 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Check your local listings for the schedule in your area.

Sunday's Round 10 will be broadcasted on Sunday, September 14, 10:30 a.m. to noon on NBC Sports.
