NASCAR DRIVER ROBBY GORDON IS BACK FOR MORE CORR™ RACING

Newport Beach, CA (May 15, 2007) — Championship Off Road Racing is attracting the attention of high profile talent from all corners of motorsports. Among them, NASCAR driver Robby Gordon and AMA Supercross Champion Jeremy McGrath. CORR is please to announce both drivers are committed to races in 2007.

On April 22, 2007, in his first CORR race ever, Baja 1000 winner Gordon took the lead at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds. Now he is coming back to win at the LA Fairplex this Sunday. Gordon will race a Baldwin prepared Pro 2 in both the CORR Lucas Oil Series and Jason Baldwin Memorial Cup Qualifier.

Gordon’s enthusiasm for CORR has led him to commit to several more CORR races in 2007, including Sept. 29th and 30th in Chula Vista; Oct. 19th and 20th in Texas; Nov. 3rd in Nevada.

“I like what CORR is doing for off road racing, Jim Baldwin has shown a definite vision for the series and I am excited to come back and run up front and win in the Pro 2 class,” said Robby Gordon.

Gordon will return this weekend as the driver of the #71 Monster Energy Drink Toyo Tires Pro Comp Baldwin prepared Pro 2. Gordon is racing in round four of the Pro 2 CORR Lucas Oil series, as well as the NBC broadcast Jason Baldwin Memorial Cup Series Qualifier.

Seven time AMA Supercross Champion and late model driver for JR Motorsports, Jeremy McGrath has officially committed to racing in the first race weekend in Chula Vista on June 9th and 10th. The skilled racer will be racing in a Baldwin prepared Pro 2.

“CORR is thrilled to see the amount of high profile talent coming to race in the series. We have had a very successful start to the season with NBC bringing the series to a wider audience,” said Cissy Baldwin, COO of CORR.

Championship Off Road Racing™ brings high action, four wheel motorsports including 2 wheel drive and 4 wheel drive trucks to the closed course off road arena. The 2007 CORR season includes seven events at tracks located in Los Angeles and San Diego, CA, Texas and Nevada.
