Hi - We've got race reports as well as live commentary during the truck races over on the newly relaunched Prerunners.Com. We had SO much fun doing race commentary in our chatroom at the last CORR race - I get pretty excited, but I type fast with not toooo many typos. It's not streaming video or anything fancy like that, but it'll be fun and I am happy to answer any questions you have during the chats. Last time we had some family of some of the racers hanging out with us and it was pretty cool to keep them updated. Anyway, check it out if you get a chance! We've already got a lot of stuff posted.

UNREAL.. This is my first CORR event I have been to and I will be at the rest, it was unreal racing. Money well spent, go for the reserved $30 seating. If you have no plans tomorrow or plans you can get out of ATTEND THIS EVENT. You will love it. Awesome racing, great pit areas open, every energy drink you can think of being given away. The Baldwin family has stepped it up huge, Red Bull stunt Parachuters came flying in during opening ceremonies, a very touching tribute to Jason was shown. Troy Herbst kicked butt in Pro 4, Marking finished 5th in his first pro lite race. It was cool seeing all of the desert racers crossing over and doing great. Get out there tomorrow.

Absolutely 100% agree with ya JB. I missed the CORR races last year, and almost didn't get there this year due to work....but I'm so glad I did. I'd have to say that even the $20 seats were great. I was right in the middle of the two "bowl" turns near the top of the stands, and got to see the whole track no problem.

As far as who was fast.....holy crap Greeves truck was fast. Too bad it had problems at the mandatory yellow, because he was checking out. He had that thing on the gas coming into the first turn.....I got goosebumps hearing it every lap.

Also.....how about Herbst and Coyne smacking the wall on the tribute/"match race" laps.......Coyne went in hard!!! It was hard to believe just how hard the pro-2/4's come into that first corner.

Like JB said, if you can........get out there tomorrow........you won't regret it.

**Can't emphasize that enough! I have a new favorite event. It's definitley like no other. 3 more weekends and I'm not missing them.
I thought they watered turns 1 and 2 a little too much, that dirt gets Really slick when soaked. The wall slamming was interesting. We like to call turn 2 "SeaWorld", for all the people against the fence getting roosted.:D

Just got back from the Corr races on Sunday and can't begin to tell you how much fun my family had. All the racing was competitive and the program moved along for the most part quickly. Troy Herbst put on quite a show in the Pro-4 race for only his 2nd time behind the wheel in this type of vehicle and placed a strong 2nd and could have won but he gave Carl a break on the last two laps exiting turn 1. The drivers hang around for at least an hour after the race to visit with the fans which was a big hit with my boys. I'm going to do my best to put together a Pro-2 Ford ASAP so I don't miss anymore of the fun.
 
Hey Klaus, thanks for the plug on Off-Road.com

The way I look at it “the more the merrier”--I want to bring up the sport, and I know many other dedicated photographer, videographers, journalist, and the entire fan base feels the same.

So no matter what dotcom or crew you might be representing—don’t forget that we are all off-roaders…and we are family.

Keep up the good work.
