May 12, 2009 ForImmediate Release:


In an Effort to Help Racers, NORRS is Offering DEEP Discounts



After much consideration and in an effort to help all race teams make it to the track in today’s economy, NORRS is announcing a (50%) discount in the registration fee for each and every class racing during the first 2 weekends of the 2009 season.

Aaron Mortenson of NORRS stated, “In today’s economy it is in NORRS & the sport’s best interest to do what we can to help the racers, both PRO & SPORTSMAN. The (50%) discount will be in effect for all classes. We only hope that this helps in some little way to get a few of the teams that might be on the fence, to come out and be apart of our first 4 rounds (2 weekends) of racing. With CBS coverage and all classes getting television exposure, I hope this will be a positive move in trying to get more teams to come race. This may appear to be a move of desperation, but I assure you that it is not. The recent history that has plagued this sport is that the racers were being taken advantage of and NORRS is just trying to give back in some small way.”

So with that being said, bring your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors, anyone you can think of and, let’s make this inaugural event at Antelope Valley, the best Memorial Day weekend ever.

Is this what you're talking about Bill? Aaron and the boys were cackling like old ladies playing bingo tonight when they called me. So far this is the only picture that they sent me. Things are coming together with 10 days to go.

Land Rush Start...... that is what got me hooked with amazement at my first CORR race in '05. Then they took it away!

Big points scored for NORRS.... and the discount.... hope that brings in the numbers..... with a land rush start, it becomes a photog/video guy's dream. Might just have to come down there and check out Antelope Valley for Memorial Day weekend.

Not sure yet Bill...thinking about it! Landrush starts are the best!! :)

Yeah it won`t be a very long one before having to merge but should be good enough.NORRS is offering some pretty sweet deals for racing their series.Heck a $25.00 crew pass gets you into all the races.And anyone on your team can get a crew pass.

sorry to point this out , but with 100% payback, by cutting the entry fee in half this only discourages the fast guys from coming as now they only win half as much....................for the donkeys its great as they are only donating half as much to the fast guys...............................now, back to the positive stuff.............

First off, the first positive step would be "pistol" keeping his nose out of short course issues UNTIL he actually appears on a "short course" track. Secondly, sorry to dispell your belief there Petey, but the payback is NOT being affected in any way by the discounted entry fee. The payback figures are the same and will remain the same as they were initially stated BEFORE the announcement of the 50% discount in the entry fee. I am also pretty sure that your reference, "donkeys," of certain individuals isnt appreciated very much either. As the earlier press release stated, NORRS is trying to "give back" to the racers a little bit after recent history showed that they had been kind of taken advantage of.

so you are paying 100% payback on the original entry fee?????? even though you are only collecting half???? basically that would be 200% payback!!!! which would be GREAT and actually may attract more racers........................................but i doubt it...............correct me if im wrong here..................werent you part of the last ripoff????............
