Nissans, Nissans everywhere...

At least it seemed that way for one recent day. Taking advantage of a lull in the CORR (Championship Off Road Racing schedule caused by the cancellation of its scheduled October race in Primm, NV and concerns in regards to the health of the series overall, former motocross superstar Ricky Johnson held what is hoped to be the first of many events at the Perris Auto Speedway in Perris, CA( Using a more condensed format, the event was able to run races for eight different classes including the Nissan dominated GP (Pro) Lite class. Of the five entrants in this class, ALL FIVE drove Nissan powered trucks, including big time names like Casey Currie, Brian Deegan and Rhys Millen. Casey Currie took the checkered flag (not surprisingly) with Brian Deegan taking second. This bodes well for Nissan's future in GP/Pro Lite classes as though they remain without full factory support, it shows that Nissan engines can be and affordable and competitive option.
