Nissan Holding its Own--LOORRS

I should have posted this earlier in the year but kept pushing it off...Nissan is doing surprisingly well in the new Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS). Basically the replacement for CORR (which collapsed under its own weight in '08) the LOORRS is one of two short course racing series vying for the top rung. Without factory support and using older trucks Casey Currie, Jon Probst, Jimmy Stephensen and Todd Cuffaro are all performing solidly in their respective Nissans. Out of the first four races Casey Currie has two third place finishes and is 4th overall in the standings, Jimmy Stephensen is 5th in the standings and Todd Cuffaro has one third place finish and is in 6th overall. Right now these races are being filmed and broadcast on a number of channels including Speed and VS. Check them out if you get the chance!!
