Jim Baldwin Relinquishes Operations of

Championship Off Road Racing

Newport Beach, CA (December 5, 2008)--Today, CORR owner Jim Baldwin has announced that he is stepping down as CEO of Championship Off Road Racing. While retaining ownership, Mr. Baldwin will relinquish control of the day to day operations and management of the off road racing series and elevate Cissy Baldwin to CEO. PMF Event Services Executive Producer, Jason Markham, will be also joining Cissy Baldwin on the management team.

In just under four years since purchasing CORR, Mr. Baldwin brought short course off road racing to national level. Despite difficulties brought on by the current economic recession, CORR has experienced triple digit growth in all aspects including spectator attendance, race participants, national awareness, and television viewers.

Mr. Baldwin made the following statement:

"Long before purchasing CORR in 2005, off road racing has been my passion and my pride. My family and I have had an amazing experience both in off road racing and being so deeply involved in the sport. Seeing the potential, I purchased CORR with the goal of developing a national presence. In the past few years, we have seen our efforts pay off as CORR and short course racing entered into the national motor sports spotlight. Recently I have experienced challenges but I have no doubt that CORR has the potential to succeed. Cissy Baldwin has clearly demonstrated her abilities and I have full faith and confidence that she will steer CORR to the next level. It is with a heavy heart, with the best interest in the future of CORR and short course racing, that I must now step aside from managing the operations of the series to empower the CORR management team to carry on this vision."

As Mr. Baldwin hands over the reins of the series he will devote his efforts to his real estate business and other business interests that have become his primary focus. While it remains the premier short course racing series in the nation, the CORR team is continuing to develop a revised plan for the 2009 season that will build upon the progress that has been developed under Mr. Baldwin's leadership.

Championship Off Road Racingâ„¢ brings high action, four wheel motorsports including two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive trucks to the closed course off road arena.

      Hey guys, just to give you a bit of back story here first.  I used to ride big mud machines and SxS in the swamp.  Went through a divorce and lost almost everything.  What I got to keep was a snowmobile that I had for years and never rode anymore and wasn’t worth much to me so I decided to try trading it for more or less any UTV/SxS I could.  Well that landed me here, I just traded it for a 2008 Kandi KD650 which is a direct clone of the Joyner Commando 650.  The machine is in rough shape but runs and drives.  I have a few things to repair on it. (Seized choke cable, seized Ignition, and needs a voltage regulator). Going to to princess auto today to pick up a choke cable, and ignition, I have a voltage regulator from an old project that I will wire in.  
      The only thing I am wondering about is the rear end.  The guy I traded it for told me only one rear tire will spin when in 2 wd.  Is that the way all of these are is do  I need to rip it apart.  Also is there any aftermarket support for rear axles or axles that will fit that can be cut down and sleeved and rewelded.  Buddy there did some rednecking with a Polaris axle but not sure how strong it is.

      Hello-
       
      New to the forum so luckily there is some help out there lol. Recently bought a 2008 Joyner 1600cc sand viper and loving it. Took it out and had a little accident with a tree stump lol. The stump hit directly on my passenger side tie rod end and broke the heim joint that connects the tie rod end to the wheel. Does anyone know the size of the adjustable heim joint so I can order one? I am having a hard time sourcing one quickly. I am also guessing since it is an outter tie rod end, that it is LH pitched rather than RH? thanks for any help anyone can provide. This is again for the outter tie rod end heim joint that snapped. Thanks

      New to the UTV world. Just bought a new Hisun sector 750 with cab and heater. Have not even gotten it dirty yet. I realize these machines take a lot of flack from owners of more name brand machines, but after ready lots of reviews and I decided that they are a good machine in my opinion. Working on modifying a trailer to haul it to the mountains right now.

      Just wanted to say hi. I'm very thankful for this forum, because I recently purchased a 2012 Cub Cadet Volunteer.  I need to be able to maintain it myself instead of having a shop come and get it. The closest shop is about 50 miles away. I appreciate any and all help and advice! 
      I hope I don't wear out my welcome here.
