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.

    • Kawasaki Mule Pro FXR New Owner

      Just bought a New FXR yesterday after 2 hours of test driving everything from Polaris, Can-Am, Yamaha, and a Honda I chose a FXR for the smooth ride and comfort. The steering seemed to be the best of all of the units I tried. I picked the silver model, wish there was a camo option, but I'm happy with what I choose. I will be reporting on how this unit handles my 40 acre farm. Everything from hauling fire wood, dead deer, to running trails.  Glad I found this site!

    • Howdy from Tejas Off Road Racing Association

      Good morning all,

      My name is Bryant and I'm the co-manager of an off road race series here in Texas that provides off road desert and endurance short course style racing for two classes of UTVs.

      We offer a stock and a Pro UTV class to allow an opportunity for most every UTV owner to try their hand at desert style racing.

      Our courses range from 10 to 100 miles long and races cover multiple laps.

      We look forward to having some of you come race with us!

      Here is a link to our website where rules can be found along with upcoming events.:

      TORRA Our goal is to get people out of the stands and onto the course by providing frequent and affordable racing options.

      Come on out and #makesomedust!
