CORR 2006: Nissan continues contingency program

Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) has announced that more than $125,000 will be available to Nissan, Datsun and Infiniti professional and amateur racers under its 2006 Contingency Awards Program. The Contingency Awards Program includes seven sanctioning bodies or competition series: Championship Off-Road Racing (CORR), Sports Car Club of America (SCCA), Grand Am Cup, Grand Am Rolex Series, National Hot Rod Association (NHRA), National Auto Sport Association (NASA) and the World Drift Championship.

Nissan's 2006 Contingency Awards Program covers both Nissan and Datsun badged cars and trucks, as well as the Infiniti G35. Award-eligible drivers or teams must be registered with Nissan Motorsports and must display official current "Nissan" logo and "NISMO" (Nissan Motorsports, International) die-cuts on designated areas of the car or truck during all race events. The drivers' race suits must also display a current Nissan patch on the upper chest.

"We're looking forward to another highly competitive year in all Motorsports venues, including the Sports Car Club of America and Championship Off-Road Racing," said Nissan Motorsports Marketing and Operations Senior Manager Ron Stukenberg. "Last season, Nissan increased its record total of SCCA National Runoffs National Championships to 87, well ahead of every other manufacturer, and in CORR in 2005, both Nissan and driver Chad Hord narrowly missed bringing home season championship titles in the Pro-Lite Division."

Contingency awards for CORR, arguably the largest and most watched off-road racing series in North America, range from $250 all the way up to $5,000 for the season's Driver's Champion.
