CORR 2006: The 2006 CORR Pro-2 Lucas Oil Nissan Titan.




It’s official: For the 2006 Championship Off-Road Racing season, defending Lucas Oil Pro-2 Series Champion, Carl Renezeder, will campaign a brand new Lucas Oil Nissan Titan. In 2005, Carl dethroned Scott Taylor, the king of Pro-2, with four wins and many great races, securing the title before the final race of the season. In an unprecedented move, Carl sold his championship truck and built a brand new Nissan Titan to defend his title in 2006.

The Nissan Titan R&D truck debuted at the end of 2005 with a variety of drivers, including road racing stand out, Boris Said, at the Nissan Nationals. With an engine program developed by Menards Engine Development and Nissan Motorsports and ultimately built by Menards, the team goes into 2006 with high expectations for another title. The engine is based upon the VK56 Nissan Titan production power plant with a production cylinder block, and production cylinder heads and ignition coils. At 5.6 liters (approximately 340 cubic inches), the race version of this motor produces an estimated 715 horsepower and 500 ft. lbs. of torque.

"We’re eagerly looking forward to the 2006 CORR season," said Ron Stukenberg, Senior Manager of Motorsports Marketing and Operations for Nissan. "With Carl Renezeder driving the Nissan Titan in Pro-2, it’s not a matter if we’ll be successful, but rather when. Carl is a proven champion and the Titan Endurance V-8 race engine is more than capable of winning in the CORR series." During the off-season, under the leadership of Mike Seat, the crew built the brand new Pro-2 from the ground up.

"I’m so excited about this Nissan program," explained Carl. "Not only does it lend huge credibility to our program, but it’s a race package that’s going to be ultra competitive. I have total confidence that our Lucas Oil Nissan will back up our ’05 championship season with multiple wins and another championship. I can’t say enough about the support from Ron Stukenberg at Nissan, and Jim Steven’s expertise at Menards. They’re dedicated to this program, and my guys have built an incredible truck. We’re ready to go racing."

Carl will continue to run in the Pro-4 division as well, where he won a championship in 2003 and the Nissan Nationals in 2005. The first race of the 2006 season will be held in Chula Vista, California (near San Diego) on May 20-21. Television coverage dates on Speed Channel will be announced closer to the start of the season.
