RENO,NV    OCTOBER 5, 2010: VORRA is back to short course wheel-to-wheel racing holding its third short course race this weekend October 9-10, 2010 at the Prairie City OHV Park in Folsom, California.  After the completion of a long desert season, the points battle is close in several of the classes and the excitement and competition will be high in the final two races before awarding the 2010 Season Champions.

The one-mile course is made up of big jumps, hair-pin turns, long straight-aways, and a finish line table top right in front of the grandstands at the Prairie City OHV Park.  Each class will have plenty of chances to win racing 3 heat races consisting of 6 laps each.  The individual class races will be important, but the series points are just as close. Sam Berri in Class 1, Mike Koenig in Class T and Red Team Racing in Class 10 are in respective order, and all are within 50 points of each other.  One race can change everything.

The park will open early on Saturday with tech and contingency in the morning, practice in the afternoon and qualifying starting at 5pm.  Grandstand racing starts Sunday morning at 9:45am after a 9:00am practice session.  There is a break mid-day for lunch from the hot dog cart and the awards ceremony to follow immediately after.

Valley Off Road Racing Association (VORRA) was established in 1975 as a family-oriented organization and is led by current promoter Wes Harbor who believes that “off road racing has its roots in people’s garages”.  VORRA is the only organization to offer both four short course races and four desert races as part of its overall season championship.  Each race draws over 60 racers between multiple classes available for Cars, Trucks, Pilots, ATV, UTV and Trophy Karts.  In 2010 VORRA has added two additional truck classes and a stand alone ATV Race Series.  More information can be found at www.vorra.net
