The National Off Road Racing Series (NORRS)

The National Off Road Racing Series (NORRS) is proud to announce it will be holding its short course racing series in Southern California. With seven race weekends scheduled for 2009 and 15 races ending in a world class championship, the NORRS series will be the premiere short course off road racing experience.

“We are happy to be able to provide affordable racing for both race teams and spectators for our upcoming season that will be a great experience for all, said COO Wessly Carr. This series will provide the side by side racing action that fans of short course racing want to see and also provide a professional racing experience for teams across the US. Being backed by a non-biased entertainment company allows us to invite racers across the United States and into Mexico for exciting racing action. For the fans it will be affordable even in this economy so that the average family can enjoy a full day of entertainment and racing.”

The series will be primarily held in San Diego, California, due to its mild weather and relatively easy travel time from anywhere in Southern California. NORRS is currently developing a track that features a 1200-foot straight, banked turns, whoops, S-turns and other great features. Located at the north end of San Diego it will be conveniently accessible for Southern California fans and drivers.

We will listen to the drivers, because without them we have no race series!
