Local race driver Sean Corr was honored earlier this week by United Way of Long Island with the Live United Pioneer Vision Award.  Corr, driver of the Empire Racing No. 82 Ford received the award for showcasing the Live United marketing campaign that has been a huge success.

Corr received the award Wednesday at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, New York.  Empire Racing presented their "Live United" show car at the event.

Corr was honored for the exposure he and Empire Racing brought about with their car to increase awareness of the United Way and especially the Military Family Assistance Project, and participation in a number of other programs that benefit local communities.

Corr, from Goshen, New York is a veteran of the Super Dirt Series Pro Stock division, having raced at the Orange County Fair Speedway, the Syracuse dirt mile at the New York State Fairgrounds, Rolling Wheels Raceway, and Lebanon Valley Speedway.

Corr finished a career-best fourth in points in the Pro Stock Super Dirt Series in 2006 and finished fifth in the Pro Stock Super Dirt Series in 2007. He was the 2005 Pro Stock track champion at Orange County, and finished second in Pro Stock track points at Orange County in 2004 and 2006.

In 2011, Corr ran the full ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards schedule and has continued in that series this year.  He began the season at Daytona International Speedway in February with a strong qualifying effort that won him the pole position starting spot for the Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200.
