Sean Corr made his racing debut in 1999 at Orange County Fair Speedway (OCFS) in Middletown, New York competing in the DIRTcar Series. As the 1999 season served as a learning curve for the then 15-year-old Goshen, New York native, Corr returned to competition in 2000 and was crowned Rookie of the year.

The 2001 racing season brought great success, as he produced a number of wins en route to the Pure Stock Division Championship. Over the next seven years Corr earned the Sportsmanship of the year award in 2003, the Expert Pro Stock Championship in 2005, with more than 30 top-five finishes and an impressive 18 career wins. He also added the Super DIRT Week Series to his resume in 2006 competing at New York Fair Speedway in Syracuse, New York. Earning Rookie of the Year honors at NYFS and the Hard Charger Award, Corr also earned his second Sportsmanship of the year award at OCFS and was runner-up in championship point standings.

In 2007 Corr began taking a different approach and participated as a Speed Tech Driving School instructor at tracks such as Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, Richmond (Va.) International Raceway, Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway, Kentucky Speedway and the legendary Rockingham (N.C.) Speedway. When not serving as an instructor, he returned to the dirt track competition at OCFS and earned his third Sportsmanship of the Year Award.  In 2008 Corr decided to return to his racing roots by competing at New York Fair Speedway earning the Super DIRT Week Series Pro Stock Champion honors.

2009 proved to be the biggest leap for Corr’s auto racing career where he propelled himself to the ever growing ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards. Corr made the transition from dirt to asphalt look easy by propelling to three top-15 finishes in four starts. Corr also maneuvered starts at some of ARCA’s pivotal tracks of Chicagoland Speedway and Kentucky Speedway respectively.

In 2010, Corr and his Empire Racing team led by Excel Motorsports’ John Bellesfield increased from a four race schedule to a six race schedule. Despite delivering fast cars, lady luck would bit the team at Texas Motor Speedway and Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, while running in the top-seven respectively. Still, the newly founded stock car team would be able to produce a strong 14th place finish in the season-opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. Additional top-20 outings included a career-best 12th at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway after starting 18th. Corr also negotiated an 18th place finish at Michigan International Speedway and a 16th at the second and final Pocono (Pa.) Raceway event after nailing his first top-10 qualifying run of eighth.

In 2011, Corr accomplished what most ARCA drivers did not do this year.  Sean finished all 19 races with career best finishes in the ARCA series with a 7th place finish in Madison and a 9th place finish in Iowa.  He also had four 11th place finishes at Pocono Raceway twice, Duquoin and Springfield.  Corr finished 9th in the points race for ARCA.  He also took 2nd place for Rookie of the Year and finished 93.43% of all laps raced in 2011.

Vying to give Corr the full opportunity at winning races in a stock-car, Empire Racing LLC will run the full ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards schedule this year (2012) under the guidance of crew chief Ben Leslie and team manager John Bellesfield.

When not on the racetrack, Corr likes to help out on his family's farm, restore and collect antique automobiles and vacation in Daytona Beach, Florida.
