Baja 1000: Glen Greer wins Class 8 of the 40th SCORE Baja 1000.


Glen Greer, driver of the Greer Bros. Racing / Toyo Tires Dodge truck, won Class 8 of the 40th Anniversary SCORE Baja 1000 on off-the-shelf 37X13.50R17 Toyo Open Country M/TR tires. Starting last in his class, Greer passed all of his competitors during an extended mileage race spanning a suspension pounding 1,296 miles across the harsh terrain of the Baja California peninsula.

Greer's win is the second this year in the SCORE-International off-road racing series, as he also won the Class 8 truck category in the SCORE Terrible's Primm 300 in September.

Starting fourth in the trophy truck class, Robby Gordon, driving his Monster Energy / Toyo Tires Chevy truck, hoped to win a second consecutive Baja 1000 for Toyo. Gordon was strong until a miscue during a crucial pit stop left the truck running in the darkness for more than an hour, guided only by a hand held light. During that time, Gordon dropped to seventh in class. Once the problem was resolved, Gordon and co-driver Dale Ebberts made a remarkable charge to finish third in class. Finishing the race in 27 hours 12 minutes and 14 seconds, Gordon's truck was equipped with special 37X13.50R17 Open Country M/T-R tires by Toyo.

Additional Team ToyoT Off-Road drivers that competed in this year's Baja 1000 were Jesse Jones driving his Fabtech / Toyo Tires Ford trophy truck, also Scott Steinberger and David Sykes who teamed up in Steinberger's Fabtech / Toyo Tires / PCI Race Radios Ford trophy truck. Jones finished tenth in class, while Steinberger had to replace a faulty alternator to ultimately cross the finish line at 4:24 in the morning.

"We congratulate Glen Greer on his Class 8 victory during the 2007 Baja 1000 as this demonstrates the durability of our Open Country M/T tires," said Ramses Perez, project manager of events, Toyo Tire (U.S.A.) Corporation. "All of our Toyo-equipped entries demonstrated the abilities of our tires in the most punishing terrain."
