BITD 2008: Desert specialist Scott Kincaid joins Team Toyo Off-Road.

Desert off-road racing specialists, Scott Kincaid and Jeff Quinn along with co-driver Gary Kincaid, have become the newest members of Team Toyo Off-Road. Piloting their blue number 57 Kincaid Racing Ford truck in both the SCORE-International "Trophy Truck" and Best In The Desert "Trick Truck" classes, the team relies on 37x13.5R17 Toyo Open Country M/TR-R tires to keep them up front.

Kincaid's truck is unique as it is powered by a big block 548-cubic inch engine built by his brother, Gary Kincaid of Kincaid Racing Engines. Producing nearly 1,000-horsepower, this monster engine puts extra strain on everything from the transmission down to the rubber on the ground in order to propel this 6,800 lb. truck.

"Before being sponsored by Toyo, we initially bought our Open Country M/T tires because we wanted the best," said Kincaid. "During the recent Parker 425 race, the tires were incredible with no flats. We ran through sand, whoops and rocks and the tires didn't even look cut-up, they looked great. They are the perfect match-up for our team."

During the recent Best In The Desert series Bluewater Resort & Casino Parker 425, the team displayed the potential for an overall win as their Open Country M/T-R equipped truck reached a 20-mph higher top speed than when testing with other tire brands. An undersized fuel cell and a late decision to change the length of the course by the event organizers resulted in the truck running out of fuel on course during the first lap. After that setback, the team was still able to power to a fourth in class finish and fifth place overall. Prior to that event, the team competed in the La Carrera 200 and took first overall on their Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires.

"We welcome Scott Kincaid as our newest member of Team Toyo," said Stan Chen, manager of events and motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. "We continue to grow the presence of Team Toyo in desert racing with strong drivers such as Kincaid, Robby Gordon and the LeDucs, and the Open Country M/T tires are helping them to finish ahead of the competition."
