CORR 2007: Protruck-Team Baldwin Racing joins Team Toyo.

Toyo Tires announced today it has signed Baldwin Racing as a member of Team ToyoT Off-Road. Baldwin Racing has competed professionally for more than ten years, currently fielding 800-horsepower Pro 2T and Pro 4T Ford trucks in the CORR (Championship Off-Road Racing) short course series. Beginning this week in Antelope Valley, California, all of the team's CORR race trucks and pre-runners will be equipped with Toyo's Open Country M/TT tires featuring a special Version 2 competition compound and construction that has proven successful in both short course and endurance off-road competition.

"Toyo Tires is proud to add Baldwin Racing to Team Toyo Off-Road as we continue to build a strong foundation of winners for our off-road competition program," said Stan Chen, manager of events and motorsports, Toyo Tire (U.S.A.) Corporation, "This further demonstrates Toyo's commitment to the research and development of off-road products which ultimately benefits the consumer through the lessons we learn in racing."

This represents the third year of off-road competition for Toyo Tires, the second year using specially developed product specifically for race trucks. "Toyo Tires has accomplished some incredible things in off road racing in a very short period of time," said Josh Baldwin, driver for Baldwin Racing. "Having seen how far they have come with drivers like Rick Huseman and Kyle LeDuc in CORR and then with Robby Gordon's win in the SCORE Baja 1000, we know that Toyo shares Baldwin Racing's commitment to winning."

Thirty year old Baldwin of Laguna Beach, California supplies a lot of talent while competing in the Pro 4 (4 wheel drive) class. Baldwin was the 2005 CORR Rookie of the Year and CORR Governor's Cup Winner during the same season. Competing in the Pro 2 class for Baldwin Racing is motorcycle and off-road legend, Ricky Johnson from San Diego, California. Forty-three year old Johnson was the Pro 2 Class Champion in 1998 and both a two-time Supercross and five-time outdoor motocross champion. Johnson also competed in the NASCARR Craftsmen Truck Series; the ASA Pike's Peak Hillclimb, was 1999 ASA Stock Car Rookie of the Year and provided color commentary for CORR television broadcasts.

In addition to the tires, Toyo will be included on all CORR race trucks, pre-run trucks, big rigs, driving suits and crew shirts as part of an entirely new look for Baldwin Racing. To learn more about Baldwin Racing, log on to their web site at [ ].
