CORR 2008: Jeremy McGrath becomes member of Baldwin Racing.



During the 2007 CORR (Championship Off-Road Racing) season, Seven-Time Supercross Champion Jeremy McGrath piloted a Baldwin Racing-prepared, 800+ horsepower Pro 2R class Ford F-150 truck equipped with ToyoR Open Country M/TR-R tires to a podium finish in Lancaster, California. Competing as a "guest driver" at only a few races during last season, he demonstrated his ability to easily transfer his remarkable racing skills to four-wheeled vehicles.

For 2008, McGrath becomes a full-time driver for Baldwin Racing, joining teammate and Pro 4T class driver, Josh Baldwin, both competing on 35X12.50R17 Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires. The team will be a force to reckon with in CORR, as Baldwin also recorded multiple podiums on Toyo tires during the 2007 season.

"I'm excited to be part of the development of Toyo's CORR race tire and of the Open Country M/T. I've put a lot of laps on the new tire during practice and testing with the Toyo Team," said McGrath. "I can't wait for the season to start. Working with their team and engineers, I've seen that they share my drive to put Toyo on top of the box."

"We are excited to have Jeremy McGrath as our newest member of Team Toyo Off-Road," said Stan Chen, manager of events and motorsports for Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. "McGrath will bring his huge fan base to CORR events and will deliver exciting results for Toyo."
