|SCORE 2011: Toyo Tires and Robby Gordon extend Sponsorship Agreement|
Toyo Tire USA announced a three-year extension of their sponsorship agreement with off-road champion and Team Toyo member Robby Gordon. The 2009 SCORE Champion will continue to represent Toyo Tires and its Open Country products in legendary international races such as the Baja 500, Baja 1000 and Dakar.
Gordon has competed on Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires since 2005. He has delivered several victories for Toyo including the company’s first Baja 1000 win in 2006, the first Dakar stage win in January of 2007 and our first SCORE Overall Championship in 2009. Gordon has also captured numerous SCORE desert racing victories over the last five years and in 2009, he finished third overall in the grueling Dakar.
"I’m excited about expanding this relationship for another three years. Toyo Tires makes a wonderful product. Toyo is the best tire in the business that I have ever been involved with," said Gordon. "And, it is the best tire company as far as making stuff happen and building the best product possible to win races. I can’t say enough about it and how excited I am for the next three years of our relationship."
