SCORE Baja 500: Robby Gordon won the 41st Baja 500




US-Motorsport-Star Robby Gordon won the 41st running of the legendary Tecate SCORE Baja 500 last weekend while competing Toyo M/TR-R tires. Gordon finished this year's punishing off-road race, which spanned 432.51-miles, in a time of 8:35:49. a 50.309-mph average speed.

With a remarkable first half of this year in off-road competition, Gordon is firmly leading the points in the 2009 SCORE-International desert series championship. He won the season-opener at the Laughlin Desert Challenge and then finished second at the San Felipe 250. In addition, he finished third overall in the 2009 Dakar rally.

"I am really excited with the way that the Toyo Tires performed in the Baja 500," commented Gordon. "We had zero flat tires and very good wear management. With a tire that performs like this, it is going to make it tough for the competition to beat us."

"We congratulate Robby Gordon and his entire team for a fantastic win in this year's Baja 500," said Steve Hutchinson, vice president of marketing, Toyo Tire USA. "He is truly a legendary driver in the sport of off-road racing, and we are proud that Toyo Tires helped to deliver yet another win."
