|USA 2010: Team Toyo USA gained two new members in Offroad-series.|
Team Toyo recently gained two new members in Offroad-Series, Aaron Daugherty, Lucas Oil Off Road Series Pro Lite Unlimited driver; Damen Jefferies, SCORE-International Trophy Truck driver.
Daugherty, from Las Vegas, Nevada, drives the Daugherty Racing 2009 Ford Ranger equipped with Toyo Open Country M/T tires. Powered by a 2.3-liter four cylinder engine pumped full of steroids, his truck competes in short course off-road racing where the equipment is hammered into submission during each event. With the inclusion of Daugherty, Team Toyo now has drivers competing in all of the pro ranks in the truck classes, including Pro 2 Unlimited and Pro 4 Unlimited.
Jefferies, from Apple Valley, California, pilots the Jefferies Racing Chevrolet Silverado Trophy Truck equipped with Open Country M/T-R tires. Powered by a 735-horsepower Chevy race engine, this SCORE International and "Best In The Desert" series past champion will be a force on Toyo tires.
"We are excited to have Aaron Daugherty, Damen Jefferies and Ian Baker join Team Toyo," said Stan Chen, manager of events and motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. "They are accomplished drivers in their sports and their presence will further strenghten the visibility of the Toyo Tires brand in the light truck and sports car segments."
