NAPA VALLEY, Calif. The National Auto Sport Association (NASA) announced that Toyo Tires will offer a new open tire contingency program to all Enduro classes during the 2013 regional racing season. The new contingency program will be available immediately, and like all Toyo contingencies, it will be available to Enduro entrants competing on the Proxes line of Toyo tires.
This new offering to the expansive Toyo contingency program in 2013 increases the available contingency from Toyo Tires to $10 million in contingency value to NASA racers, the organization said. This new program is available to current Toyo contingency participants in other classes. Product awards are available to competitors in addition to any regional Toyo contingency they may have qualified for during the same day. This program is separate in nature and eligible for contingency awards, even if a competitor may have already qualified for “Toyo Bucks” during the same day.
“When NASA approached us with an opportunity that would allow more competitors to continue showcasing the benefits the Proxes line of Toyo Tires has to offer, we listened up,” said Marc Sanzenbacher, senior manager, Competition Performance Products Division, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “This new contingency offering, unique to the endurance racing classes, makes it even more rewarding for competitors to enjoy the durable, consistent and dependable Proxes line up.”
“This simply goes to show Toyo’s continued dedication to NASA competitors,” said Jeremy Croiset, NASA director of sponsorship. “This new program will allow competitors to also jump into our Enduro classes to enjoy a completely different type of racing and still be eligible to collect from the fantastic contingency offerings Toyo Tires offers to NASA competitors without having to choose between their sprint racing and Enduro finishes. Now you can collect winnings for both on the same day.”
This new contingency program from Toyo Tires will allow competitors using the Toyo Proxes R888, Proxes RA1, or Proxes RR competition tire to compete for $825 in "Toyo Bucks." For this regional open tire contingency program, Toyo will pay out awards of $300, $200, $150, $100 and $75 in the form of "Toyo Bucks" to the top 5 finishers in each regional Enduro race.
