Team Toyo's Robby Gordon Wins at Las Vegas Terrible's Cup II
Las Vegas, Nevada -- Robby Gordon, driving his Red Bull / Toyo Tires® Chevy trophy truck, bested the class at Las Vegas Terrible's Cup II, by winning Saturday's Main Event as well as the Heat Race. The off-road racing event was run on a special short course inside the dirt track at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Las Vegas Terrible's Cup II is part of the SCORE-International Off-Road Racing Series and was held in front of a near capacity grandstand crowd this past Friday and Saturday.
Enjoying a break in his busy NASCAR® schedule, Gordon brought his Toyo Tires® Open Country M/T™-equipped race truck to Las Vegas to enjoy the intense 6-lap, sprint format races. Gordon dominated Saturday's races, finishing 35-seconds ahead of the field in the heat race, and then backing that up with an incredible 23-second margin of victory over SCORE Series Trophy Truck regulars during the Main Event. According to Gordon, "My Toyo Open Country M/T tires delivered all the traction I needed to dominate the main event. That helped to make this weekend a lot of fun."
According to Steve Hutchinson, Senior Director of Marketing, Toyo Tire (U.S.A.) Corporation, "Robby Gordon rocked Las Vegas with his performance this past weekend. Toyo Tires is excited to be a part of his winning effort."
