Toyo Tires continues its support of amateur road racing with VIP track services and an on-site hospitality area at the 25-Hours of Thunderhill, the longest endurance road race in North America. This year’s race will take place Dec. 3-4 at Thunderhill Raceway Park in the rolling Northern California foothills.

Competitors using Toyo Proxes tires will enjoy access to the Toyo Tires hospitality area; that includes meals on Friday (lunch and dinner), Saturday (breakfast, lunch, dinner and a midnight snack), and Sunday (breakfast and lunch).

Registered participants will also receive free mounting and balancing services from Thunderhill AIM Tire on all preorders and via trackside service at Thunderhill Raceway Park from Dec. 2-4. The program applies to racers using the Toyo Proxes RS1 full-slick, the Proxes RR DOT competition, the Proxes R888 and the new Proxes R888R tires in dry conditions; and the Proxes R1R and Proxes RA1, approved for wet use.

"Toyo Tires continues to demonstrate the importance they place on the road racing community," said Jeremy Croiset, NASA Director of Business Development. "This VIP program has quickly become a staple at the biggest pro-am endurance race in North America drawing interest from nearly every team in the paddock and we're thrilled Toyo Tires is hosting it again this year."

This is the 14th year Toyo Tires has been the Official Tire of NASA and the fifth year the company has provided VIP track services to support racers in the 25-Hours of Thunderhill.

"We continue to be ‘all in’ with our unrivaled support of the 25-Hours,” said Marc Sanzenbacher, senior manager, motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “Amateur road racing represents the heart and soul of our Proxes competition line of tires. We are proud to support our loyal race teams in their quest to ‘Survive the 25.’”
