Toyo Tire (U.S.A.) Corp. is the title sponsor of the NHRA Toyo Tires Nationals, to be held Sept. 15-18 at Maple Grove Raceway. Maple Grove is the 19th stop on the twenty-three race NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series.

"Toyo Tires has supported amateur and professional drag racing for a number of years," says Travis Roffler, Toyo's senior director of marketing. In addition to the POWERade series, Toyo has played a major role in sponsoring the NHRA Xplod Sport Compact Racing Series, and sponsors several NHRA race drivers as part of Team Toyo.

The company also founded "Take It To The Track," a public awareness program that provides a safe alternative to the popular lifestyle of illegal street racing.

Situated near Reading, Pa., the 42-year-old Maple Grove quarter-mile track is recognized as one of the premier drag racing facilities in the country.
