Ron Whitton and Toyo Tires® Score Overall Win at South Point SNORE 250

on 06 October 2009
PRIMM, NEVADA -- Ron Whitton, with co-driver Chas Dana, piloted their Toyo Tires/Whitton Companies/G&R Racing Ford F-150 to the overall win in the South Point SNORE 250 in Primm, Nevada this past weekend. Competing on 39X13.50R17 Toyo Open Country M/T®-R tires, Whitton and Dana finished the desert race course with a time of 04:59:26.343. This race marks the 40th anniversary for Southern Nevada Off-Road Enthusiasts (SNORE), and is the second consecutive SNORE win for Whitton and Dana, having won their class at the KC HiLites Midnight Special in August 

Whitton's race was trouble free except for a header bolt which fell out on the second lap. The team spent nine and a half minutes repairing the bolt in the pits, but made up their deficit to win overall by a margin of 50-seconds. 

"These Toyo Tires are awesome," said Whitton. "Considering we have a 5,000 pound truck running through rocks and holes, they are the greatest things that have happened to us in off-road racing." 

"We are excited to see Ron Whitton and Chas Dana capture a second consecutive win in SNORE off-road racing on Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires," said Stan Chen, manager of events and motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. "This also backs up the overall win by Toyo Tires and Robby Gordon at Primm during the last SCORE desert race."
