Toyo Tires® Supports NASA Road Racers during the 25-Hours of Thunderhill™

With Industry-Leading On-Site Hospitality


CYPRESS, CA – Toyo Tires®, the Official Tire of NASA, returns with its support of the 25-Hours of Thunderhill™ December 5-6 at Thunderhill Raceway Park in Northern California.  Celebrating its 13th year at the Official Tire of NASA, Toyo Tires will once again provide an industry-leading on-site hospitality program for qualified competitors using Toyo® Proxes® tires. 


The 25-Hours of Thunderhill is held annually by the National Auto Sport Association (NASA) and is considered the longest endurance road race in North America.  Racers travel from around the continent to compete in this prestigious event.


This will be the fourth consecutive year that Toyo Tires will have its VIP rig on-site to provide free meals at the track on Friday through Sunday.  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 December 4-6.


"The support Toyo Tires gives competitors at the NASA 25 hours of Thunderhill presented by Hawk Performance is unmatched," said Jeremy Croiset, NASA's Director of Business Development. "The race has quickly grown to become the preeminent pro-am endurance race in North America.  It is fantastic to have Toyo on board again this year to support competitors who choose the Toyo Tires brand, as they seem to really appreciate it."

“We are proud to offer a VIP support program for competitors using Toyo tires,” said Marc Sanzenbacher, senior manager, motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp.  “We recognize the extraordinary effort that goes into “Surviving the 25” and Toyo Tires is committed to helping make the 25-Hours of Thunderhill one of the most memorable and enjoyable road racing events each year.”


The program applies to racers using the Toyo Proxes® RS1™ full-slick, the Proxes® RR DOT competition, and the Proxes® R888™ tire in dry conditions; while the Proxes® R1R™ and Proxes® RA1™ are approved for wet use.
