Full Service Off-Road Pit Support
With MAG-7 and Toyo Tires
ANAHEIM, Calif. (Jan. 22, 2015) – Robby Gordon Off-Road, Toyo Tires and Magnificent Seven (MAG-7) have partnered to deliver full on-course race support for 12 of North America’s top off-road events, including all SCORE-International (SCORE) and Best in the Desert (BITD) races beginning with the SCORE San Felipe 250 on Jan. 22-25.
The program will allow all competitors racing on Toyo Tires to have full pit support from MAG-7 including its legendary fuel and tire service with team-specified fuel and choice of Toyo® Open Country® racing tires. At all BITD events Robby Gordon Off-Road will have main pit set up in addition to on-course pit support.
Pit-support is available to all competitors at no charge, with the exception of fuel and tires, provided the teams compete on Toyo Tires.
Participation in the program automatically includes entry into the Toyo Tires contingency program. First-place finishes in Trophy Truck or Class 1400 will earn competitors $3,000 in Toyo Bucks, second-place $2,000 and third-place $1,000. Class 1, Class 1500 or Class 6100 will earn $1,500 in Toyo Bucks for first place, $1,000 for second place and $750 for third.
Toyo Bucks can be redeemed for Toyo racing tires, passenger tires or light truck tires.
Toyo Tires has become the No. 1 performing tire in off-road racing due to significant investments in engineering and research and development specifically targeted toward its off-road tires. Not only have Gordon, B.J. Baldwin and Kyle LeDuc earned off-road championships on Toyo Tires, but Gordon has also raced more than 10,000 miles on Toyo Tires in the rugged Dakar Rally since 2012 without having a single tire failure.

@Dave,I'm not sure what to talk about.The release pretty much covers it.
"Pit-support is available to all competitors at no charge, with the exception of fuel and tires, provided the teams compete on Toyo Tires"... So you supply mounted Toyo tires that you purchased, fuel cans full of the fuel you run and they will haul the tires and fuel you designate to the pits you want them at. Each pit location will be established well in advance of the race and marked at the mile marker it will be at on a map of the course. If you are running Toyo's you receive full MAG 7 support at no charge to you, I have to assume Toyo is picking up the tab. For example full service for the San Felipe 250 is $200, if you're running Toyo's and signed up for the program cost to you is $0. This is similar to what BFG. does. I applaud Toyo this is a great deal, MAG 7 will not only haul your tires and fuel out and back they will also carry spare parts for you and help you make repairs if needed using their well equipped support vehicle's..
