Toyo Tires Renews as Official Tire of NASA and Announces New Contingencies Payout Plans

For the 17th consecutive year, Toyo Tires has been named the official tire of the National Auto Sport Association.

“We’re proud of our long partnership with Toyo Tires,” said Jeremy Croiset, Vice President, NASA. “We have worked hand-in-glove with Toyo Tires to develop this new 2019 program, which rewards NASA competitors with generous contingency awards while providing unparalleled support throughout the race season.”

Offering the deepest tire contingency payout plan in amateur sports car racing, Toyo Tires and NASA also have streamlined the processes for claiming contingencies. Competitors in spec tire classes now fill out one annual registration form with four photos of each side, and the front and rear of their cars with the required decals, then submit claim forms online as their race season progresses.

After the successful debut of its contingency program for open-tire classes in 2018, Toyo Tires will offer the same prize package to competitors in classes where there is no specified tire again in 2019.

Now, competitors in open-tire classes need only submit the four photos of the front, rear and sides of their cars, plus one of the Toyo Tire mounted on the wheels, and geotag the photos. Claims are done online the same way as competitors in spec tire classes. Geotagging instructions are explained in a link on the claim form.

The Toyo Tires contingency plan also includes a revised payout structure for endurance racing events, with prizes determined by the length of the race and the size of the tire. The newly announced Spec Enduro class has also been added to the list of classes eligible for contingency.

“Offering best-in-class products and a segment-leading contingency plan is part of our long-standing tradition at Toyo Tires,” said Marc Sanzenbacher, senior manager of motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “We want NASA competitors to know that we stand with them as they go for the win and hope this enhanced contingency program provides the support they need.”

These programs are available beginning immediately for NASA competitors. For complete details on the Toyo Tires Contingency Program please visit
