CYPRESS, CA – Toyo Tire U.S.A Corp. announces that Gustavo (Tavo) Vildósola, Jr. is the newest member of Team Toyo® Off-Road and its championship-winning drivers. Vildósola grew up in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico; and began desert racing in 2000. Competing in the SCORE-International® Off-Road Racing series, he drove for the first-ever Mexican team to win the 2010 Baja 1000 overall.
“I am very excited to be joining such a class organization with a tradition of winning and a commitment to excellence,” said Vildósola. “I am confident that Vildósola Racing will continue our winning tradition with Toyo Tires.”
Making for a great start to his relationship with Toyo Tires, Vildósola won both the overall and Class 1400 during last weekend’s Henderson 250 Best In The Desert off-road race in Southern Nevada.
“We ran a clean, smart race on Saturday with no downtime. The truck ran great all evening and our new Toyo tires performed above expectations,” said Vildósola. “They provided superb drivability and lead us to our first victory with Toyo Tires.”
