During Friday’s qualifying, Gordon topped the charts with a time of 3:02.466 for an average speed of 59.19-mph. Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires were also on the truck of the second fastest qualifier, BJ Baldwin. Baldwin drove the #1 Monster Energy/Toyo Tires Chevy Silverado class 1400 Trick Truck to a time of 3:03.353 at 58.90-mph.

During Saturday and Sunday’s three-lap, 26-mile per lap races; Gordon won overall each day with more than a two-minute margin of victory. His cumulative time for the race was a 2:42:52, beating the second overall finisher by more than 4.5 minutes. BJ Baldwin finished second in class 1400 and fifth overall with a cumulative time of 02:52:02.

“The Bluewater Challenge was an awesome weekend for us. We went there and did the three things we wanted to do, basically shut the weekend out. We qualified the fastest, beating all the buggies and the trophy trucks. We won Saturday’s race which was three minutes faster than the trophy truck times… Sunday’s race we came back and beat them by four minutes. It was a big day for us,” said Gordon. “Everybody at RPM, they did a great job. Thanks to Clyde Stacy and his team for giving me the opportunity, Geiser Brothers for a good race truck, and the best tires in the business Toyo Tires… I couldn’t have done it without them.”

During the 2012 Best In The Desert racing season, Toyo Tires equipped vehicles have won overall at all but one race in the series. In February, Robby Gordon won the Bluewater Resort & Casino Parker "425" overall. In March, he won overall in the Mint 400. In May, BJ Baldwin won the Canidae Tap It Silver State "300" overall, while Robby Gordon won his class and placed third overall. During the Vegas to Reno race in August, Robby Gordon carried the Toyo Tires name to second overall. This weekend’s BlueWater Desert Challenge was yet another overall victory for Robby Gordon and Toyo Tires.

“Robby Gordon and Toyo Tires have had an incredible run in this year’s Best In The Desert off-road racing series,” said Stan Chen, manager of events and motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “With both Robby and BJ Baldwin competing in the series, our Open Country M/T-R tires have won nearly every race of the season. We wish to thank both drivers for their driven performance, and wish to congratulate Robby Gordon on yet another great victory this past weekend.”
