CYPRESS, CALIFORNIA – The Toyo® Proxes® R1R™ extreme performance tire was once again on the Street Touring (ST) class champion car at the SCCA® Solo National Championships.

Bill Bounds, co-driver for Team Toyo’s own Tim Smith, piloted Smith’s Proxes R1R-equipped 1989 Honda Civic Si to a championship win at the Lincoln Airpark located in Lincoln, Nebraska. Smith, from Atlanta, Georgia, won the 2008 Solo National Championship and won this year’s SCCA ProSolo® Finale only a few days prior to Bounds.
