In the end, Toyo Proxes R1R shod cars took the top positions in several classes, including first through seventh in ST, first and third in STL, first and second in STS, and first and third in STR. That represents four wins out of five classes where Proxes R1R equipped cars were entered.

"The Proxes R1R continues to be the tire of choice for winning drivers in the street touring classes of SCCA Solo," said Stan Chen, manager of events and motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp.
