2019 Toyo Tires Contingency Program Decal Guidelines - SPEC TIRE Classes Only

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Here is where you will find the 2019 Toyo Tires Contingency Program Decal Guidelines. These guidelines are for SPEC TIRE CLASSES ONLY. Open classes are not required to follow these decal guidelines.

To be eligible for the Toyo Tires Contingency Program you must properly display decals on your vehicle as shown and register once a year for the program.

Yearly Contingency Registration for Spec Tire classes can be found HERE

IMPORTANT!!!

Decal placements for the Toyo Tires Contingency Program during the 2019 race season will not be mandatory. 

Decal placements will be enforced for drivers planning to participate at the NASA National Championships at Mid Ohio September 18-22, 2019

Beginning in the 2020 Race Season proper placements of Toyo Decals will be strictly enforced for ALL NASA Competitors and vehicles. Competitors not in compliance will result in the denial of your claim and anyone caught cheating will be permanently banned from the program. 

Although not required, we strongly suggest you follow the decal guidelines for the 2019 Race Season.

The 944 depicted is the 944Turbo with a completely different bumper configuration than the base normally aspirated 944 that the 944Spec class uses. The side and rear decal placement should be okay, but the front bumper decal placement is going to be an issue for those racers that retain the rubber bumperettes that come from the factory on the base model metal bumper bars. There is a space between them designed to fit the license plate, but it is too narrow to fit the sticker in one line as depicted. This may require racers to split the Toyo and Tires up into two lines unless they are allowed to place the decal just above the front bumper in the space between the headlights and below the Porsche crest emblem.

That's a great point and thanks for bringing it up! We will discuss with Toyo and see if they will allow putting the decal below the Porsche Emblem

Thanks!

Not symmetrical. What’s wrong with the windshield and back windshield of an e30? They are basically vertical. Having them off center looks like crap.

These are the requirements made final by Toyo in order to be eligible for the Spec Tire contingency program. Since these decal requirements are NOT mandatory for the 2019 Race Season, we still suggest that competitors follow the decals guidelines for this year and if there a widespread issue that is brought to our attention we will be more than happy to address them. 

This thread will always contain the latest and most up to date information regarding the decal placements

I don't quite understand why we can't make the logo look better.  If we have custom colored and/or shadowed numbers where we recreate the Toyo Logo exactly as it is with the same font and size to make the car look good/uniform we don't get our contingencies?  So we have to use blue, black or white....period?  Wish this would have been announced and have to be found out before I paid for all those custom graphics.

Correct. For the Spec tire classes, Toyo requires these placements and colors to be eligible for contingency. The reason for this is to preserve the branding and Image Toyo Tires wants in their marketing materials and to make sure that drivers who are taking advantage of a program to represent the brand as Toyo sees fit. This is common practice in any industry where a company offers consumers free or discounted products.

We have seen in the past competitors run black decals on a black car effectively hiding the brand and claiming contingency without properly displaying the decals for Toyo to use in their marketing materials. These requirements are designed to mitigate that. 

Also, we understand that competitors may have already ordered custom decals during the offseason which is why these requirements WILL NOT be enforced for 2019. We will start enforcing the requirements at 2019 NASA Championship Event at Mid Ohio and beginning of the 2020 Race Season.

few questions: 1. Does the toyo decal need to be centered on the front or rear as depicted? or can it be offset to the side a little do to airdam/front radiator opening?  2. Toyo open tire says take (5) pictures, whats the 5th pic of?  3.  I run 'Philstireservice" decals, is that considered 'no other tire vendor' and not allowed per toyo?

1. The Toyo Decal needs to be centered as depicted. 

2. The 5th photo requirement for the Open Tire Class is a clear photo of the required Toyo tire mounted on the wheel. 

3. We will reach out to Toyo and get verification and reach back out to you 

 

Thanks!

For an open class (Enduro racing) car, are colors free provided they are contrasting and clearly visible?  Also, what are the dimensions for those of us cutting our own?

For 2019 the open class decal requirements are open in terms of color. You will still need to place them on each side and on the front and rear of the vehicle. 

Regarding dimensions, they should be no smaller than the Official Toyo Decals that you can get at every event.

They must be the same size or larger as the Offical Toyo Decals available at any NASA event.

What about open tire contingency for Nationals? What are the decal placement requirements? Do the decals provided at the event meet specifications? Can there be other tire or tire distributer decals on the car? Is there a particular tire or size that does or does not provide contingency?

Hi Ken, 

To Answer Your Questions:

  1. These decal placement requirements are for Spec Classes only.
  2. Open Tire Classes require that decals must be prominently placed on each side and on the front and rear of the vehicle. 
  3. The Decals provided at the event are directly from Toyo and meet requirements. 
  4. No other tire vendor decal or patches may be displayed on the vehicle or person.
  5. Competitors must be using Toyo Proxes RR or R888 or R888R or R1R or RS1 or RA1 (wet) competition tire. Please see Payout Schedule HERE for details on what tire sizes are eleigible for contingency prizes. 

For full details on the Toyo Tires Contingency Program please see the program page - https://prizes.drivenasa.com/toyo-tires-contingency-program/

Let us know if you have any more questions

Thanks!

Aldrin,

There are a couple of potential issues with this for CMC: The 3rd gen Camaro, 3rd gen Firebird, 4th gen Firebird, and SN95 Mustang (this may not be an issue as it is very similar to the Edge that is shown) are not depicted with respect to sticker placement. A suggestion for the 4th gen Camaros would be to put the rear decal up on the decklid just above the filler panel. It fits nicely there and leaves sufficient room for all the other necessary contingency/NASA stickers and a tow hook. If my terrible memory doesn't let me down this weekend, we'll have a look at what works on the 4th gen Firebird, 3rd gen Camaro, and SN95. I really hope the sticker placements are not set in stone and I must say it would have been nice to have included the respective series directors in the decision process of determining decal placement. I completely understand Toyo's desire to enforce standardization, but I feel like us class directors were left out of the loop and we definitely could have helped this process go more smoothly with our down in the weeds input .

Hey Dustin, 

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. if you can send me examples on decals placements that work for the CMC guys I can bring that to the discussion table with Toyo and revise the decal requirements for the 2020 Race Season. The main thing for these decal requirements is for consistency of placement across the spec classes as well as maximum visibility for Toyo. 

We definitely appreciate your input and we will make sure to discuss this with Toyo!

Feel free to DM me if you want to discuss further. 

Thanks!
