In the 2024 King of the Hammers Toyo Tires Desert Challenge, held in Johnson Valley, California, Christopher Polvoorde won, driving his new 1000 Optima Batteries / Toyo Tires / Ford Raptor. Polvoorde completed the race, which covers 182 kilometers over a variety of terrain including rocky and high-speed terrain, in a time of three hours, 16 minutes and 58 seconds. This was his first win this year and second in the Toyo Tires Desert Challenge in the last three years. He achieved this from a low start in the Unlimited Race on Sunday. Polvoorde's success in the T1 class was attributed in part to the use of Toyo Open Country M/TR tires.

Additionally, Rodrigo Ampudia took first place in the B3 UTV Pro Stock Turbo class, clocking in at 3 hours, 56 minutes and 55 seconds. Ampudia drove a Can-Am / Monster Energy / Toyo Tires UTV, fitted with off-the-shelf Toyo Open Country SxS tires. These tires are available to the public and are designed for trail vehicles, incorporating features from the Open Country M/TR tires.

Both Polvoorde and Ampudia expressed satisfaction with their cars and the performance of their Toyo tires in navigating the varied and challenging race conditions. Stan Chen, senior manager of events, sponsorships, and motorsports at Toyo Tire USA Corp., highlighted the achievement of winning in two competitive classes with different tire models as an indication of Toyo Tires' championship quality.
