Toyota Camry Hybrid to make NASCAR history

Torrance, CA. -- When a Toyota Camry Hybrid leads the 43-car starting field to the green flag for the 50th running of the Coca-Cola 600 on May 24th at Lowe's Motor Speedway (LMS) in Concord, N.C., it will mark the first time in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) history a hybrid vehicle will serve as the 'official' pace car for an entire race. "Toyota is the leading seller of hybrids in the U.S. with more than a million on the road, so it's appropriate the Camry Hybrid is the first to pace a NASCAR race from start to finish," said Ed Laukes, corporate motorsports marketing manager, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. (TMS). "It's a tribute to the torque and other performance characteristics of the Camry Hybrid that allows it to meet NASCAR's requirements for pacing the longest race of the season."
