KANSAS CITY, Kan. (Feb. 6, 2014) – Kansas Speedway and Toyota officials have announced the extension of a multi-year partnership between the two companies.


Toyota, which first became the official pace car of Kansas Speedway in 2012, will continue in that role at the track as part of the agreement.


“We are extremely proud of our relationship with Toyota. Many people don’t realize that over the past 50 years, Toyota has built more than 25 million cars and trucks in North America, where they operate 14 manufacturing plants and directly employ nearly 40,000 people. This partnership only strengthens our relationship and gives us an even stronger tie to the Kansas City Toyota dealers,” said Kansas Speedway President Patrick Warren.


“We’re looking forward to continuing to work together with Kansas Speedway,” said Les Unger, Toyota’s national motorsports manager.  “Kansas Speedway is a first-class facility that will provide us with a great opportunity to showcase our Toyota cars and trucks.”


Tickets for Kansas Speedway’s 2014 events, including Kansas Speedway’s first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series night race on May 10, are currently on sale. In addition to the May 10 race, Kansas Speedway hosts a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on May 9, an ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards race on Oct. 3, a NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Oct. 4 and the fourth race of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup on Oct. 5.


To purchase season tickets or single event tickets, call 866-460-RACE (7223) or visit www.kansasspeedway.com.  Season ticket holders receive a TrackPass for each NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race day that allows access to the infield for the Kansas Army National Guard Pre-Race activities, including the pre-race concert and driver introductions.
