Red Bull And Toyota Sign New Agreement
Red Bull Racing Team announced Wednesday that it has extended its partnership with Toyota in the Sprint Cup Series.
“Our partnership with Toyota has been a critical element to the success of Red Bull Racing Team,” said Jay Frye, RBRT vice president and general manager. “Both Red Bull Racing Team and Toyota share a common goal of being a championship-contending team. Toyota has supplied the engine and technical support we need to get our teams into victory lane and now the Chase for the Championship. We look forward to the future with Toyota.”
Toyota has been a part of the team’s success as both an engine supplier and manufacturer. Most recently, No. 83 driver Brian Vickers secured Red Bull Racing Team a spot in this season’s Chase, marking the first Toyota team to make the Chase using TRD- built motors. Vickers also drove a Red Bull Camry to victory for the first time in August at Michigan.
“We look forward to continuing our relationship with Red Bull Racing Team – a member of our ‘freshman class’ in 2007 when Toyota joined the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series as a
manufacturer,” said Lee White, president and general manager for Toyota Racing
Development, U.S.A. “We are extremely proud of the team’s and Brian’s accomplishments, including their first victory and qualifying for the Chase.”No Comment
