Toyota unveils new Supra to run in Xfinity Series in 2019

NASCAR Drive for Diversity at Norfolk State

Friday night's NASCAR Xfinity Series race ended with a sweep, and overtime and two broken hearts.Five laps later than the scheduled 100, Kyle Larson got the victory in the Coca-Cola Firecracker.

The new Supra is going racing, and it's doing it in the last place we expected: NASCAR.

Justin Haley called it a "pretty BS call", but NASCAR said he clearly violated the yellow line rule, and that's why he was not declared the victor of Friday night's Xfinity race at Daytona International Speedway. Unfortunately, that engine option will only be available to drivers in the 2019 NASCAR Xfinity Series.

Toyota has announced that the new Supra sports vehicle will be among the cars that race the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

Statue of Liberty Climber Speaks Out Against Trump Immigration Policy
We understand and share her desire to see the immediate release of children from detention and reunion with their parents. The National Park Service evacuated more than 4,000 visitors off Liberty Island on Wednesday as a precaution.

The good part of all this is that Toyota wouldn't be spending all of this money on stock auto racing if it wasn't planning on doing something big with the Supra, so maybe we'll have a few more surprises in store before it hits production.

"We've had tremendous success working with Calty to develop race cars that match the look, feel and excitement of their showroom counterparts", David Wilson, president of TRD, said in statement. Toyota also campaigns a Tundra in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Toyota has not announced when it will reveal the road-going version of its new Supra. In 2016, Daniel Suarez took the NASCAR Xfinity Drivers' Championship in his No. 19 Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing.

The Supra has previously raced in both America and Japan, where it was a dominant force in Super GT competition and a contender in the IMSA Camel GT Series in the 1980s.

Like Ford's Mustang and Chevy's Camaro in the same series, the Supra you see above shares very little in common with the production Toyota coming soon-F-16s and city buses probably have more in common.
