2007-2013

Toyota will be returning to the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) for its seventh season of competition in 2013. Overall, Toyota has been a part of eight NNS championships with JGR earning the series Owner’s Championship four times and Kyle Busch winning the 2009 Driver’s Championship, along with four consecutive Manufacturer’s Championships (2008-2010, 2012).

Toyota entered the NNS in 2007 with two teams, Braun Racing and Michael Waltrip Racing. In July of that year, Braun’s Jason Leffler would make history in earning the first victory for Camry in NASCAR by winning the NNS race at O’Reilly Raceway Park in Indianapolis.

In 2012, Joey Logano earned a series-high nine victories in just 22 races, but was ineligible for the NNS Driver’s Championship since he was a full-time Sprint Cup driver Series competitor.

Toyota drivers finished the 2013 season with 14 wins, 14 pole positions, 56 top-five finishes and 102 top-10 results. While ineligible for the Driver’s Championship as a full-time Sprint Cup competitor, Busch registered one of the most dominant seasons in series history with 12 wins, 21 top-five finishes and 22 top-10 results in 26 series starts. Elliott Sadler (fourth), Kligerman (ninth) and Brian Vickers (10th) finished the season in the top-10 of the NNS point standings.

Overall, Toyota has 88 wins and 80 pole positions since joining series competition in 2007.
