Toyota vehicles were prominent all weekend long at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, sweeping NASCAR's two biggest events.
Toyotas Camrys visited New Hampshire Motor Speedway's Victory Lane twice over the weekend, winning both the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and the NASCAR Nationwide Series races. Toyota also led the field for both races with its 2010 Camry Hybrid pace car.
Rookie Joey Logano's No. 20 Home Depot Toyota Camry climbed from the back of the pack to win the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 on Sunday. With the victory, Logano became the youngest winner in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series history. The Home Depot Camry led the final 10 laps in a rain-shortened race, recovering from left-side damage procured from an earlier caution. The win is Toyota's fifth of the season.
In the NASCAR Nationwide Series Camping World RV Sales 200 presented by Turtle Wax, Kyle Busch drove his No. 18 Z-Line Designs Toyota Camry to the checkered flag. The race was a duel between two Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota teammates, Busch and Logano.
Logano's No. 20 GameStop/Singularity Camry also started from the pole position for the Camping World RV Sales 200 presented by Turtle Wax, posting a qualifying speed of 128.902 mph and a lap of 29.548 seconds.
But it wasn't all about going fast to lead the pack for Toyota. The 2010 Camry Hybrid was the official pace car for the weekend's events in Loudon. It became the first Hybrid car to pace a race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
A pole position and two victories in NASCAR's two biggest events, along with the introduction of the Hybrid pace car era, rounded out a very positive weekend for Toyota at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
