Kentucky Speedway announced on Monday afternoon that Toyota will become the “Official Vehicle of Kentucky Speedway.”

The announcement was made at the Toyota plant in Georgetown.

The partnership will include a “range of integrated elements that will create exposure for the brand using the venue’s traditional, digital and social promotional platforms.”

Toyota has found plenty of success at the track, winning three of the facility’s six Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races.

Kentucky Speedway general manager Mark Simendinger shared his thoughts on how the whole partnership came together:
