The 2012 Toyota Camry has just been revealed, and already they’ve announced the car is chosen to pace next year’s DAYTONA 500 race.

The Camry has been the best selling car in America for 13 of the past 14 years with over 9 million units sold. So Toyota thought the best way to introduce it to the public, is by using America’s favorite motorsport, at Daytona in ‘The Great American Race,’ Feb. 26, 2012. The race annually kicks-off the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.

Previous pace car jobs for Toyota Camry include Auto Club Speedway of Southern CaliforniaSM, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway, Dover (Del.) International Speedway, California’s Infineon Raceway, Kansas Speedway, Martinsville (Va.) Speedway, Nashville Superspeedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Phoenix International Raceway, Richmond (Va.) International Raceway, Wisconsin’s Road America and Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International.

“We’re thrilled to be able to feature the new Camry in Daytona at the season’s biggest race,” said Ed Laukes, TMS corporate manager of motorsports marketing. “We think the DAYTONA 500 is the perfect place to showcase the all-new Toyota Camry — which will go on sale this fall. We knew when the opportunity arose to partner together with Daytona that it would be an extraordinary way to highlight our new Camry, as well as reinforce Toyota’s commitment to NASCAR and its fans.”
