Toyota Motor Sales, USA
In its 34th year of Grand Prix sponsorship, Toyota has become one of the largest sponsors in all of motorsports, as well as one of the most successful programs in U. S. racing.

Toyota Racing Development (TRD), based in Costa Mesa, plays a major role in developing and building racing engines. Toyota continues to compete in off-road racing, NASCAR and, of course, remains title sponsor of the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, where its U.S. motorsports involvement began over 30 years ago!
