Toyota Motor Sales, USA
In its 35th year of Grand Prix title 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.
Now among the largest supporters of motorsports in the U.S., both competitively and through sponsorships, Toyota seeks new challenges - and, hopefully, new triumphs - on a variety of fronts in the new millennium. 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 nearly 40 years ago!
