Having teamed up two years ago to give owners of the GR Supra a 12-month membership and a free day of instruction at the track, Toyota and NASA (National Auto Sport Association) have expanded their partnership into 2021 to include the all-new GR 86.

The sports model will hit the Daytona International Speedway on September 16, as the official pace car of the NASA National Championship. The event will kick off with two qualifying races, and the points will set the grid for the final stage on Sunday.

Set to lead each of the 25+ classes, comprising of almost 400 competitors from all over the country, the GR 86 pace car boasts a unique look. The white body was decorated with red and black graphics, and it sports sponsor and pace car decals on certain panels, as previewed by the official sketches released by Toyota.

“It’s really an honor to have Toyota step up with the GR 86 as the pace car of our marquee championship event,” commented the National Auto Sport Association’s Vice President, Jeremy Croiset. “I can’t think of a more perfect car for this, and I know a ton of our competitors will be eyeing it for their next street or track car!”
