Would replace the Camry in the Xfinity Series
“This story is purely speculation and we have not confirmed or announced anything at this time. We have no further comment.”
The Supra would be introduced in the second-tier Xfinity Series. However, much like Ford did with its Mustang and Chevrolet did with the Camaro, both in 2015, it shouldn’t be long before the Supra steps up to the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series. Chevrolet is in its first season with the Camaro in the Cup; Ford announced earlier this year that the Mustang will race in the Cup Series starting in 2019.
The Supra was sold in the U.S. until 1998; Toyota introduced a Supra race car concept in Geneva in March and has confirmed rumors that a production model will be coming. Under NASCAR’s rules, a production model will have to be available before it can be approved to race.
