Red Bull Racing extends partnership with Toyota Red Bull Racing has extended its partnership with Toyota in the Sprint Cup Series. The agreement continues a three-year relationship where Toyota has supported Red Bull Racing Team's progression from a start-up organization to a berth in the championship-deciding Chase.
"Our partnership with Toyota has been a critical element to the success of Red Bull Racing," said Jay Frye, RBR vice president and general manager. "Both Red Bull Racing and Toyota share a common goal of being a championship-contending team.
"Toyota has supplied the engine and technical support we need to get our teams into Victory Lane and now the Chase. We look forward to the future with Toyota."
Red Bull sponsors the No. 82 driven by Scott Speed and the No. 83 driven by Brian Vickers. Vickers qualified for the Chase for the first time following last week's race at Richmond. Vickers also picked up the first win for Red Bull Racing at Michigan earlier this year at Michigan.
Red Bull Racing is the first Toyota team to make the Chase using TRD-built motors.
"We look forward to continuing our relationship with Red Bull Racing -- a member of our 'freshman class' in 2007 when Toyota joined the Cup Series as a manufacturer," said Lee White, president and general manager for Toyota Racing Development, U.S.A. "We are extremely proud of the team's and Brian's accomplishments, including their first victory and qualifying for the Chase."
Red Bull Racing has one win, nine top-five finishes and 27 top-10s. Since Toyota entered Cup racing in 2007, its support has helped teams earn 19 wins, 78 top-fives and 143 top-10s.
