Toyota looking definite for Nextel Cup

The automaker has already submitted car to NASCAR, but says 2006 will be for testing. So Toyota's much anticipated Cup debut is expected in 2007. Toyota is expected to shift the money it is spending on open wheel racing in America to NASCAR's Nextel Cup Series and its Busch Series as early as 2007.

The Japanese automaker announced late in June that it would abandon the Indy Racing League and the Toyota Atlantic series at the end of the '06 season. Last week, Les Unger, Toyota national motorsports manager, confirmed to Stock Car Racing that Toyota Racing Development is working on a car chassis it has already submitted to NASCAR for approval.
