After months of speculation that Red Bull Racing would switch to Chevys next season, the team announced that they have re-signed with Toyota. The agreement continues a three-year deal between RBR and Toyota.
RBR general manager and vice president Jay Frye said:
Our partnership with Toyota has been a critical element to the success of Red Bull Racing Team. Both Red Bull Racing Team 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 for the championship. We look forward to the future with Toyota.
Lee White, president and GM of Toyota Racing Development said:
We look forward to continuing our relationship with Red Bull Racing Team – a member of our ‘freshman class’ in 2007 when Toyota joined the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series as a manufacturer. We are extremely proud of the team’s and Brian’s accomplishments, including their first victory and qualifying for the Chase.
