I’ve been blogging for a long time, and it’s a lot of work, but sometimes it’s pretty fun too! I’ve gotten to experience things I wouldn’t have otherwise, and last month I had one of those opportunities. I’m still thinking about the amazing week I had driving the new 2018 Toyota Camry XSE around town and to Charlotte for the NASCAR Cup Series All-Star Race. I also got to enjoy some VIP-level access before and during the race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. It was unbelievable!
Are you a NASCAR fan? I have to admit that I wasn’t a racing fan, even after living in North Carolina for over 10 years. My feelings about NASCAR have changed after an incredible experience I had thanks to Toyota!
I was privileged to spend two days getting a behind-the-scenes look at all thing NASCAR the weekend of the All-Star Race. My takeaway, after seeing what goes into the cars, the drivers and teams behind them, making the race experience memorable for the fans, and getting a taste of the racing industry and all of the people who work so hard to make it happen–I am truly impressed!
Going into the race weekend, I had no idea what to expect, but I came away with a new perspective. The best way to tell you what it’s like behind the scenes at The Charlotte Motor Speedway and the All-Star Race is just to show you!
I got to watch part of the All-Star Race from the pit!
We also toured the Toyota Racing Development facility and met with Toyota representatives to learn more about their innovations on and off the racetrack.
Back at home, I had a great time driving the 2018 Toyota Camry XSE for the week, and I only wish it could’ve been longer. They thought of everything in designing this car, from the sporty look to the amazing safety features. It was so much fun to drive too. The list of things to love about this car is long, but I’ll name a few: the lane departure alert with steering assist, the pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, the sound system, the back-up and “overhead” camera, and just the great handling! I encourage you to check out everything the 2018 Toyota Camry has to offer.
So, are you a NASCAR fan? Let me know! Do you own a Toyota Camry? Leave me a comment!
