  • Toyota wins first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Manufacturer's Title: Toyota secured its first-ever NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) manufacturer's championship with a sixth-place finish by Kyle Busch at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday to capture the title in Toyota's 10th year of Cup competition. Camry drivers won 16-of-36 races to take the NSCS manufacturer's championship in the season finale. The championship is the first manufacturer's title for Toyota in the Cup Series, and Toyota has now secured the manufacturer's title in all three NASCAR national touring series.
    "Capturing our first Cup Series manufacturer's title is a tremendous accomplishment, and one that has been a goal for Toyota since entering the series 10 years ago as underdogs in this ultra-competitive series," said Ed Laukes, Vice President of Integrated Marketing Operations for Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A. "With the partnership of great teams like Joe Gibbs Racing and Furniture Row Racing, Toyota has been able to breakthrough and become the first different manufacturer to earn this championship in 13 seasons. Toyota has now won manufacturer's championships in all three NASCAR national touring series, and to have reached this amazing milestone really speaks to Toyota's commitment to not only NASCAR, but also to motorsports endeavors around the globe. We're proud of the effort put forth by each of our Toyota teams, and all of the Toyota team members that have allowed us to reach this goal."
    Five Camry drivers collected 16 wins over 36 races during the 2016 season, including 12 wins by Joe Gibbs Racing and four by Furniture Row Racing. Busch and Martin Truex Jr. led the group with four wins a piece, while Carl Edwards (three victories), Denny Hamlin (two), and Matt Kenseth (two) also recorded triumphs in 2016.
    In addition to securing the 2016 NSCS manufacturer's championship, Toyota claimed the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) manufacturer's title at Phoenix International Raceway and the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) manufacturer's championship at Homestead. Toyota drivers also won multiple championships across the NASCAR national touring series, with Daniel Suarez winning the driver's championship in the NXS and Kyle Busch Motorsports taking the owner's title in the NCWTS.
    Toyota first entered NSCS competition in 2007 and the 2016 season marks the Camry's 10th year competing at NASCAR's highest level. Since joining NSCS competition, Toyota has won 95 races and captured 90 poles in 360 races.(Toyota Racing)(11-21-2016)

  • Toyota close to 1st Cup Series Manufacturers Championship: Toyota leads the Manufacturer's Championship point standings in the Sprint Cup Series, having a 30-point advantage and a finish of 26th or better by a Toyota driver would clinch the title. Should Toyota win the NSCS title, it would mark the first time in 13 seasons a manufacturer other than Chevrolet has won the award and would be the first ever Manufacturer's title for Toyota in Cup (Toyota Racing)(11-17-2016)

Total Points
(wins)
1,452 (12) 1,388 (8) 1,477 (16)

Points awarded as follows:
The points system mirrors the owner championship points structure (changed slightly in 2016).
Points will be awarded to the single highest finisher for each car manufacturer in each championship event according to the finishing position awarded for each race.
Specifically, in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, points will be awarded as follows (40-1, plus bonus points).
Three additional bonus points will be awarded to the manufacturer that wins the race with the exception of
of the Championship race at Homestead, the four drivers in the Chase do not receive any bonus points for leading laps.
The single highest finisher for each manufacturer will receive one additional bonus point for leading a lap, and one additional bonus point for leading the most laps.
Example: In a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, if a Ford driver finishes in each of the top three positions and the winning Ford driver leads the most laps,
and a Chevy driver finishes in fourth position without leading a lap, Ford will receive 45 points and Chevy will receive 37 points.

    NOTE: in August 1971, Bobby Allison won at Bowman-Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, NC running a Mustang [Ford], Allison was not and has not been credited with that victory [is listed as 84 wins not 85], as he ran an 'unapproved car'. NASCAR's weekly media book lists 48 races run in 1971 but only 47 manufacturers counted as winning.
