KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Kansas Speedway has announced an extension of a multi-year partnership with Toyota that will keep the automaker’s line of vehicles as its official pace car.

Toyota became the pace car of the two Sprint Cup races at Kansas Speedway in 2012.

The deal was announced on the same day Toyota revealed an 11-year agreement for various naming rights at revamped Daytona International Speedway. The famous Florida track is owned by International Speedway Corp., which also owns Kansas Speedway.

Kansas Speedway president Pat Warren said the partnership helps to strengthen the track’s ties to Toyota dealerships in the Kansas City area.
