Toyota formally pulled the wraps off the Xfinity Series Supra in Daytona Beach, Florida, on the eve of the Coca-Cola Firecracker 250 race.

Toyota unveiled the dynamic race vehicle prototype Thursday night in the Toyota Injector at Daytona International Speedway, where it will debut in the Xfinity season opener next February. While Toyota will continue to race the Camry in the 2019 Monster Energy Series, we expect the company to transition to Supra-style bodywork in that series within the next few years as well. Supra will soon go head-to-head against its performance-car brethren in Chevrolet's Camaro SS and Ford's Mustang.

Toyota has announced that the new Supra sports auto will be among the cars that race the NASCAR Xfinity Series. "We're confident we've accomplished that with Supra, and we hope racing fans the world over will proudly cheer its success on track".

A sports-car version of the new Supra debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The NASCAR rendition is built with design help from Calty Design Research - a longtime Toyota design studio - to conform to stock-car specifications.

The new racer complies with the Xfinity Series' 2019 rule changes, which include the use of flange-fit composite bodies in place of today's steel bodies.

Toyota has been a participant in NASCAR since 2007 and while the series isn't known for the beauty of its racecars, this Supra is a whole other level of odd-looking.
