Toyota recently unveiled the Camry XSE race car for the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series, replacing the Camry TRD Next Gen that debuted in 2021 and boasted 18 victories and 25 pole positions over the past two seasons.

Toyota Racing Development (TRD) collaborated closely with Calty Design to ensure the NASCAR Camry mirrors the refreshed street model revealed in Los Angeles. The car’s design includes a distinct hammerhead front fascia with an upper grille blending into updated slim, wide headlights reminiscent of the latest Toyota Prius. The lower grille features new C-shaped corner vents, the hood boasts new character lines, and there are updated hood duct exits. At the rear, sleeker taillights give the Camry a more sculpted appearance.

The 2024 Camry XSE race car will correctly highlight Toyota’s attention to detail, as has been showcased in the new street version of the Toyota Camry. We are excited to bring this car to the race track and continue to achieve success with it for years to come, said Paul Doleshal, group manager of motorsports at TMNA (Toyota Motor North America). “The amount of work put into this car’s production cannot be overstated, and we thank everyone at TRD and Calty Design for their efforts in creating a premier vehicle for our team partners to compete for wins and championships.

Although Toyota didn’t disclose engine specifics, the Next Gen cars typically utilize a 358 cubic inch (5.86-liter) V8 paired with a five-speed sequential manual transmission, generating 670 horsepower without a restrictor plate.

The foundation of Toyota’s presence in NASCAR is our commitment to continuous improvement on and off the race track. Our Camry XSE race car reinforces that mantra and accurately reflects the key design attributes of the all-new production Toyota Camry,” stated David Wilson, president of TRD. As we prepare for the 2024 season, we look forward to working closely with our race team partners to optimize the performance of the newly designed Camry race car so we can continue our legacy of leading laps, winning races, and competing for championships with the Camry nameplate.

The Camry XSE joins the GR Supra in the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) and the Tundra TRD Pro in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. Eight Toyota Camrys will compete on track every weekend, commencing with the Clash at the Coliseum exhibition race in Los Angeles in February.
