LeithCars.com enters Nascar sponsorship market

LeithCars.com, a website for new and used cars, entered its first ever vehicle sponsorship in North American stock-car racing series Nascar at the weekend.

For Saturday’s Xfinity Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, LeithCars.com chose MBM Motorsports and its No. 66 Toyota Camry driven by Timmy Hill.

A ‘unique tribute design’ was unveiled at the Leith Toyota showroom, September 18, with the LeithCars.com logo prominent on the bonnet and the side of the car.

The same car was raced, September 29, in the Nascar feeder series at Charlotte’s new race course and oval (ROVAL) track set-up.
