Akio Toyoda Tests the 2013 Toyota Camry NASCAR Racer in Indy

Video

Kyle Busch and the Toyota CEO ride around the Daytona International Speedway.

Akio Toyoda loves his racing just as much as he loves running Toyota. He recently attended the 2012 Indy 500 and met up with professional NASCAR driver Kyle Busch for a few hot laps in the new 2013 Toyota Camry NASCAR stock car. Kyle Busch owns the modern-era record for most race wins in a season with 24 wins spread across the top three NASCAR series. In addition to being the first driver in the Nationwide Series to lead more than 10,000 laps, he has won 85 races behind the wheel of a Toyota.

With all those accomplishments, it seems a bit unusual that he would sit shotgun while Akio Toyoda gets behind the wheel at the Daytona International Speedway. However it's good to be the boss. Watch the pair spend some quality time together at this past weekend's Indy 500.
