NASCAR is a very American form of auto racing, and the winning vehicles are generally from domestic brands like Ford and Chevrolet. However at the 2016 Daytona 500, Joe Gibbs Racing driver Denny Hamlin scored victory in a Toyota Camry.

Toyota has built the Camry in the United States for many years, but seeing a Japanese automaker win at Daytona was still a major shakeup in the race's history.
