Nissan has been chosen as the Official Truck of the Circuit of The Americas (COTA) and will be supplying a number of Nissan TITAN and TITAN XD full-size pickups and other vehicles for track usage as safety vehicles, track maintenance, and track sweepers. The multi-year agreement includes prominent signage on the trucks and the track areas, along with display access at events.
"Nissan is looking forward to a great partnership with COTA in the years ahead, where we can showcase our Nissan trucks in their natural setting – working hard every day," said Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc. "With every TITAN half-ton and TITAN XD covered by "America's Best Truck Warranty," we're confident that they are more than up to the task."
Nissan will also be supplying an Armada SUV for the safety chase team and a 565-hp GT-R sports car for pace car/safety car activities for all COTA-controlled events.
"This partnership with Nissan is going to be a great addition to Circuit of The Americas," said David Pace, Vice President of Operations at Circuit of The Americas. "Our safety team is one of the most advanced of any other racetrack in the world, having the best-trained staff using the most advanced tools on the market. Adding the reliability and strength of the Nissan TITAN is a welcome addition and it is going to make our team that much stronger."
