Tomy Drissi To Drive #66 Hercules Car for The Toyota/SaveMart 350

Tomy Drissi announced today he will be teaming up with Jay Robinson Racing and the #66 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Team to drive The Toyota/SaveMart 350 at Sonoma Raceway, June 22.  The Toyota/Save Mart 350 is a 218.9 miles (352.3 km) NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event held annually at Sonoma Raceway at Sears Point in Sonoma, California. This race is one of only two Sprint Cup races annually run on a road circuit (the other being Watkins Glen).

Always thrilled to drive in front of the NASCAR fans, Tomy anticipates a great race and big fan response to the #66 Hercules liveried Cup car.

“The only thing more fun than driving a Cup car is driving a Cup car at Sonoma,” said Tomy. “These guys are so good… it’s such a good show and really great racing. And, the fans are unbelievable. They’re going to love the the Hercules car. We’ve gone all out on the graphics package, and I’m confident that the Jay Robison Racing crew will have a fast car right off the trailer.”

Excited to be partnering with the team, this will be Tomy’s 2nd year in row with JRR at Sonoma.

“This is a very important race for our team,” Jay Robinson said.  “We are in a very tight points battle. I am very confident in Tomy’s ability to bring home a good finish.”

The green flag will fly for The Toyota/SaveMart 350 at Sonoma Raceway, June 22 at 3PM and will air live on TNT. The race is scheduled for 110 laps (218.9 miles).

Hercules, starring Dwayne Johnson, opens in theaters July 25th. Both man and myth, Hercules (Dwayne Johnson) leads a band of mercenaries to help end a bloody civil war in the land of Thrace and return the rightful king to his throne. A tormented soul from birth, Hercules has the strength of a God but feels the suffering of a human.

Unimaginable villains will test the mythical power of Hercules in Director Brett Ratner’s gritty take on one of the most epic action heroes of the ages.
