Filed under: Car Buying , Sedan , Toyota There are plenty of great reasons to look forward to the upcoming three-day Labor Day weekend, but is a Toyota Camry one of them? While a special-edition Camry might not sound as exciting as the numerous parties or cookouts taking place this weekend, Toyota is giving its dealers a special way to celebrate with the new SE Sport Limited Edition added to the 2012 Camry line equipped with the four-cylinder engine. Essentially, this car is a more attractive value package that combines a few popular options bundled together for a low(er) price. The 2012 Camry SE Sport Limited Edition will have a starting price of $25,995 (*not including delivery charges) which is about a $2,700 premium compared to the 2012 Camry SE. The package will include added equipment such as navigation, Toyota’s Entune infotainment (a $2,405 option on its own), power sunroof and power driver’s seat. Toyota livened this package up a little more with exclusive features like the 18-inch, smoked-finish wheels and a Blizzard Pearl paint that will only be produced between September 12 through November 12. The Camry SE Sport that shoppers can find in dealers this weekend will come in Barcelona Red and Attitude Black. Read the official announcement below .

Well, it appears that parent company Toyota is planning to pull a similar stunt with its FT-86 Scion FR-S coupe. Here, we see a racier FR-S prototype being prepped for this weekend’s German VLN race at the N
TUNDRA ON TOP AT TRACK ‘TOO TOUGH TO TAME’ — Four Top-10s For Toyota at Darlington DARLINGTON, S.C. (March 12, 2011) – Kasey Kahne earned his first Tundra win in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Darlington Raceway. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) and NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) had the weekend off allowing Kahne to drive for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) at the historic South Carolina track. In addition to Kahne, three more Tundra drivers earned top-10 finishes in Saturday night’s race. NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES (NCWTS) Kahne earned his first victory driving for KBM and third NCWTS win of his career Saturday night at Darlington Raceway. Kahne started second in the KBM No. 18 Toyota Tundra and led 95 (of 147) laps at the 1.366-mile egg-shaped oval to earn his third career NCWTS win in only four career starts. “I came here this weekend wanting to win — that was the plan,” said Kahne, following the race. “This is a tough series. These guys do an awesome job and that restart there with Todd (Bodine) — our truck was really good once I could get rolling.
OFF-ROAD FOCUS: CHAMP HUSEMAN BACK FOR MORE You’ve heard that old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Well, it seems 2010 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series Pro 4 Unlimited champ Rick Huseman subscribes to that philosophy as he heads into this weekend’s season-opener at Firebird Raceway in Phoenix, Ariz. “We’re dealing with the same truck,” he says of his Toyota Tundra short course off road racer. “We’ve made some small modifications, but nothing real major to upset the truck or anything. The truck was working awesome last year. I feel really comfortable in the truck and, being on the same tracks, I feel I’m in a good position to do the same thing. “Some of the other guys are struggling to make their trucks faster. We’re going to continue what we were doing, while they try new stuff. Hopefully that will give us an advantage.” It’s a bit easier to do the same thing as last year, to keep the same program in place, when you won 10 of 15 races and the championship. Huseman finished off of the podium only twice, and found himself often working his way through the entire field after some early-race misfortune only to win anyway. He locked up the title well before the final race at Firebird International Raceway, but won that race, too, and he’s looking forward to going to that same track this weekend to open his title defense.
