Nissan has been chosen as the Official Truck of Circuit of The Americas (COTA) with Nissan Titan and Titan XD full-size pickups and other vehicles set to be used for track usage and maintenance.

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.

Nissan will also be supplying an Armada SUV for the safety chase team and a 565-horsepower Nissan GT-R sports car for pace car/safety car activities for all COTA controlled events.

The GT-R will also be used for parade laps and hot laps during various programs.

Circuit of The Americas is one of the premier motorsports facilities in the U.S., featuring top tier road racing series from Moto GP, Pirelli World Challenge, IMSA and SCCA, all the way to the US Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Last weekend, COTA hosted hundreds of Datsun and Nissan Z car enthusiasts from around the world as part of the 30th annual International Z Car Convention (ZCON).
