The 2015 Corolla was wrapped in a colorful design and designated as the official pace car for the race.

Guests were invited by Toyota brand ambassadors to take a jumping photo in front of the Toyota Corolla pace car and share it on social media. They also received a branded rally towel — serving as a useful premium for cleaning up from the large amounts of colored chalk used during the run.
