For The First Time In Forever: Ryan Tuerck's 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback

For The First Time In Forever: Ryan Tuerck's 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback

At a recent private test at the legendary Irwindale Speedway, Ryan Tuerck got behind the wheel of his 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback for the first time and made a couple of tandem passes. Photographer Larry Chen caught the first still images, which are being shown today for the first time. The first videos of the team in action will be released in the coming weeks.

Tuerck is a leading social influencer and top-tier driver with a career 14 podiums. His down-home charm, commitment to the sport's grassroots, and talent in front of the camera have brought him a social fanbase of over a million followers. Earlier this year, he retired his previous chassis, a powerful Toyota 86, sparking speculation about his next move.
