With a plant in San Antonio and its North American headquarters scheduled to open early next year in Plano, the Toyota footprint in Texas continues to expand. Beyond the infrastructure and growing employment is an ever-expanding number of tie-ins to the Texas community, with Toyota support going to the arts, community services and last – but not least – the Toyota Texas Bass Classic, whose beneficiary, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, remains one of the better reasons to own a truck, trailer and camping gear. Their most recent tournament took place last month. Details of its delayed broadcast follow:

SUNDAY, June 26
A one-hour special broadcast of the Toyota Texas Bass Classic (TTBC) championship bass fishing tournament, one of the most prestigious bass fishing tournaments, will air on NBC Sports Network this Sunday, June 26 from 9 – 10 a.m. EST.
