Texas-based Toyota Motor North America proudly announces the addition of Mark Daniels Jr. to their professional bass angling team.
Daniels, who holds a degree in environmental science from Tuskegee University, is a perennial championship qualifier and a long-time member of the Toyota Bonus Bucks program.
“Not only does Mark have a long history of purchasing and towing with our Tundras, but he is also a tremendous person, a devoted family man, a consistent championship qualifier, and a fun, humble, guy who loves to engage with fishing fans. We’re grateful to have a person of his caliber as part of Team Toyota,” says Steve Appelbaum, National Manager, Sponsorship Integration, Toyota Motor North America.
“I’ve towed with a Toyota the majority of my pro career, and my Tundras have always been incredibly reliable, which means I never have to worry about making it safely and on time to the next tournament,” says Daniels, who has two tour-level wins.
“To be honest, even though I’ve been a full-time pro for a decade now, there’s still a big part of me that’s a fan of the guys I grew up watching on TV like Kevin VanDam. Not to mention so many of the other iconic anglers that are a part of Team Toyota. So, to join such an awesome group is pretty humbling,” adds Daniels.
The addition of Daniels is a testament to Toyota’s ongoing support of bass fishing, as both a sponsor of numerous top-level tournament trails, along with top pros, and amateur anglers too through its Toyota Bonus Bucks program.
