Toyota Racing Launches Celebrity Dream Build Competition
Toyota’s racing division (TRD) is hosting a custom vehicle build-off to raise money for charity.
NASCAR drivers Clint Bowyer and Kyle Busch, along with NHRA dragstrip devils, Antron Brown and Alexis DeJoria have each selected a shop and a Toyota vehicle to build for the competition. Each team will have equal resources to complete their projects in time for SEMA on October 30. Fans vote for their favorite vehicles ultimately awarding the winning team $50,000 for a charity of their choice.
Alexis DeJoria competes in NHRA Nitro Funny Car racing and is one of only two women to win an NHRA Alcohol Funny Car event. DeJoria is working with Racer Engineering of San Jacinto, Calif. The Southern California shop has tremendous experience in off-roading which is why she is using a Tundra Pre-Runner as the basis for her customized off road desert basher.
