Four Drivers, four Toyota vehicles, four build shops, four charities...

The Toyota Racing Dream Build Challenge, pits top Toyota drivers from the NHRA and NASCAR in a build challenge for the 2012 SEMA show. For this contest, the winners are the drivers’ hand-picked charities. This is a great opportunity for you to get an inside look at four build shops — racing against the clock — to get their vehicles onto the SEMA floor.


NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer is taking his Prius to RK Performance Center in Charlotte for a “tekk”nological make-over. NHRA Top Fueler, Antron Brown has enlisted the Toyota Racing Technical Center in Torrance, CA to build out a Family Dragster Sequoia. Driver of the #18 M&M’s Camry, Kyle Busch, will give a once-stock Camry the “Rowdy” Edition treatment at Detroit Speed, Inc. in Mooresville, NC. Finally, funny car rising star, Alexis DeJoria tackles an off-road Tundra pre-runner. This Tundra will push the team at Racer Engineering in San Jacinto, CA to the limits.

Watch the builds come together by liking Toyota Racing’s Facebook page, subscribing to our YouTube channel and following in-depth forum posts on this very thread. In the 10 days leading up to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, we’ll be looking to you to pick the winning build. Voting begins on October 20th on www.toyotaracingdreambuild.com. Check out the video introduction of all the build concepts, the drivers, and the charities they’re competing for.

Check out the first in our Team Introductions, with Team Antron Brown, up-and-coming star on the National Hot Rod Association Top Fuel circuit. His Family Dragster Sequoia, “DragQuoia,” is an outrageous dream that could have only come from someone who’s lived his whole life in the fast lane.http://bit.ly/dreambuild
