Toyota Dream Build Challenge 2013

What do Las Vegas, a new Toyota, professional athletes, and world-class brands have in common? Why, the Toyota Dream Build Challenge of course!

For the 2013 Challenge, 4 teams were given 7 weeks to build the Toyota of their dreams. Each team was comprised of Team Toyota athletes as well as their sponsoring brand. Toyota fans just like you voted for their favorite Dream Build and we are happy to announce a winner has been chosen!

Yesterday at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Joe Gibbs Racing MX, along with their brand sponsor N-FAB Inc., won the Challenge with their “Let’s Go Moto” Tundra dream build. The team wanted to make the Tundra into a “rolling pitlane,” complete with an 8-foot pit box-style bed, a spare engine, and video feeds.
