Toyota Dream Build Challenge Returns to SEMA

Toyota is heading to the SEMA Show once again with its Dream Build Challenge.

This year, the 2013 Dream Build Challenge will feature a NASCAR driver, a freestyle skier, a BMX rider and two supercross stars going head-to-head in a competition to build their dream Toyota cars. Fans will also get to participate in the process by voting for their favorites on the Toyota Dream Build Challenge website.

The 2013 Toyota Dream Build Challenge competitors are Parker Kligerman, Simon Dumont, Drew Bezanson, while  Justin Brayton and Josh Grant are competing as a pair. Brayton and Grant will be building a custom 2014 Tundra called the “Let’s Go Moto Tundra,” and will team up with Joe Gibbs Racing Motocross on the build. Bezanson will partner with Skullcandy to take a Corolla and blend it with music and BMW themes to create the “Corolla Crusher.”
