Toyota is bringing an arsenal of custom vehicles to SEMA 2011, including three pickups and one very cool Yaris B-Spec Racer. The pint-sized bruiser is based on the 2012 Yaris SE and should be bashing fenders with the rest of the SCCA B-Spec class contenders soon. Toyota says that Jamie Bestwick, of BMX fame, will campaign the car in the SCCA National Championship Runoffs at Road America in Elkhart, Wisconsin. The car features all of the hardware necessary to meet spec, including an eight-point SCCA roll cage, fire-suppression system, race seat, and six-point harness.

Toyota also has something special for those of you who prefer to take your racing off the track. The Long Beach Racers Tacoma is inspired by the upcoming Tacoma TRD T/X Baja Series, and features custom 60mm Bilstein race shocks, 35-inch BF Goodrich tires, a 50-gallon fuel cell and a big-brake kit among other goodies. All of that kit will come to bear when the truck heads to the Baja 1000 next year.

DC Shoes and West Coast Customs will also show off a unique Toyota Tundra built just for the motocross crowd while Oakley crafted a special Surf Tacoma to cater to the surfers of the world. A pre-production version of the Tacoma TRD T/X Baja Series pickup will also be on display as will the Camry Daytona 500 pace car.

      Wow, thank you SCCA. You're still teasing us with the Runoffs. That was my favorite time of the year for motorsports, then you took it off Speed.

        It was a cost issue. I don't have the numbers behind it, but I believe it was unsustainable for the future aka wasn't NASCAR programming. Currently the RunOffs are broadcast LIVE on www.speedcasttv.com but unfortunately it's over for the year. All the races are up there for your viewing though!

          Thanks. I really loved watching the GT1, DSR/CSR, AS, and all the formula classes.

      I'm not really one for decal kits...but WOW! This one made me reconsider that there are tasteful ones. Love the black rims with the Union Jack theme on the mirrors...and white paint splashes reminds me of Toyota's F1 days! Kudo's Toyota! Wonder if this might get a Special Edition treatment?
