Team General Tire's Jeff "Ox" Kargola is set to be surprised in Surprise, Ariz. this weekend as he is officially presented with his newly redesigned and tricked-out Toyota Tundra at the Sept. 26 Lucas Oil Off-Road Race.

West Coast Customs has redone the racer's ride as part of the Discovery Channel's "Inside West Coast Customs" television show. Tape of Kargola's episode will air later this year.

Shop owner Ryan Friedlinghaus and his crew are world-renowned for their extreme vehicles, outrageous features and unique designs, according to Dana Zamalloa, General's public relations manager.

"We are so excited to see this truck by West Coast Customs," Zamalloa says.

"I have worked with some of the best car builders in the industry," Zamalloa reports, "and Ryan's style and design always blow me away. Ox was a perfect candidate for this build; he has become a perfect crossover athlete with a solid freestyle MX career, he's a stellar Baja MX racer and now an aggressive off- road race truck driver."

In his debut into off-road racing at the Lucas series event in Glen Helen, Calif., Kargola took third place in the Superlite class.

In Baja MX racing, he came in first at the 2010 SCORE Baja 500 in Class 22, took another class win at the 2010 SCORE San Felipe 250 and is in contention for this season's overall SCORE Baja championship.
