The Lexus LX 570 may be a low-volume luxury SUV, but that's not its only role for the Japanese automaker. The LX 570 has also served as an off-road racing competitor, and that continues with Lexus' newly announced position as primary sponsor for the JTGrey Racing team.

The team hoeps to win the 2011 SCORE Stock Full Championship. The so-called JTGrey LX rides on 37-inch BF Goodrich Baja TA project race tires and custom King Racing shocks. Sparco race seats and nine KC Hilites HIDs are also part of the package.

"Last year the JTGrey team had an unbelievable racing season," said off-road racer Joe Bacal. "We are prepared for the new challenges this season will bring. We'll be racing harder and faster with Lexus this year and expect some great finishes in the LX 570."

If you want to follow the JTGrey LX's racing journey, here are a few upcoming appearances:

• Mastercraft Safety SCORE San Felipe 250 Race, March 11-13
• 43rd Tecate SCORE Baja 500, June 3-5
• 16th SCORE Las Vegas Primm 300, August 26-28
• 44th Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, November 17-20
