Mothers Polishes to Sponsor 2022 SEMA Battle of the Builders

Mothers Polishes has been named the presenting sponsor of the 2022 SEMA Battle of the Builders, SEMA Show officials announced.

“It’s not a casual decision that an exhibitor makes when selecting what vehicle to showcase at the SEMA Show,” said Tom Gattuso, SEMA vice president of events. “The vehicle they ultimately choose and the builder they choose are the best of the best. It really is the Top Gun of the industry.”

The deadline for builders to enter this year’s SEMA Battle of the Builders sponsored by Mothers Polishes is Oct. 14. Top builders will be recognized in four categories as Class Champions – Hot Rod & Hot Rod Truck; 4 Wheel Drive & Off-Road; Sport Compact, Import Performance, Luxury & Exotic; and Young Guns – before one winner is named on the final day of the SEMA Show.

The competition will unfold throughout the week, with the Top 40 announced on Nov. 1, and the Top 12 announced on Nov. 2. The Top 12 will examine and critique each other’s vehicles at the Show on Nov. 3, as they become the final judges and select the ultimate winner, organizers said.

Throughout the entire competition, camera crews will follow the action for a television special that will air on the HISTORY Channel in Jan. 2023, organizers said.
