Builders planning to display a car or truck at the SEMA Show can earn added exposure by entering the SEMA Battle of the Builders competition online at semashow.com/botb. This year's SEMA Show is set for Oct. 30-Nov. 2 in Las Vegas.
The contest, now in its fifth year, shines a spotlight on the talents and craftsmanship of builders. New for this year will be recognition for the winners of each of the four different categories, which include Hot Rod, Truck/Off-Road, Sport Compact and Young Guns. In addition, SEMA has expanded the Young Guns regional program, which will award 14 builders age 27 and younger the opportunity to participate in SEMA Battle of the Builders.
SEMA this year has also partnered with AutoCon, Bonnier and Goodguys to award a SEMA prize package at select regional car shows. Designated regional winners will receive a prize package that includes an all-expenses paid trip for two to the SEMA Show, transportation of the winner’s vehicle, and a designated feature spot at the 2018 SEMA Show. To find a full list of the participating regional car events, visit semashow.com/botb.
As in previous years, one builder will be named the contest’s overall top winner during the SEMA Show, and all competitors could be featured in a one-hour, nationwide TV special that will air on the Velocity Network.
