Twenty hot-rod and custom car builders have signed up to participate in the annual HRIA Pinewood Builders Challenge. Each builder will create a one-of-a-kind Pinewood car that will be raced at the Pinewood Drag Races, presented by eBay Motors, in Pomona, California, July 27, 2012. After being raced, the cars will be placed on display in the SEMA Cares booth at the SEMA Show in November and auctioned on eBay during the Show. All proceeds from the Pinewood car auctions will go to the Childhelp and Victory Junction Camp children's charities. This year, top builders participating in the challenge include Troy Trepanier, Rich Evans, Ringbrothers, Jesse Greening, Tim Strange and Troy Ladd.
