Pinewood Builder Awarded Best in Show

The build.
Best in Show will be auctioned live during the HRIA Reception.
Jesse Greening of Greening Auto Co. was awarded the coveted “Best in Show” designation from the Hot Rod Industry Alliance (HRIA) for the 2012 HRIA Builder’s Challenge and Pinewood races. Fifteen well-known builders created one-of-a-kind miniature hot rods in the style of pinewood derby cars. The cars were raced at the annual SEMA Pinewood Drag Races in Pomona, California. These cars will be on display at the annual SEMA Show and then 12 will be placed on eBay for auction from October 30–November 8, and three will be auctioned live. All proceeds from the auction will go to support SEMA Cares and its two children’s charities—Childhelp and Victory Junction.

Greening’s custom build will be one of the three auctioned live during the HRIA Industry Reception, Wednesday, October 31, 2012, at the Las Vegas Hotel in Ballrooms A and B. Joining Greening for the live auction will be Mike Cooper of Spanky’s Hot Rod & Customs, who received “Best Engineered” honors, and three-time race winner Derek White of Street Vizions. The live auction will immediately precede the Awards Presentation, emceed by the voice of the NHRA and SEMA, Dave McClelland. The night will honor the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association’s Trendsetter, the National Street Rod Association’s Achievement Award, the International Car Show Association’s Legends of Hot Rod Award, as well as the prestigious Industry Recognition of an Individual, Business of the Year and Hall of Fame honors from SEMA’s hot-rod council—HRIA.

Be sure and join HRIA for this special evening that will honor the hot-rodding industry and help support a great cause by participating in the live auction. RSVP today!
