Transamerican Auto Parts Renews the “Life is Better Off-Road” SEMA Vehicle Build Award
Transamerican Auto Parts (TAP) has announced the 2016 renewal of the “Life is Better Off-Road” SEMA builder award. This recognition has established itself as the premier industry prize awarded by Transamerican Auto Parts to the best-presented, truly off-road-capable truck, Jeep or SUV on display at the Show. The award’s inaugural winner—the CC Legend Jeep by Addictive Desert Designs—was chosen from among hundreds of submissions by a panel of leading industry authorities at the 2015 SEMA Show in a ceremony hosted by television personality and noted automotive enthusiast Rutledge Wood. The award is open to all off-road vehicle constructors and product manufacturers on display at the SEMA Show. It will once again be judged by a panel of the off-road industry’s leading authorities who select 10 semi-finalists from among the submitted entries based on such criteria as off-road reliability and capability, real-world functionality, craftsmanship quality and overall vehicle presentation. The panel will then choose one Jeep and one truck/SUV as the two finalists to be considered for recognition as the most authentic, off-road-capable vehicle at the 2016 SEMA Show.
The award, a custom-designed trophy, will be presented by Transamerican Auto Parts President and CEO Greg Adler, Thursday, November 3, at 2:00 p.m., at the Pro Comp/Transamerican Auto Parts booth #62112 within the SEMA SCORE Baja 1000 Experience area (Located outside of the South Hall in the Silver Lot). The winner will also receive a cover feature and multi-page vehicle spotlight in ORA magazine, a professional photo shoot and recognition across the spectrum of Transamerican social media and digital channels. A promotional email campaign will highlight the award and winners and TAP will extend an invitation to be displayed in feature locations at TAP-sponsored events, tradeshows and Truck & Jeep Fests.
