What Every SEMA Show Builder Needs to Know

By Juan Torres  

Phil and Jeremy Gerber’s ’67 Chevelle was a top 10 finalist in last year’s SEMA Battle of the Builders competition.

Applications for the 2017 SEMA Battle of the Builders competition are still being accepted. Open exclusively to customizers with a car or truck on display at the 2017 SEMA Show, the program recognizes and brings increased media exposure to builders, their vehicles and the products that make their vehicles unique.

New for this year will be the recognition of young builders ages 27 and younger on the final day of the SEMA Show. These young builders will compete with top builders in three categories: Hot Rod, Truck/Off-Road, and Sport Compact. Industry judges at the 2017 SEMA Show will select the top 10 entries in each category before naming the Top 12 vehicles. The 12 finalists will then vote among themselves to name a winner, who will be announced during SEMA Ignited—the official SEMA Show after-party.

Register now to be a part of one of the industry’s most prestigious vehicle build competitions. The deadline to enter is September 1.
