The “SEMA: Battle of the Builders” TV special will debut on A+E Networks’ FYI and HISTORY’s DRIVE block on January 26. Join hosts Adrienne “AJ” Janic and Tanner Foust and judges RJ DeVera (Meguiar’s), Cam Miller (HS Customs) and Jeremiah Proffitt (Proffitt’s Resurrection Land Cruisers) as they take you backstage at the 2019 SEMA Show.
The one-hour program highlights skilled builders who are competing for the industry’s ultimate accolade—the Battle of the Builders Top Builder Trophy. Beginning with nearly 300 entries, the Top 40 vehicles are chosen from four distinct categories—Hot Rod, Sport Compact, Truck/Off-Road, and Young Guns—and go head-to-head in a battle for top build.
Meet the builders, hear their stories and watch as the judges determine who advances to the Top 12. The Top 12 builders then take over judging duties to pick the 2019 Battle of the Builders champion who is announced during SEMA Ignited—the official SEMA Show after-party.
