By Ashley Reyes

SEMA Launch Pad competitors continue their one-minute lightning round pitches in episode two of the SEMA Launch Pad video series, now available on the SEMA YouTube Channel. In the 20-minute video, viewers will learn about six innovative products from aspiring entrepreneurs, before five of the 15 semifinalists are eliminated.

Hear what the judges (Myles Kovacs, co-founder of DUB magazine and TIS Wheels; Jared Hare, founder of Addictive Desert Designs; Alex Parker, owner and CMO of Redline Detection; and Chip Foose, founder of Foose Design) have to say about the following six competitors and their products: Dustin Woolf, Natural Nitros; Kevin Robinson, Trac LLC; Michael Ruhs, TailHand; Paul Rooprai, AutoBio LLC; Tom Sawarynski, Off-Road Research; Michael Sullivan, Fox Products LCC; and Edward Tansingco, Thinskinz.

Viewers will see behind-the-scenes feedback from the judges as they deliberate and decide which five semifinalists will be sent home, and which 10 semifinalists will move on to compete during the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, or a grand prize valued at $100,000.

New episodes will be released each Tuesday on the SEMA Show YouTube channel, with the final episode in the series concluding with the top-five competitors being named.
