Enthusiasts Invited to Show Off Their Rides at
the SEMA Show

(Sept. 7, 2011)

– Owners of select vehicle models may be able to have their cars or trucks
featured at the 2011 SEMA Show, taking place Tuesday–Friday, November 1–4,
2011, in Las Vegas. Through the SEMA Award Contender Contest, owners of a SEMA
Award contender vehicle are invited to submit a video clip highlighting the
vehicle’s modifications for a chance to have the vehicle featured at the SEMA
Show. Vehicle owners will also receive credentials and amenities to attend the
annual trade-only event, where they will be among the first to learn which
vehicle platforms win the actual SEMA Award.

A total of 39 vehicle
models have been named as SEMA Award contenders. While the actual SEMA Award
winners will be selected by exhibitors based on the vehicles that exhibitors
choose to display in their booths at the SEMA Show, the contenders are vehicle
models that are most likely to have a significant presence at the 2011 SEMA
Show. Contenders were determined based on several key factors, including
support from the automakers, interest from the media and enthusiasts and
SEMA-member program participation.

Owners of any of the
contender vehicles are invited to submit a 60–90-second video showcasing the
vehicle and explaining why their registered, street-legal vehicle deserves to
be on display at the SEMA Show. Winning videos will include a walk around
pointing out and describing the type, brand and benefits of products installed.

Select vehicle featured in
the videos will receive a featured vehicle spot at the 2011 SEMA Show, along
with two credentials to attend the event, two-nights hotel accommodations and
allowance for food and gas. Vehicles will be selected by October 1, 2011.
