125+ VEHICLE BUILDERS COMPETE IN SEMA BATTLE OF THE BUILDERSTM
DIAMOND BAR, CA (October 21, 2014) - More than 125 vehicle builders and car customizers have been entered into the first-ever SEMA Battle of the BuildersTM competition taking place at SEMA Ignited, Friday, November 7, 2014. The builders represent an elite group of individuals who have demonstrated extreme talent, creativity and craftsmanship in modifying cars, trucks and SUVs.
Editors of leading automotive magazines - Sam Du from Super Street, David Freiburger from Hot Rod, and Fred Williams from Petersen's 4Wheel & Off Road - will select the Top Ten builders, who will be announced at the SEMA Show on Tuesday, November 4. These ten finalists will then judge one another and vote to determine who will be named the ultimate winner in the 2014 SEMA Battle of the BuildersTM.
The competition is the foundation for a nationwide television special that will be filmed at the inaugural SEMA Ignited, an event taking place after the trade-only SEMA Show closes, on Friday, November 7, from 4-10 pm. Hundreds of vehicles will exit the Las Vegas Convention Center after the SEMA Show and make their way to the LINQ near the strip in Las Vegas, where SEMA Ignited will be taking place. They will join exhibitors, products and celebrities from the SEMA Show at the LINQ, along with food trucks, music and entertainment.
While the SEMA Show is a trade show that is not open to the general public, SEMA Ignited is open to consumers and allows attendees a chance to preview many of the industry's latest in automotive accessories on many of the 2014 SEMA Show vehicles that were on display during the 2014 SEMA Show week.
