The SEMA Battle of the Builders competition honors SEMA Show vehicle builders, their vehicles and the products on those vehicles.
   

Featuring top vehicle builders who have proven their talents and craftsmanship by having a car or truck displayed at the 2016 SEMA Show, the third annual SEMA Battle of the Builders® competition includes 250 applications, including builds from 98 up-and-coming “Young Guns.” As the basis for a nationwide television special, the SEMA Battle of the Builders competition honors SEMA Show vehicle builders, their vehicles and the products on those vehicles. 

Industry experts will select the top 10 finalists during the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The finalists will then take over and evaluate one another’s vehicles, before the ultimate winner is announced Friday, November 4, at SEMA Ignited—the official SEMA Show after-party open to the general public.

Hosted by Chris Jacobs and Adrienne “AJ” Janic from “Overhaulin’,” the competition includes special recognition for builders under the age of 35 who are entered in SEMA Battle of the Builders.
