For the third consecutive year, the 2017 Pinewood Builders Challenge—previously held during SEMA’s Installation Gala—featured head-to-head racing last summer at the National Street Rod Association Street Rod Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky. In addition to the Builders Challenge, a Manufacturers’ Shootout was staged for the third time ever for participating members of the Hot Rod Industry Alliance (HRIA).
The inaugural Industry Cup Challenge pits companies against each other in their respective categories with the winner of each category advancing to the final Cup Challenge race.
Each year SEMA Cares volunteers make a difference by donating their love and time to several Pinewood Drag Races build days throughout the United States to support children in need.
