THE INTENSE COMPETITION FOR THE TITLE OF AUTOMOTIVE BUILDER OF THE YEAR
—SEMA: BATTLE OF THE BUILDERS World Premieres Sunday, March 8 at 8 PM ET/PT–
(Silver Spring, Md.) – Velocity is exclusively taking viewers inside the search for America’s top automotive builder in SEMA: BATTLE OF THE BUILDERS, world premiering Sunday, March 8 at 8 PM ET/PT. The one-hour special chronicles the landmark competition held at the 2014 SEMA Show where more than 100 car builders from across the country entered their incredible, innovative creations in the hopes of winning bragging rights and the title of America’s finest automotive builder.
Hosted by Adrienne Janic of Velocity’s OVERHAULIN’ and Chris Kersting, President and CEO of SEMA, BATTLE OF THE BUILDERS follows three expert judges (David, Freiburger, Editor-in-Chief of Hot Rod Magazine; Sam Du, Editor-in-Chief of Super Street Magazine; and Fred Williams, Brand Manager of Peterson’s 4Wheel & Off Road) as they narrow the field from more than 100 entries – spanning several automotive categories – to just 10 semi-finalists. The judges then comb the one million square feet of SEMA Show floor to personally inspect the jaw dropping, show stopping semifinalists’ builds.
Each of the 10 cars are then put on display for the general public at the dazzling LINQ Resort in Las Vegas during SEMA Ignited, SEMA’s official after show party. There Freiburger, Du and Williams identify the three finalists before naming the top car builder in America.
SEMA: BATTLE OF THE BUILDERS features the cutting-edge work of world-class car builders Troy Ladd, Gordon Aram, the Ring Brothers, Steve Strope, Bobby Alloway, Bisi Ezerioha, Dale Dondel, Jeff Kinsey, Rick Dore and Larry McRae.
