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.
