Think your truck modifications are impressive enough to stand out among some of the best mods in the U.S.? Those drivers who believe the truck mods they've made are up to snuff will have a chance to pit their vehicles against rides from across the country as part of the upcoming Royal Purple contest, done in partnership with the 2013 SEMA Show.
A revamped contest from Royal Purple, a manufacturer of synthetic oil, is scheduled for the 2013 SEMA Show. The new setup will provide truck owners with their own class to compete in, which is a change from years past. Previously, the competition, called "Show It Off At SEMA" and conducted by the manufacturer, selected some of the best modified vehicles from a pool of entrants and brought the winners out to the official SEMA show. This year will be a bit different, as the company has expanded the classes to include one specifically for trucks.
"Royal Purple has an incredibly diverse customer base that includes enthusiasts of just about every type of vehicle imaginable," said Marlena Soloman, a communications specialist for Royal Purple, as quoted by Mopar Muscle magazine. "By adding this new truck class, it enables thousands more enthusiasts to be a part of our most successful contest."
All drivers have to do to enter their ride is submit photos of their truck through a special contest app. You can download the program and submit your truck pictures starting Aug. 1 at 12 a.m., with the deadline coming one week later, Aug. 8. Car owners can then enter from Aug. 8 to 15. Once that period has closed, Royal Purple will select five vehicles from each class for further consideration. A panel of experts will then judge the automobiles based on their modifications, and the winners will be brought to the SEMA show and given their own display to showcase their rides.
The 2013 SEMA Show is slated for Nov. 5 to 8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev. It is one of the largest specialty product trade events in the world, drawing in thousands of guests and vendors eager to check out the latest and greatest products and designs. With seminars, discussions, demonstrations, entertainment and more, the show is one of the coolest and most eye-opening events for fans of off-roading and vehicle modifications.
