We're proud to announce that the Champion of Tuner Battlegrounds 2013 will be crowned at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, November 5-8. The 4(four) finalists, "Top 4", will be invited to display their cars in a special PASMAG booth located next to the Grand Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, site of the most prestigious automotive specialty products trade event in the world!

Tuner Battlegrounds brings automotive enthusiasts together in a unique online car show (www.tunerbattlegrounds.com). Tuner Battlegrounds is unique in that rather than PASMAG's staff selecting the "Best of Show" winners, the responsibility is placed in the hands of the audience (fans, show-goers, friends and family). With a click of a button or sending of a text message, the audience votes and chooses winners from one round to the next.
