Toronto, Ontario -- August 31, 2015 -- You can get a sneak peek at some of the incredible custom vehicles set to compete in the second annual SEMA Battle of the Builders competition, taking place at this year's SEMA Show. The 2015 SEMA Show takes place November 3 to 6 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Many builders have agreed to let fans have a view of what they're working on in preparation for the big event. After just a quick glance through the images, you can see that this year's entries are going to blow people away. There's something for every taste, from classic hot rods and sports compacts to trucks designed to go off-road and do it in style, the 2015 Battle of the Builders will be an event not to be missed.

Last year's Battle of the Builders was the inaguaral event and it gathered an enormous amount of media attention. Newspapers, magazines, websites and national television networks all covered the competition between nearly 125 builders showing off their skills and their new creations, as they fought for the right to call themselves the best. Kyle Tucker of Detroit Speed was named the winner of the first Battle of the Builders competition, narrowly beating out big-name competitors like Ringbrothers and Jeff Kinsey.

This year's competition is open to all builders with a booth, display or feature vehicle at the 2015 SEMA Show. Exhibitors are encouraged to have their builders enter the competition, as products on the vehicles gain immense media exposure through the competition as well.

The deadline to apply is Monday, September 7. For more information and to register, please visit semashow.com/botb.
