Judging for 2016 will be a lot different than in previous years. We will be doing a participant/judge hybrid voting process. Here's how the judging will be done this year:

Participants vote for their top three cars in each class. Judges will tally the votes for each class and pick the top 3 based on participant votes. Judges will go to the top 3 cars in each class and place a decal on the car signifying it is a top 3 finisher in class. The top 3 in each class will have extra time to prepare their cars for the final stage of judging. The judges will then judge the top 3 in each class based on the following categories:

Exterior: 10 Points
  • Paint: Clean even paint overall. No Chips or Fading. Custom paint, quality and finish.
  • Body: Fitment and finish. Body Kits, Lip Kits. No parts falling off. Must fit properly.

Interior: 10 Points
  • Craftsmanship/Custom Work: Upgrades and interior swaps. Quality of work. Cleanliness, Functionality. Correctly installed and working parts.
  • Audio/Video: Clean set up. Must be functional. Custom work.

Engine Bay: 10 Points
  • Cleanliness: Clean and free of oil spills or splash marks. No loose, cut or frayed wires.
  • Engine Swap/Power adders: Bolt-on, Turbo, SC, Nitrous etc.
  • Dress Up: Wire Tucks, Deletes, Covers, painted/powder coated pieces.

Hatch/Trunk: 10 Points
  • Cleanliness, features, use of space. Custom work.

Undercarriage: 10 Points
  • Wheels/Tires: Clean and well maintained. Wheel and tire fitment is appropriate to build. No dirt. No curb rash
  • Brakes: Rotor and caliper condition, functionality.

We can't stress cleanliness enough!
