SEMA launched the Young Guns initiative two years ago as part of their popular Battle of the Builders competition, and they’ve partnered with Goodguys once again to identify worthy young candidates. The SEMA Young Guns program aims to promote younger enthusiasts and provide them with opportunity for national exposure.

Aspiring Young Guns could qualify in the Hot Rod category at the 33rd West Coast Nationals presented by BASF. Make sure to register your ride at

After registering your ride, SEMA Young Guns participants will pick up their registration at the DoubleTree by Hilton Pleasanton to pick up their packet and then head over to the SEMA booth and park their ride with other potential Young Guns at the Alameda County Fairgrounds. A total of 10 finalists will be narrowed down and selected over the weekend. One winner will be chosen to receive their Golden Ticket to SEMA, while two finalists will be selected to go head to head for the online fan favorite vote for their chance to receive a Golden Ticket.

One winner will receive an all-expense paid trip for two to the 2019 SEMA Show, November 5-8 in Las Vegas, including transportation of their vehicle and automatic entry into the 2019 SEMA Battle of the Builders.

For your chance to qualify, be sure to ask for a special SEMA Young Guns windshield card show car registration. Park in the Young Guns area at the event on Saturday for the finalist selection process!
