Modify - Tune - Compete - Win
Automotive enthusiasts compete at events on a weekly basis. Not only does it take time, money, motivation and dedication to modify and tune their vehicles, enthusiasts also pour resources into attending, displaying and competing with their vehicles at events. Tuner Battlegrounds is an annual bracket-style tournament facilitated by PASMAG online at www.tunerbattlegrounds.com. Here's the spin - rather than PASMAG staff alone selecting the 'Best of' show winners as judges, the responsibility is shared with the audience (the fans, show-goers, friends and family of the Tuners). With a click of a button or a text from a cell phone, the audience will be able to vote and choose who they think should win, from one Stage (Round) after another.
TUNER BATTLEGROUNDS "LIVE" INVITATIONAL
Tuner Battlegrounds: LIVE (TBGL) Invitational provides regional competing opportunities for event promoters and competitors. Tuners that wish to particpate in TBGL must first advance-register to compete in the TBGL affiliated event. Online voting takes place the week leading up to the TBGL affiliated event to narrow the final competitors to two (2). At the acutal event, the 2 finalists battle head-to-head by encouraging their supporters to text their vote to a dedicated short code number. A one vote per cell phone limit applies and ensures that the vehicle with the most true supporters wins. For 2014, TBGL will take place at over a dozen events spread out across North America. The main Tuner Battlegrounds competition, Battle for SEMA, begins in the Fall of 2014.
Tuner Battlegrounds: LIVE Invitational winners receive a PASMAG mini-feature in print.
TUNER BATTLEGROUNDS "BATTLE FOR SEMA"
Registered competitors of the Tuner Battlegrounds: Battle for SEMA competition are entered in the Round Robin (Qualifying Round) where the Top 32 competitors with the most votes enter the bracket portion of the competition. Weekly match-ups narrow the competitors down to two (2) in early November. An Exclusive VIP SEMA Experience is provided to the Top 2 competitors in the Final Stage (package includes flight, hotel, vehicle shipping and entry to the SEMA Show). In the Final Stage, the Top 2 competitors, along with their vehicles displayed, compete head-to-head at the SEMA Show in a dedicated Tuner Battlegrounds booth directly in front of the main entrance to the Grand Hall. On-site, supporters can text their vote by a simple text2vote system and the winner is announced on Day 4 of the SEMA Show. The Grand Prize: Champion of Tuner Battlegrounds will receive a PASMAG cover feature.
