SEMA Seeks Young Gun Builders at Formula Drift Long Beach

The SEMA Young Guns Regional Program joins Formula Drift in Long Beach on April 6, 2019 as part of its nationwide search for aspiring, up-and-coming young vehicle builders.

Formula Drift will serve as the second stop of the 2019 SEMA Young Guns Regional Program and will feature 10 builders age 27 or younger competing for a chance to participate in the 2019 SEMA Battle of the Builders competition and showcase their vehicle at the  SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“We’re excited to have the SEMA Young Guns Program join us at our season kickoff of the Formula Drift Black Magic PRO Championship on April 5th and 6th,” said Jim Liaw, President of Formula Drift. “Supporting and discovering new, young talent in the industry is an important initiative that we’re proud to be part of.”

The SEMA Young Guns program includes partnerships with nine venues, with one winner from each venue awarded an all-expenses-paid trip for two to the 2019 SEMA Show, transportation of the winner’s vehicle, a designated feature spot at the Show, and entry into SEMA Battle of the Builders.

“As our only Southern California stop, Formula D’s Long Beach event will be one of the most exciting of the season,” said Ira Gabriel, SEMA VP of Marketing, PR & Communications. “The region has a long history of vehicle customization, and we’re looking forward to discovering some amazing talent at this event.”

The 10 participants will be selected from applicants who enter the Young Guns regional competition at www.semayoungguns.com before March 30, 2019.
