Hot Wheels to crown a champion at SEMA
We’re heading to SEMA for the highly anticipated championship showdown of the 20 regional winners from Mattel’s year-long Hot Wheels Legends Tour. A cast of celebrity judges including Jay Leno, Adam Carolla and others will crown a champion.
The Hot Wheels Legends Tour and its 20 custom vehicle finalists from across the country roll into the SEMA Show in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Nov. 5. This tour will be taking things one giant step further — by turning the 2019 champion’s custom vehicle into an iconic Hot Wheels 1:64 die cast toy car.
The Hot Wheels Legends Tour presented by Mobil 1, Honda, Dickies and Xbox has wowed over 120,000 fans at over 20 events around the globe, in search of a one-of-a-kind car that embodies the brand’s challenger spirit and legendary design.
The good news is that Natalia from Macaroni Kid Summerlin and I (Nannette) will be on site presenting live videos of all the Hot Wheels action. The bad news is that SEMA is an industry-only trade show and not open to the public. But we’ve got you! Stay tuned to Instagram and Facebook on Tuesday, November 5 to join in the fun with us. Send us questions you’d like to ask Hot Wheels designers and the judges from The Hot Wheels Legends Tour.
