#TCMBestof2018 – Finish Line Vinyl Design Best Looking Car Results

One of our longest running awards, the Finish Line Vinyl Design Best Looking Car Award, has found winners. For the second straight year, the award honors two cars – one Late Model and one from the support classes in Atlantic Canada.

Who topped the list of our panelists and our fans? Find out below!

Finish Line Vinyl Design Best Looking Car Awards

The nominees for this years award were placed into a Facebook photo album on our Facebook page, separated by division – Late Model and Support Class. A panel of 12 from outside the region whom are seeing the cars for the first time, had the chance to pick their favorite five cars, in no particular order. Each car they selected received one panel vote. The five cars that received the most panel votes are placed into the Fan Vote portion of the award.

As in previous years, the fan vote is worth 50% of scoring for this award. The panel’s final overall tally will count for the other half. The car which scores the most points over the two halves will win the award.

Ties are broken by the car who finished higher in the panel vote.
