#TCMBestof2019 – Finish Line Vinyl Design Best Looking Car Award Results
The Eighth Annual Finish Line Vinyl Design Best Looking Car Awards produced two new winners. The Best Looking Late Model Award was a battle between returning teams to the final ballot looking for their breakthrough win in the award while the Best Looking Support Class Car battle featured a finish that has only happened one other time in the history of the award.

SCORING EXPLAINED: 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 13 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.
