#TCMBestof2020 – Ninth Annual Finish Line Vinyl Design Best Looking Car Award Results

The Ninth Annual Finish Line Vinyl Design Best Looking Car Award returned to a single award in 2020, combining what was a split award among Late Model and Support Class cars. A mix of Best Looking Car mainstays and newcomers looked to grab the attention of the panelists and the fans to take the award.

Finish Line Vinyl Design Best Looking Car Award Scoring

The nominees for this years award were placed into a Facebook photo album on our Facebook page. 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.
