Modify - Tune - Compete - Win
Automotive enthusiasts compete at events on a weekly basis. Not only does it take time, money, motivation and dedication to modify and tune their vehicles, enthusiasts also pour resources into attending, displaying and competing with their vehicles at events. Tuner Battlegrounds is an annual bracket-style tournament facilitated by PASMAG online at www.tunerbattlegrounds.com. Here's the spin - rather than PASMAG staff alone selecting the 'Best of' show winners as judges, the responsibility is shared with the audience (the fans, show-goers, friends and family of the competitors). With a click of a button or a text from a cell phone, the audience will be able to vote and choose who they think should win, from one Stage (Round) after another.
2015 TUNER BATTLEGROUNDS: LIVE BATTLES
2015 Tuner Battlegrounds: LIVE (#TBGLIVE) Battles provide regional competing opportunities for event promoters and competitors. Competitors that wish to participate in #TBGLIVE must first be pre-registered to compete in the #TBGLIVE affiliated events. Online voting takes place the week leading up to the #TBGLIVE affiliated event to narrow the final competitors to two. At the actual event, the two Finalists battle head-to-head by encouraging their supporters to text their vote (short code) to a competitor-dedicated telephone number. A one vote per cell phone limit applies and ensures that the vehicle with the most true supporters wins.
Tuner Battlegrounds: LIVE Battle winners receive a PASMAG mini-feature in print.
