In Stage 2 of the 2016 Tuner Battlegrounds Championship presented by Niche Road Wheels, Autodip and BFGoodrich, the Top 32 #TBGLIVE and Top 32 #WILDCARD competitors will compete head-to-head in a bracket-style knockout. Online voting takes place between September 13, 2016 (12:00 PM EDT) and September 19, 2016 (12:00 PM EDT) to narrow the total number of competitors to 32 at the end of Stage 2. The winner of each battle will advance to Stage 3: Top 32. Your vote matters!
The 2016 Tuner Battlegrounds Championship bracket tournament facilitated by PASMAG will take the top 2 (two) Tuner Battlegrounds Competitors to the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV on November 1-4, 2016 to compete head-to-head for a PASMAG cover feature + a custom set of wheels from Niche Road Wheels! Between September 6, 2016 and October 18, 2016, online voting will take place to narrow the final competitors to 2 (two), one round (Stage) after another. Seeding for the 2016 Tuner Battlegrounds Championship begins immediately, and inclusion and placement for the Top 64 depends on votes earned throughout the 2016 Tuner Battlegrounds #TBGLIVE season (February 1, 2016 - September 5, 2016). The #TBGLIVE competitors will be seeded 1 to 32 in relation to their total number of votes accumulated in the 2016 Tuner Battlegrounds #TBGLIVE season, while the remaining 32 will be decided in the #WILDCARD competition of Stage 1: Elimination.

*(A) - Advances to next stage
The competitors with the highest quantity of votes in each battle at the end of Stage 2 will advance to Stage 3.
HOW TO ADVANCE TO THE NEXT STAGE?
Competitors must obtain votes at www.tunerbattlegrounds.com. Rather than PASMAG's internal staff acting as judges to select the winners, that responsibility will fall in the hands of the audience (the fans, show-goers and friends and family of the competitors). With a click of a button, the audience will be able to vote and choose their winners one Stage after another. In Stage 1: Elimination, the 32 #WILDCARD competitors with the highest number of votes will advance to Stage 2: Top 64. In Stages 2-6, the competitor with the highest number of votes in each Battle will advance.
HOW TO VOTE?
In the elimination stages, visitors to the Tuner Battlegrounds website simply log-in with their existing Facebook account credentials using the integrated Facebook Login widget. Once logged in, visitors can vote for their favorite competitor(s) by clicking the star on the top of a competitor profile page when enabled (see SCHEDULE below). Voting is limited to 1(one) vote per Facebook account per 24 hours of the posted qualified competitors. In the Final Stage, create a new post (text, photo, video) on Instagram and/or Twitter using the announced hashtag. Voting is limited to 1 (one) vote per Instagram/Twitter account. Vote totals reset to 0 (zero) at the end of each stage.
The Top Two (2) competitors will battle against each other on-site by gathering votes at a dedicated PASMAG Tuner Battlegrounds booth (#20125; Central Hall) at The SEMA Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV on November 1-4, 2016. Similar to previous stages, the competitors are encouraged to campaign for votes by generating a new post on Instagram and/or Twitter with a dedicated hashtag, which is announced before the final stage of voting.
