Drivers' Choice Award Recap

Top finishers in RCN's Drivers' Choice Awards revealed

Last year we embarked on a fresh idea to recognize the top products and services in the replica, kit and home-built scene. We dubbed it the RCN Drivers' Choice awards, because they're voted on by you — the project car patrons, grease monkeys and gentleman drivers we cater to. We asked companies to nominate themselves and ultimately posted a list of 21 categories ranging from complete kits and rollers, to dealers, crate engine suppliers, hand-tool brands and more. We were elated with the nominations and number of votes we received, and we presented roughly 30 Drivers’ Choice Award certificates to some of the top finishers at the SEMA Show — and had great time doing it!

We'll be rolling out a bigger and better Drivers' Choice Award program here in 2020, and thanks to all who voted to make our awards a success! Take a minute to look through our photos with top finishers from the 2019 SEMA Show, and the full list of categories and top finishers is listed below.
