It takes some stones to open up a car contest to every car imaginable, and Auto Meter has done it with Winning Ride. Coined as the “Ultimate Online Car Show Community” contest, the winner of the Winning Ride will have his or her hand-built machine at Auto Meter’s booth at SEMA in 2011. Be it a custom sled, a hot rod, a classic muscle car, a truck, an import, a sportscar or a van (gasp!), all entries are welcomed.

What does it take to enter? Nothing. Just join the community. Your profile is your entry. Simply upload best shots of your got that you’ve got. There, Auto Meter’s panel of judges will select a winner for an all-expenses paid trip for two – and transport for your car from anywhere in the lower 48 states – to Las Vegas. Sorry, Alaska. You didn’t make the cut.

Once here, your car will be featured in the Auto Meter booth in the main hall. Pretty cool, right? Wait, there’s more. Auto Meter will build a custom one-of-a-kind set of gauges for your car and you’ll also get to be on the cover of the catalog. Oh yeah, you’ll also get to run a few laps around the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in a NASCAR Sprint Cup car.
