Beginning in the postwar era, when Hot Rod Magazine showcased the speed industry’s trends, Ed Pink emerged as a premier racing engine builder. From dry lakes and Bonneville to sprint cars, midgets, NHRA drag racing and everything between, Ed Pink set the standard for superior engines and speed!

A roster of new products received the SEMA Best New Products awards. Awards went to large companies, small companies and even fledgling businesses attending the SEMA Show for the very first time! It is a major accomplishment to earn an award in one of the many categories. Businesses value the recognition and benefit from the product exposure.
Each year, SEMA recognizes new vehicles that offer the greatest “trending” appeal. The SEMA Award reflects the popularity of specific cars and trucks for accessorizing and upgrading. At the 2014 SEMA New Products Awards Breakfast, the prestigious awards went to winners in each vehicle category. Join the excitement through this live HD video coverage!
Important to the vehicle manufacturers is the coveted SEMA Award in each new vehicle category. Hottest 4×4/SUV, Hottest Truck, Hottest Car, and Hottest Compact Car, these are the “trending” vehicles that aftermarket manufacturers target for new products. This year, once again, the Hottest 4×4/SUV is the Jeep JK Wrangler that prevailed at display booths across the 2014 SEMA Show floors. Chevrolet Silverado earned the Hottest Truck pick!
