Grand National Roadster Show
Special Awards

 

ELIGIBILITY FOR SPECIAL AWARDS

The following breakdown shows an individual entry’s eligibility for Special Awards. All awards may not be given at individual events if, in the opinion of the judging supervisor, the quality does not deserve recognition. No entry may win two similar awards at any one event. Example; two paint awards, two display awards, etc. An entry that wins Sweepstakes in Category becomes ineligible to win additional awards that pertain directly to the entry. Example; Outstanding Interior, Outstanding Engine, Outstanding Paint, etc. Boats compete for custom engine and interior and competition engine and interior depending if they are in a custom or competition boat class but do not compete for Sweepstakes Awards. Restored vehicles compete for Outstanding Interior and Outstanding Engine awards in the Custom, Truck, or Rod category, depending on the type vehicle and year break.
