Competitors fall into two categories, professional auto techs already working in the trade full time, and students who are soon to be entering the workforce. A lot is on the line as each category will produce a champion who will take home a $40,000 prize and the title of National Champion. The public is invited to come out to watch all three rounds of the competition, at the Music City Convention Center, the event is free to attend, attendees will receive a wristband allowing them to enter the arena.
