All three of the 2013 Scion Tuner Challenge tCs are now on the SEMA show floor at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Josh Croll, Young Tea and Walter Franco are the competitors for this year’s Scion Tuner Challenge, which features the Japanese automaker’s tC model rather than last year’s FR-S. Each builder had 90 days and a $15,000 budget to outfit their tCs in hopes of taking home the $10,000 grand prize.

The 2013 SEMA Show will officially kick off tomorrow morning, and judging will take place for all three Scion Tuner Challenge competitors. This year, the competition is teaming up with Super Street magazine and the publication’s editors will also be part of the judging panel. Look for the official announcement of this year’s Scion Tuner Challenge winner later this week.
