The judging will be conducted by a panel of judges in a fair and impartial manner in accordance with the following:

  1. The judges will use a scoring system designed to place high priority on quality.
  2. Speed itself is not scored, but volume of work completed is a factor.
  3. Each judge will individually inspect each vehicle and assign scores to each category that applies to that match round.
  4. The total scores for each contestant will be averaged to determine the match winners.
  5. In most matches, there will be a variance both in the quality and volume of work performed.
