Countless hours of hard work, sweat, and painstaking attention to detail were on display at the 2015 SEMA show, as Casey Folk of PDX Wraps and Jamie Mullican of WrapArtist.com were announced as winners at the second annual 3M Wrap2Wrap Battle. Showcasing elite craftsmanship and prowess with 3M™ Wrap Film Series 1080, Folk and Mullican crafted dynamic wraps with installation help from 3M Preferred Graphics Installers John Deuver, Joshua Marquardt, Mingo Richter and Luis Tirado.
The 3M Wrap2Wrap Battle is an open competition between installers of 3M™ Wrap Film Series 1080 throughout the United States, and provided fans the opportunity to get involved by voting for the wrap of their choice. In the first round, every entry was featured. In rounds two through four, contestants were seeded into brackets and competed directly against one other contestant. Winners Folk and Mullican were selected to participate in live wrap installations on the floor of the 2015 SEMA show.
Judged by a powerful panel of experts, both Folk and Mullican’s vehicles were chosen for their compelling story, uniqueness of design, color choices, and overall look and appeal. Judging was presided over by:
• Rutledge Wood, Co-Host of Top Gear and Lost in Transmission
• Jeremy McGrath, AMA Supercross Champion
• “Hot Rod Ali” Youngblood, Hot Rod Race Car Driver
• Steve Hargitai, 2014 Wrap2Wrap Winner
• Adam Sumner, 3M Authorized Trainer
