SEMA – Day 4

Friday, November 6th, 2009

It’s hard to believe that SEMA 2009 is coming to an end. Yet again, Las Vegas has provided the perfect backdrop for this showcase of the specialty automotive industry.

Don’t worry – we won’t be letting up just because today is the last day of the show. Miller’s booth (#23813) in the Racing & Performance pavilion will be busy all day with welding demonstrations and some of the newest equipment for the home hobbyist and motorsports user.

Have you entered to win your free ArcStation yet? There is still time, but don’t wait much longer: www.MillerWelds.com/SEMA.

Also – just because SEMA 2009 is coming to a close, that doesn’t mean we’re going to put away our car gear until next year. Miller is committed to the motorsports and custom automotive industries. You can interact with us all year at our motorsports forum on our website. We’re always happy to answer any questions you have about anything you can strike an arc to.

Day 3 of SEMA 2009 begins and we’re loving every minute of it. The first two days have brought a flood of people through the Miller booth and onto the show floor. We’ve seen a little bit of everything: hot rod aficionados, off road racers, custom bike builders, tributes to musical acts such as Cheap Trick and Brooks & Dunn, and some of the most passionate automotive and motorsports people you’ll find everywhere.
