Why Young SMOTY?

2022 will mark the 34th year of our Milwaukee Street Machine of the Year (SMOTY) competition. It is the richest prize in our sport and, in many ways, the most difficult to win. To be eligible, you must bookmark an article in the magazine and then be selected from the 16 finalists by our judging panel. But to win, your car must get the most votes from the general public – becoming the most popular new build in the country.

SMOTY ranks alongside the street machine Summernats Grand Champion and MotorEx Grand Master as the highest accolades an Australian modified car manufacturer can aspire to. These are important awards that focus on the sport and help it evolve and grow.

But for several years, the street machine The team thought about what we could do to encourage young fans of modified cars to step up and get more involved in the sport.

That’s why we’re extremely excited to launch the inaugural Milwaukee Young Street Machine of the Year (YSMOTY) award.

YSMOTY is open to anyone under the age of 25 (as of December 31, 2022), and unlike SMOTY, it is not necessary to have had a street machine feature.

Any kind of car is fair game – Drift Cars, Mini Trucks, Exhausted Cars, Time Attack Weapons, JDM Hotties, Customs, Hot Rods, 4x4s, Restos and Machines street people are all welcome.

The winner will receive $2,500 in cash and a bunch of cool Milwaukee merchandise, and there will also be a $2,500 cash prize for one lucky voter. The winning car will be presented in street machine and we’ll be hosting a car show to celebrate the win and hand out the award.

Our vision is that Milwaukee Young Street Machine of the Year will appeal to the widest possible group of young people and help ensure a healthy future for our sport for decades to come.
