The SEMA show is a labor of love in that it takes a lot of hard work to cover it properly, but there are few places on earth we'd rather be. While we often spend 10-12 hours on the show floor looking for the best (and worst) vehicles to post on Autoblog, sometimes we also get the chance to have a little fun.

Across from the press room was a hidden cove with two plasma monitors attached to a pair of XBOX 360s. Continental Tire was hosting an XBOX Challenge, and Forza Motorsport 2 was the chosen battlefield. Our own John Neff typically spends his free time enjoying his console of choice, and Forza 2 is often his disc of choice. Our Editor in Chief jumped at the chance to compete for such prizes as an iPod and a set of high-end Kicker speakers, and we were there to tape the results. Click play to watch the video above, and then hit the jump to see whether John walked away with a prize.

RESULTS: Although John walked away from the XBOX Challenge with a .35 lead over all competitors so far that day, others came in later and wiped Mr. Neff from the leader board. It looks like more time on the Las Vegas track is needed if Neff wants to take the checkered flag.

      Insert "Ditch that Oldsmobile and those video games, and get a real car" joke here.
      • 7 Years Ago
      thats PGR3 guys. which is an ARCADE game, not simulation (a la Forza 2)
        • 7 Years Ago
        Yeah, definitely. You know why, though? Because Forza has no Vegas, and also is a little older, and thus, more even a playing field.

      The Autoblog guys completely ruined there chances with that girl by acting so nerdy.
      • 7 Years Ago
      You definitely are a bunch of car guys and/or video game nerds. 7 comments so far and not a single one about the GIRL in the video who was, you know, well above decent.

      Kudos. I think.

        Well, that's assuming we watched the video in the first place.
