This year, TigerDirect will host two separate races during CES: the National Finals, which will determine who will win the consumer portion, and the traditional PC Race which will be open to editors. Since its inception, TigerDirect has provided over $2.5 million in cash and computer equipment to schools and non-profit organizations through the race.
