With the championship, NLEX-SCTEX has been ushered into the Hall of Fame of Baguio City’s Panagbenga Festival Grand Float Competition. Earlier, it had won the two consecutive titles since 2015. The Manila North Tollways Corporation (MNTC), builder and concessionaire of the NLEX-SCTEX, is a staunch supporter of the Panagbenga Festival since 2010. Themed as “Beauty of the Wild,” the NLEX-SCTEX float captured this year’s Panagbenga theme, ‘Inspired by Beauty, Nurtured by Nature,’ with a safari-inspired design.
