The Steel Market Development Institute and the Texas Auto Writers Association Team Up for Annual Texas Truck Rodeo

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the fourth consecutive year, the Steel Market Development Institute (SMDI), a business unit of the American Iron and Steel Institute, is the title sponsor of the annual Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) Texas Truck Rodeo, taking place Oct. 15 -17 at the Longhorn River Ranch in Dripping Springs, Texas.  

"TAWA is proud to welcome SMDI back for a fourth year of keeping steel in the conversation of our marquee Texas Truck Rodeo event,” said Nic Phillips, president, TAWA. “SMDI’s long commitment to our efforts has contributed greatly to making the Texas Truck Rodeo the greatest and most competitive consumer vehicle event in the country.” 

“Trucks, SUVs and CUVs are saturating the market right now and there is no better venue than the Texas Truck Rodeo for OEMs to showcase the performance of their top-selling vehicles,” said Jody Hall, vice president, automotive market, SMDI. "These vehicles incorporate advanced high-strength steel in various applications demonstrating its great strength and durability at the highest value to the consumer.”

The Truck Rodeo is an annual event bringing journalists from throughout Texas and the U.S. to evaluate the nation’s top trucks and SUVs. Writers recognize excellence in several categories, including selecting the year’s coveted “Truck of Texas.”
