The program will include automakers such as Audi of America, FCA, GM, American Honda Motor Company, Mercedes-Benz USA, and Toyota Motor Sales, USA, combined with leading representatives from the steel and aluminum industries and others. Registration is required, and can be selected as a stand-alone event or as part of the RDE Full Series Pass.
