The American automobile celebrated its 100th birthday in 1996. To mark the milestone, the Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus was formed to pay tribute to America’s ever-growing love affair with the car and motorsports. Nearly 20 years later, the caucus continues to raise the industry’s profile in the nation’s capital and in the public’s eyes.
Today, the caucus is helmed by Representatives Bill Posey (R-FL) and Sander Levin (D-MI) in the U.S. House and Senators Richard Burr (R-NC) and Jon Tester (D-MT) in the U.S. Senate. Thanks to their leadership, the group is growing faster than ever before. This year alone, nine new members signed up to show their support for the industry.
