Steele Rubber Products Sponsors Master Builder Award

The 53rd Annual World of Wheels, AutoRama, and Cavalcade of Customs Car Show kicks off November 23-25 in Houston, TX.  Steele Rubber Products is sponsoring the Master Builder Award given to one outstanding vehicle built with little or no professional help.

“Steele is honored to sponsor this award because it rewards the efforts of real car guys.  It’s aligned with our company’s history and values,” explained Matt Agosta, President Steele Rubber Products.

This is the first year the Denver, NC Company is sponsoring the Master Builder Award, after successfully sponsoring the Preservation Award last year.

“We love to see cars built by guys in their garages at home. This is what the industry is about and how Steele Rubber Products was founded. The Preservation Award last year went to a great builder in Michigan and we thought this year we want to reward others in the industry.  We want to let them know they are being recognized for keeping the hobby alive,” Agosta added.

Steele Rubber Products has been manufacturing quality rubber parts and weatherstrip for classic vehicles and hot rods for 55 years.  It is a family-owned and operated business in Denver, NC.

Autorama will travel to 15 different locations across 12 states and two countries. Each show will feature its own schedule of events and thousand’s in cash and awards. There is a $50 entry fee for vehicles competing in Houston, TX but no additional fees to compete for the Steele Rubber Products Master Builder Award.  Show schedule includes a tribute to the Batmobile, Car Auction, and other activities for car-enthusiast and family.

The International Car Show Association (ISCA) will be the sanctioning body for the series and will handle the tracking of the results and standings, as well as supervise the judging staff.
