History

Texas Auto Writers Association, Inc.

The Texas Auto Writers Association, Inc. was founded in 1987 by automotive journalists who wanted to provide an avenue of professional growth, development and networking.

These professionals sought to create an automotive event that was unique to Texas, and the result was the "Texas Truck Rodeo". The Rodeo was created by Tim Spell and named by Tom Wolfgang.  Since 1992, the Truck Rodeo has been held annually in places like San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, Granbury and Spring Branch.

In 2003, TAWA created an event for sedans, sports cars, and other vehicles not eligible for the Truck Rodeo. The TAWA Spring Challenge, as it was originally known, was held in the Texas Hill Country near Austin. The Texas Auto Roundup, as the event is called today, is held at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth during the last weekend of April.
