Since its inception in 1976, the SEMA Leaders & Legends Gala (formerly known as the SEMA Awards Gala) has recognized and connected industry leaders who share a common passion and love for the industry. Among this year’s honorees are 2024 SEMA Hall of Fame inductees Chris Kersting, Jack Priegel, Les Rudd, and Jon Wyly.

The SEMA Cares Industry Cup Challenge will run in conjunction with the Gala, offering companies an opportunity to sponsor a child-built pinewood racecar and challenge industry colleagues in head-to-head competition. 

The races, which are run throughout the Friday reception, support SEMA Cares, a group that unites the automotive aftermarket to raise funds for various children’s charities, including the Austin Hatcher Foundation, Childhelp, and Victory Junction. 

The Industry Cup Challenge winner will take home a trophy with their company named engraved among past winners, with the trophy to be returned the following year in a Stanley Cup style tradition. Additionally, a SEMA PAC reception will be held immediately following the Gala.
