A limited brand expansion has always been a plan of mine, and I instantly felt this was the perfect place when I arrived,” shares Bruce Piefke, CEO of Caffeine and Octane. “We’re excited to partner with The AutoMotorPlex to introduce the event to Caffeine and Octane fans in the area as well as have a new location to film compelling content for season four of the Caffeine and Octane TV show.”
