“It was great to see many veterans of our sport coming out to support the show” said Moe Sabourin, Director of Operations for IASCA Worldwide, “There were also a lot of new faces in both the SPL and SQ lanes, which was exciting. I feel the best part of the show was watching many veterans assisting the newcomers, helping them to tune vehicles or just giving them advice on how to succeed in competition; this is what will help our industry grow, veterans passing on their knowledge to the next breed of car audio competitor. Competition is fun and rewarding, but education is critical for our future success.”

Hosting SBN at the Daytona Speedway has been well received by competitors and spectators; with the SPL lanes in the turn 1 and 2 area, and the sound quality competition in the garage area, it allows for each to compete at the noise level needed.

After a four-day trek and some quality time with my Dad I finally got my first glimpse of Las Vegas.
