Spring Break Nationals 2017 Spring Turkey Run main

By popular demand the 31st Annual Spring Break Nationals Car Audio Expo will be held at the Daytona International Speedway on March 24-26, 2017 in conjunction with the Spring Turkey Run, (STR) a car show that draws in excess of 15,000 consumers. According to SBN Founder Paul Papadeas, “This move makes a lot of sense. We’ve been talking about doing this for years. With our industry’s demographics skewing to a more mature audience and further away from the youthful male, STR is a great place to breed consumer awareness. Car guys in attendance from the southeast region and beyond come to Daytona with vehicles of all types; customs, classics, muscle cars, hot rods and tuners as well. The Spring Turkey Run event always took place one week after SBN and consistently draws the crowds that are now who we see in our retail stores”.

The event is a three-day exhibit (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) with 2 days (Saturday and Sunday) dedicated to Soundoff competitions. Manufacturers interested in exhibiting Sound Quality will take front row ahead of the Blue Garages on a Speedway main drag. IASCA and MECA Sound Q Competitions will happen in this same area. The SPL Manufacturers will be positioned in the infield on Turn 2 amid the SPL competition area. All factions will exhibit to the folks that frequented SBN as well as the hordes of spectators of the Turkey Run Car Show. “We’ll still keep the extreme SPL noise in check” cites Papadeas, “but SPL will be on the grass in the infield so that will assist in muting extreme sound. “This is a golden opportunity to finally reach more consumers than we would ever hope to see at any SBN of late”

IASCA, MECA, dB Drag Racing and ISPLL will be onsite hosting the Competition Season Kickoff. Their SPL competitions will be located in the infield at Daytona International Speedway at Turn 2, while the Blue Garages next to Pit Row will host Sound Quality competition vehicles registered in IASCA and MECA Sound Quality competitions.

Cruising down the coast of California along interstate 5, modified car after modified car began to pass by and while getting further into San Diego they began to multiply.

If you’ve ever been on the Waterfest tour before, then a lot of what you read next is going to sound familiar. The alarm goes off around 5:30 AM, you take a quick shower, wake your buddies up off the couch and start going through the official Waterfest Kruize check list. “Full tank of gas. Check. Passports. Check. Loose change for the tolls. Check. Case of red bull. Double Check!” You’ve covered the essentials and now it’s time to make it to stop number one, Johnston Research and Performance (JRP) headquarters in Mississauga, Ontario.

Motion Auto Show & Expo 2011

The Team at ProMotion Distributing has once again out done themselves by bringing us the 2011 Motion Auto Show at the Long Beach Convention Center. Entering the 5th year, they're seasoned in packing the convention centre with hot cars, hot girls, and tones of attendees. Any spectator walking through the show this year would agree, the vibe had a “tuner-enthusiast lifestyle” feel – something HIN had done in years previous – and somehow, a corporate touch in the realm of something such as SEMA. In all, there were 125 vendors displaying the latest products, 300 SEMA-show-worthy rides fighting for trophies,…

CES 2015: Las Vegas, NV

BACK TO THE FUTURE. The Consumer Electronics Show was a shock to the system. Yes, there were crazy, new innovations shown that might make your life easier and sound better, but I’m talking about the sheer enormity of this place. I have been fortunate enough to do both of the biggest trade shows in the world, in one year. After SEMA, I was under the impression that I was the king of the Las Vegas Convention Center. I’m also a huge nerd, so these were my people. I walked into Central Hall thinking, ‘Let me at ’em! I’ve conquered SEMA…
