DAYTONA BEACH, FL (05.05.22) – Jeep Beach, the nation’s largest Jeep event is a wrap. Between April 24 through May 1st, tens of thousands of participants in their Wranglers conquered the roadways in Daytona Beach. Jeep Beach “Jeepers” enjoyed a multitude of activities in this weeklong event. Across the county, trail riding, scavenger hunts, a 5k run on the beach, food truck festivals, a tour of the Motorsports Hall of Fame; Vendor parties at the Hard Rock and a miles-long parade of Wranglers Sunday morning, were of the most impressive events.
On Wednesday night at the Daytona International Speedway, Soundcrafters, Daytona’s Car Audio Powerhouse, in conjunction with IASCA, kicked off Jeep Beach’s Tiki Tailgate party. A packed house of Show and Shine Jeeps,Vendors and Sound & Light competitors dominated the lot flanking International Speedway Blvd. The 3rd annual Jeep Beats and JeepGlo Sound and Light competitions was judged by Terry Floyd of Soundoff Technologies, along with IASCA Judges Sammy Vega, Tony Pasquale and IASCA President Travis Chin; the judging was completed without a single glitch.
On Friday and Saturday inside the Speedway, preliminary figures reveal more than 230 Vendors, over 60,000 spectators and some 10,000 Jeeps lined the DIS infield. Spectators seated in bleachers viewed Jeepers hurdling over thousands of pounds of dirt and busted-up concrete highway barriers, navigating the obstacle course. Jeep Beach even made a tiny obstacle course for the kiddies that could drive power wheel jeeps over dirt mounts! Other entertaining events included live music, festival food trucks, a new Jeep raffle and more.
Record crowds at the Speedway dominated the mile-long Vendor Midway with manufacturer displays in full regalia. Soundcrafters’ team, in a well-stocked booth, advised consumers on suitable products to purchase culminating in record sales. Soundcrafters’ owner Paul Papadeas conducted an educational seminar with Q&A, speaking about the Wrangler’s acoustical environment and protocols that consumers should know to choose the right components.
“The Jeep Wrangler ownership phenomenon continues to grow and has not come close to peaking, says Papadeas, “It has been enlightening that after purchasing a Jeep a few years ago, I’ve come to find that Jeepers are a community of like-minded individuals. This genre and the consumers that it brings to business, has stimulated many manufacturers’ marketing and product development. If this veteran can offer any advice to the mobile electronics industry, do not miss exhibiting at Jeep Beach 2023” next April.
