WINCHESTER BAY, OR (08.09.22) – Brad’s Car Tunes rolled onto Vendor Row at DuneFest 2022 on Monday, August 1st. The RAM pickup pulled a trailer loaded with the demo RZR, tent, inventory and booth supplies from the 90+ mile trip from Brad’s Car Tunes in Eugene OR. Lorin Morrell, Maddog_Media, rolled into the vendor area pulling a trailer filled with a KICKER RZR, tents, banners and supplies. DuneFest 2022 filled the Winchester Bay dunes from August 1st thru August 7th.
KICKER was on hand supporting longtime DuneFest sponsor and authorized KICKER dealer Brad’s Car Tunes. DuneFest is packed with family fun experiences. The official show program stated ‘DuneFest is the most fun a family can have in the sand’. Activities at DuneFest 2022 proved that to be true again in 2022.
Brad’s Car Tunes was set up in a large area on vendor row with multiple tents, KICKER Marine display plus demo vehicles for sales presentations and onsite installations. The Brad’s Car Tunes Jeep Gladiator and Polaris RZR were joined with the KICKER RZR. Demo vehicles were Livin’ Loud loaded with KICKER gear. Brad’s Car Tunes staff members included 2 sales and 2 installation techs along with owner Brad Scott. In addition Dave Gates from Falcon Sales worked the booth during DuneFest.
Brad Scott, Brad’s Car Tunes, stated “DuneFest 2022 was a strong event but sales and installations were down a bit from last year. On many occasions we would have 4 or 5 UTV’s getting installations in our area at one time. We definitely look forward to DuneFest 2023 next August.”
Morrell stated “DuneFest is always such an exciting event. 2022 was my 14th year to attend DuneFest and watch it grow over the years to the point of over 20,000 in attendance and thousands of UTVs. Working with the event announcers and good friends, we could all feel the excitement and enthusiasm from all on site. The placed a ton of KICKER banners around the venue and on ramps. Brad’s Car Tunes saw the KICKER PowerBars as hot sellers. In addition they sold and installed multiple complete systems each day. Having dinner and time with the Brad’s crew one night added to the overall DuneFest 2022 experience.”
Long-jump contests, treasure hunt and multiple races across the dunes offered riders plenty to try from sunup until sundown. When the evening set in there were night rides plus live music on Friday and Saturday nights. On the sold out campgrounds there were acres and acres of RV’s and campers.
