Spring Break Nationals 2016: Daytona Beach or Bust
When you think of prime Spring Break locations, a few cities come to top of your mind. One of them is, and always will be, Daytona Beach, Florida. It’s one of the only places you can drive your truck around on the sand and just feet from the beautiful waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Right off that very same beach at the expansive Ocean Center was a custom truck show celebrated a milestone 30th year. Having humble beginnings as a small parking-lot exhibition, the Spring Break Nationals has flourished and steadily grown to become one of the largest and longest running stereo and audio shows. Throughout the tenure of Spring Break Nationals, the amount of vehicles displayed has increased, and the quality of builds has improved. What started as just customized imports sporting loud stereos, now encompasses all types of vehicles, including both lowered and lifted trucks displaying high-powered stereo installs. Classes were held in conference rooms for dealers and vendors to learn more about products being released. When the show ended for the day, trucks spilled out into the streets of Daytona Beach, and another show took place as owners cruised around showing off their impressive rides. Continuing with last year’s schedule, Saturday was spectator day and more than 10,000 people were on hand looking throughout the spacious Ocean Center. Sunday was open to dealers and vendors only in the main hall to focus on the industry attendees.
Show promoter Paul Papadeas wished to thank all the loyal vendors and participants who showed their support and made the Spring Break Nationals 2016 a successful event. The 31st annual show is already in the works. Rumor has it, the show will be moved to the Daytona Speedway, which would make it the largest stereo venue on the East Coast.
