|From Jeep Beach 2011|
Sunshine and warm weather, just what us Michigan boys needed after a long cold winter. Jeremy and Carter from BDS made the trip down to Daytona Beach, FL last weekend for Jeep Beach 2011, hosted by the Mid Florida Jeep Club. With planned events from Wednesday through Sunday, there was plenty to do as nearly 1000 Jeeps made it to the show in rigs build from mild to extreme. BDS set up with local distributor DV8 Motorsports to show off some killer rides at the vendor show on Saturday. Daytona International Speedway was the setting for the vendor show as thousands drove the tunnel under track to hang out in the infield to check out vendors, try out the obstacle course, enter to win raffle prizes, and check out the Nascar teams that practiced out on the track. Despite the unfavorable booth location at the end of vendor row, BDS stayed busy throughout the day talking to customers that stopped by to check out the newest products and the bad ass Jeeps built by the crew at DV8 Motorsports. Among them was 6.1L Hemi-powered JK, 10.5’’ BDS lifted XJ, and 4.5’’ BDS lifted TJ. He had a blast out at the event up until an afternoon storm blew through and tossed numerous display leaving many, including us, to scramble and pick up the pieces before heading to shelter.
Sunday came and the weather was perfect as hundreds of Jeeps headed down to cruise the beach and enjoy the pool party, making for a nice end to a great show, we can’t wait until next year!
