Jay’s Alarm store manager Tyler Hargrave commented to 12voltnews.com, “We were very pleased with the event. There were close to 30 competitors in the parking lot and spectators arrived to check out the activity too. Those spectators really liked the systems and spent time in our showroom – with higher end Rockford products getting attention. The way the series is structured the excitement and interest will grow over the 3 month summer months. We are looking forward to the next event and thank Doug Stockton for organizing the series with support from dB Drag Racing.”
