NEW CUMBERLAND, WV (07.09.2018) – The SQology Steel Valley VII will fill the HARV Arena at the Mountaineer Casino and Resort on July 28th and 29th. The event features 3X MECA SQ and SPL, IASCA SQ 3X, ISPLL 3X and DB Drag 1X. A Top 30 Showdown, with over $5,000 in prizes, will be evaluated by 6 SQ Judges for each vehicle. The 6 judges, using their own material, is the ultimate evaluation of SQ in the tradition of the Georgia Masters.

Larry Chijner, the force behind the event stated, “Holding the event in the HARV Arena at the Mountaineer Resort is a tremendous opportunity for car audio enthusiasts to compete in MECA, IASCA and dBDragRacing formats.” Larry has come out of retirement and now competes in his 2014 BMW 4-Series in IASCA Ultimate SQ and MECA Master Class SQ and Install.



An IASCA 3X sanctioned MotoSounds motorcycle SQ format has been added to the competition lineup. The MotoSounds SQ competition is Sunday only and registration is $30. ISPLL 3X SPL Format is on Sunday Only. Competing at the Steel Valley Regional will qualify MotoSounds competitors for the IASCA World Finals in Louisville KY the weekend of October 15th. Rules for MotoSounds SQ can be found on the IASCA website.

The Mountaineer Casino attracts over 10,000 visitors each day and the HARV Arena is just a short walk. Attracting many of those visitors to the HARV can put car audio in front of a large number of consumers.
