DOW Electronics Presents Its Toy Truck Build Off 2015

DOW Electronics has announced the DOW Electronics’ Toy Truck Build Off 2015. The build off will have six regional car audio retailers competing to build a custom 12-volt battery-powered ride on top truck that features car audio equipment from major manufacturers. The competition will be decided by consumers voting for their favorite custom toy truck at Spring Break Nationals 2015.  

DOW Electronics and their sponsoring manufacturers, including Sony, Kenwood, Arc Audio, Rockford Fosgate, Blues, Metra, and Mobile Solutions, have provided the six competing retailers with a power toy truck vehicle and car audio products to complete their builds. The rules of the competition require retailers to use the products supplied by the participating manufacturers and have the products fully functioning. Retailers are free to customize the vehicles as much as they like beyond using the sponsored products. 

The completed builds will be displayed at Spring Break Nationals March 21 and 22 in Daytona Beach, Fla. Spectators at Spring Break Nationals on Saturday, March 21 will vote to determine which retailer wins a $500.00 credit with DOW Electronics plus a trophy commemorating the feat.

“DOW wanted to do something fun with our retailers that allowed them to be creative and allowed us to share their designs with the public,” stated Mike Barcia, DOW 12 Volt strategic sales manager. “We want to promote the great craftsmanship of our retailers with the consumers visiting Spring Break Nationals this year. This is great exposure for our retailers and after the competition they get to display these custom built power toy trucks in their showrooms.”

The retailers participating in DOW Electronics’ Toy Truck Build Off 2015 are Area 41 of Kennesaw, Ga.; Audio Designs & Custom Graphics of Jacksonville, Fla.; Jimmy’s Car Stereo of Montgomery, Ala.; Kimball’s Mobile Electronics of Savannah, Ga.; Sonus Car Audio of Clarksville, Tenn.; and Sounds Good Stereo of Miami, Fla. Retailers have been asked to post updates of their builds to their social media pages to build anticipation before the completed vehicles are displayed.
