STILLWATER, USA – This fall KICKER® will get involved with car-audio competition as a sponsor of the USACi World Finals, held this year at the J.S. Bridwell Event Center in Wichita Falls, Texas October 7-8.
KICKER is also attending the event in support of performance-battery company JY Power. The lithium-battery manufacturer will soon unveil a new KICKER-equipped SPL vehicle, dubbed “The Cube.”
USACi Executive Director Jenissa Lillard expects a sizeable turnout to the event.
“Last year we had over 200 entries, and this year we think it’s going to be higher,” Lillard said. “Competitors have registered from 47 of the 50 states and Mexico. Spectators have registered from as far as South Africa to see the Finals.
Over 80 trophies and nearly 40 first place rings will be awarded at the event. The KICKER and JY Power logos will be featured on the side of every first-place ring, as will the competitor’s name. The rings, described as “Super-Bowl Size”, are valued at over $18,000 in total.
KICKER owns a rich history in audio competition, earning hundreds of sound-quality (SQ) and sound-pressure-level (SPL) trophies during the 1990s and early 2000s.
“We are thrilled to see car-stereo competition experiencing a resurgence,” says Kip Litsey, Associate Marketing Director for KICKER. “As the size of the crowds and competitors continue to grow, we are looking forward to supporting the sport we all love – now and in the future.”
KICKER will also support the Unified Finals in Louisville, Ky., October 14-15, and the Midwest SPL Finals in Sedalia, Mo., October 28-29.
