Just called Benchmark, Alpha Omega and Sundown One today to see if there are an local comps this year. AO and Benchmark said nothing set in stone yet.

Sundown One is allowing one of the car clubs to have a car meet/show/audio comp on June 20th.

They said they are going to see how this show goes to kind of test the waters, then they'll decide if they want to have any official comps.

If you want to see more local comps in Springfield, come to the show! Probably wouldn't hurt to call them and let them know you're interested too.

alpha omega probably wont be having many if any shows this year. theres just not big enough turn outs for mike to have any around here these days.

the only people that show up anyway are vehicles that he built. I'm just not a big fan of driving 2 hours to either get to quincy or St. Louis for comps, I'd like to have some more local

he said they MIGHT have one around Labor Day, but they're not sure yet. Benchmark said they might have one in September or October. I like the Benchmark comps :)

And this is why you miss seeing big named competitors. Sundown 1, never heard of it. When I was younger I lived next to Sundown Car Stereo on 5th street:confused:

I never said I won't do it ;) I just want to have some closer shows as well. I'll be going to all the Quincy shows this year for sure. One every month through October.

I'm relatively new to car audio, but from what I understand, Sundown closed down for some reason or another, Sundown One is it's replacement

I'm not sure, I went into the shop today. He said it's primarily a car show, I guess the last one this car club put on had a turnout of 2-300 cars. But he said they will be running a mic and there will be trophies.

Just come out for fun, if you are just worried about posting a TL number and you're in the area, hit me up. I just bought a TL a few weeks ago. It's not a big deal to mic cars.

Not really worried about, but I will not meter my ride unless it is a term lab. Did "Sundown 1" move into Sundowns old building then???

From what I understand, they're the same people that ran Sundown? don't quote me on that though, I'm not sure

Sundown One is on Wabash

no the old building is a used car lot for mercedes and other imports. has been for a long time now. i know for sure one of the guys doesnt install for them anymore. other than that i think its the same people.

Should be a good time, the guys at Sundown One said there should be 200+ cars for the show. 10 bucks to enter the show, 10 for audio comp. All proceeds go to charity. I still don't have an answer as to what mic they'll be running, but it's all for fun and a good cause anyway

I was in there tuesday and the guy said it was just a car show no audio. Also it is the original owners of sundown that run it now (pre-97 owners).

You did know that Sundown One isn't running the show, right? Grounded Customs is using their parking lot. I just messaged the President of GC to make sure they are.

You probably talked to someone in home audio that didn't know it was going to be a car audio comp ;)
