Butler, PA (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
August 10th through 12th marked the Second Annual Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival in Butler, Pennsylvania. With nearly 1,500 participants, Jeepers from across the country came in droves to celebrate Jeep fender flares, Jeep wheels, the history of the Jeep, learn about its creation and progression, and experience the different brands of fun associated with the lifestyle. The festival was packed with events and activities for everyone from the recreational Jeeper to the hardcore wheeler, including the Show ‘n Shine, Ruff ‘n Tuff, Mystery Road Rally, and the Playground and Jeep Team Challenge –sponsored by industry authority on Jeep nerf bars, fender flares, and lift kits, 4Wheel Drive Hardware.
4Wheel Drive Hardware staff members were in attendance for both work and play; a few even stepped up and proved their abilities, winning awards in the Jeep Team Challenge. The challenge consisted of navigating cones while blindfolded, running over small water balloons, a combination of Jeep broomball and basketball, and driving forward and backward onto 6 inch blocks. In the field of 47 competitors, 4Wheel Drive Product Manager Jamey Paine, copiloted by his father Skeeter Paine, took first place! And that’s not all! Salesman Brian Frescura, copiloted by salesman James Blackburn, took fourth place!
Brian Frescura cited the final challenge, parking on the blocks, to be the most fun and challenging as it took some fancy footwork to do it both forward and backward.
According to Jamey Paine, “It was a great time, and I enjoyed sharing the experience with my Dad.”
Both teams received trophies and 4Wheel Drive Hardware gift cards for their outstanding performance. The editors would like to congratulate both teams for showing that the staff not only knows Jeeps inside and out, they can drive them as well. 4Wheel Drive Hardware is already looking forward to next year’s Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival when Jeeps of all years, makes, and models return to the streets of Butler, Pennsylvania.
