The show is going to take place on Friday, March 12th, 2021 at the Broken Spoke Saloon. This is your chance to show your stuff off live and in person.
This show is for amateur builders only. Yes, we like pro-built bikes as much as anyone else but they have many other shows that they can participate in to display their skills. No professionally built motorcycles will be allowed in the show.
This show is for you, the person who didn’t build it to make money but rather for the fun and self-satisfaction of being able to say…I did it myself and I’m really proud of it!
It doesn’t matter if it is mild or wild, as long as you did it yourself. If you built a ground-up custom in your garage, we want to see it. If you heavily modified a stock motorcycle we want to see your bike too. In fact, even if you just bolted on some cool stuff and tweaked your basic stock ride to make it your own come on over to the Broken Spoke Saloon and show it off. V-Twins, Metrics, Trikes, Cafes, Rats, or any other cool rides are encouraged to participate.
What do you get for being in the Garage Build Show? First and foremost, the opportunity to show off your pride and joy! You will get a free swag bag full of goodies, a chance at trophies, and gift cards. There is no entry fee whatsoever. All you have to do is show up and you’re in the show.
Chris and Heather Callen from Cycle Source will be joining us for the 3rd Annual Daytona show.
Heather Callen – Managing Editor
Heather Callen will say she is the new kid on the block at Cycle Source, but in truth, she is a well-seasoned veteran of the motorcycle industry with over a decade behind her before she even joined the CS staff. Starting with the Broken Spoke Saloon, she rose through the ranks from the head of security to general manager, where she oversaw 5 locations, which included the 600 acres Broken Spoke campground in Sturgis SD. As her time came to an end with the sale of Broken Spoke, she moved on to the Cycle Source ranks. At first, she was in charge of billing administration. Still, she quickly learned the ropes and now is responsible for much of the entire operation from Event Activations, PR & Marketing, and all graphic and editorial contributions of the print magazine. Additionally, Heather has become one of the three regular hosts featured on ShopTalk, cycle Source Magazine’s Weekly Multi-Cast. As Cycle Source Enters its 24th Year of publishing, Heather continues to contribute to the new business model that breaks the barriers of a traditional print magazine and makes it a well rounded multi-media company.
Chris Callen – Editor In Chief
While Chris hasn’t had the benefit of secondary education, he was born with a passion for motorcycles. With that fueling his desire to contribute to the motorcycle industry, he launched Cycle Source Magazine from the back of his aftermarket parts shop 23 years ago. On a borrowed computer, 24 glorious pages came to life and were freely circulated within a 100-mile radius of his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. Every thirty days since March of 1997, Chris has continued to improve Cycle Source, in page count, paper quality, and content until 2005 when the magazine ceased free distribution and entered the national newsstand. Over time print media and the consumer’s habits involving it changed and Chris always seems to be at the forefront of any new technology that can up. From web content to video shorts through companies he started like Rally TV and then Grease & Gears TV, Callen continued to improve the reach of his content while the newsstand was falling off. Event activations where CS Staff host bike shows, races, bike games, and mini bike events became another big part of their operations. It was these events that gave birth to the idea of Grease & Gears Garage where bike builders and parts manufacturers would join CS on stage at major rally venues and show their craft. Callen added in the component of streaming it live, some of the first content of its kind in the motorcycle world, and the program became a fast success. Then in 2017, Callen launched the weekly simulcast “ShopTalk” that quickly became a live weekly version of the magazine with interviews, tech tips, and motorcycle news. Most recently, he saw the need of his community during the COVID pandemic for people just to take a break and, with the help of his staff and friends throughout the industry, developed the Cyber Show And Rally, the world’s first-ever virtual bike show and motorcycle rally. As fewer motorcycle magazines occupy the newsstands, Callen feels that with the new business model Cycle Source has developed, they are in no danger of going anywhere but out into the world to collect more content.
Rusty Wallace will also be joining us for the 3rd Annual Daytona Bike Week Show.
For nearly 40 years, racing legend Rusty Wallace has delighted racing fans not only with his hard-nosed and aggressive approach to racing, but also with a personality and charisma that are unmatched in the sport.
Wallace—the 1989 NASCAR Cup Series Champion, 1984 Rookie of the Year and 55-time Cup Series race winner—will go into history as one of NASCAR’s finest drivers. For 16 straight seasons, Wallace won at least one race in NASCAR’s Cup Series, marking the third-longest such streak in history. At the time of his retirement in 2005, Wallace’s 55 victories marked the eighth-best all-time total and his nearly 20,000 laps led ranked seventh all-time.
Wallace’s on-track success was not limited just to NASCAR, however; he is also a former winner of the International Race of Champions (IROC). In 1991, he bested many of the world’s greatest drivers for the series title, becoming the only driver in history to win three of the series’ four events in a single season.
Rusty’s accomplishments both on and off the track have been widely recognized. He is a member of the NASCAR Hall of Fame, the International Motorsports Hall of Fame, the National Motorsports Press Association (NMPA) Hall of Fame and the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America.
As one of the main protagonists during NASCAR’s meteoric commercial rise of the 1990s and 2000s, Wallace is often credited as being one of the catalysts behind the mainstream appeal the sport enjoys today. At the NASCAR awards ceremony in 2005, he was presented the NMPA Myers Brothers Award, given for outstanding lifetime contributions to the sport of stock car racing.
Wallace’s more recent undertakings have allowed him to continue putting his vast knowledge and charismatic personality to work. In 2006, he was named Lead Auto Racing Analyst for ABC and ESPN, providing analysis for the networks’ 2006 and 2007 broadcasts of the Indianapolis 500. He went on to headline the networks’ return to NASCAR in 2007 and maintained that role through their exit from the sport at the end of the 2014 season. Currently, Wallace serves as Lead Analyst for MRN Radio—the Voice of NASCAR—where he is heard on more than 700 affiliates nationwide, as well as on Sirius XM Radio.
In addition to his racing analysis, Wallace remains an active competitor, as owner of Rusty Wallace Racing, which has fielded entries in the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series.
Rusty is also active in other business pursuits. In 2005, he became the first driver in recent history to design a professional racing facility, when he inked the plans for the 7/8-mile Iowa Speedway. The facility opened to rave reviews and currently hosts rounds of the NASCAR Xfinity Series, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the IRL Indycar Series.
Wallace is a sought-after public speaker and the principal stakeholder in the Rusty Wallace Automotive Group, a collection of eight automotive dealerships located in eastern Tennessee.
Aside from his business interests, Wallace is also a board member of The NASCAR Foundation—the sport’s foremost charity initiative. In that role, he serves on the foundation’s development committee, charged with fundraising for the foundation’s mission of helping children live, learn and play.
While he remains as intense as ever, Rusty Wallace’s hobbies include golf and flying—he is an avid pilot with nearly 12,000 flight hours. Wallace has three adult children and resides near Charlotte, NC with his wife, Patti.
