East Coast Bash
May 27-28, 2023
Englishtown Raceway Park
Who’s ready for the 16th Annual EAST COAST BASH!?!?!?
Registration is now open and each group will be limited to 40 drivers per group. Only 2-day registrations will be available. It will be the same $265 price that they have been for over a decade.
B and C group will get the track to themselves to get everyone a ton of seat time and keep the lines down out there. The schedule that we are using will give everyone a ton of seat time each day.
Spectator tickets are $20 for one day or $30 for the whole weekend. Kids under 10 are $5 and kids under 5 are free. Spectator tickets will only be available at the gate.
Sneaky Pete’s will be open serving drinks for all spectators and drivers when they are done for the day. There will be food trucks serving some delicious meals. We will have some shops and other vendors there with some stuff set up. And there’s going to be a bunch of rad cars and people there to hang out with.
4PM – 8PM Early roll-in and tech
Come up on Friday night and get your car dropped off and teched so you can beat the rush on Saturday morning.
Only your drift car and your one support item (truck or trailer) will be allowed in the pits.
Drivers are allowed to camp on Friday night.
Any crew that comes with the drivers on Friday night is required to buy a 2-day spectator ticket.
The gates will be locked at 8PM and there will not be any in/out after that.
If you are planning on pitting with specific people, show up together. We will be jamming people in, so there’s no saving space for some dude that might be there in the next 3 hours. This goes for Friday night and especially Saturday morning.

Read the rules a couple times. No excuses will be taken for dumb stuff that doesn’t pass tech. Changes and additions have been bolded, make sure to pay special attention to those.
Pit Space Guidelines
- Drivers will have space for their car and ONLY one other item (support vehicle, truck or trailer)
- If you trailer your car to the track, you can either keep your truck or your trailer in the pits, the other must be put in spectator parking
- Any drivers who want to pit together, must show up together
- Tents or anything setup for camping must be within your space
- Large trailers may need to be nested in order to optimize space, so if you and a buddy have large trailers, you should come together so we can set you up
- If you try and sneak in extra vehicles after dark on Saturday, you will not be able to drive Sunday.
Pit Rules and Conduct – READ THIS!
- No outside alcohol. Sneaky Pete’s will be stocked.
- You can drink at the bar after you’re done driving.
- Pit speed is 5mph on everything.
- Camping is allowed on Saturday night for drivers.
- No motorized vehicles to be driven in the pits after dark.
- No other vehicles (mopeds, golf carts, scooters, etc) allowed in the pits at all.
- Clean up after yourself.
- No trash jenga, tell someone if the trash can near your pit is full.
- Don’t fuck up the bathrooms or the showers. We don’t have to let you use them.
- Be adults. We have no problem kicking out people who abuse the freedom you get here. We want to have fun too.
- Have fun. It’s ECB after all.
Drivers will be able to camp in the pits on Saturday night. You will be able to set up a tent or something small within the pit space that you are given. So you need to plan things out. Cars cannot be moved into the roads through the pits and block the path.
Spectators CANNOT set up camp inside the pits. Setting up tents in the spectator parking is also not allowed. Just between us, if you’re partying at Sneaky Pete’s all night and can’t drive home, no one will be mad if you go back to your car in the spectator parking and go to sleep. But if you go back to your car and make a ton of noise and cause some other commotion, there’s a very good chance that Englishtown Security will be stopping by to say hi.
And no matter what, if you’re making a lot of noise or being a pain in the ass after Sneaky Pete’s closes at 2AM, you will be leaving. As long as you treat the pits and everyone else and their stuff with respect, there won’t be any issues.

You must be an approved A group driver to register for A. If you are from out of town and you don’t know us, then you’ll need video or someone that we do know to vouch for you. Contact us first before registering. firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPDATE: C Group is full. If you did not sign up and still want to drive add yourself to the waitlist below.
If you have not been bumped to B Group or A Group at an event, you cannot sign up for those groups because your group is full. If that happens, you will be automatically moved to the wait list and will not be able to drive unless a spot opens up.
Registration Cancellation or Change
Because this is a limited space event, our cancellation and transfer policy is different. Any request for a transfer or cancellation needs to be received by Monday, May 22nd at 10AM. Registrations requested to be cancelled will incur a 5% fee. All requests must be emailed to email@example.com and include your information and transaction details. After the event has started, there is nothing that we can do and you will forfeit your registration payment.
REGISTRATION CANNOT BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED TO ANOTHER DRIVER. ALL CHANGES TO REGISTRATION MUST FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES ABOVE. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THOSE GUIDELINES WILL RESULT IN A FORFEITURE OF YOUR PAYMENT.
Note: Facebook messages, Instagram DMs, texts, google hangouts or anything other than email will be ignored. I don’t care that you sent a Facebook message to us about something important, we aren’t reading it.
If you missed registration, you can sign up for the wait list. Using the link below, add your name, email and the day/group that you want to sign up for. If a spot opens and you are next on the list, you will get an email with a link and the amount of time that the spot will be available to you. If you do not register by the time specified, we will move to the next name on the list and you will lose your chance. Please use an email address that you will check and has notifications turned on. Many people have lost the chance to drive because they do not check their emails. You will have a short amount of time to claim the spot, so you need to be ready.
We are going to be selling ride along wristbands. Passengers will need to arrange with the driver they are planning on riding with. Passenger must by 18 years old. The passenger must have a helmet and attire that meets Club Loose rules, i.e. SA2015 (less than 5 years old) or SA2020 closed face or better in acceptable condition and long pants, closed toe shoes and shirts with sleeves. The vehicle must have an approved seating configuration based on the rulebook. We are currently limiting this to A group drivers so that means a containment/head restraint seat or HANS device and harness that are not expired. Passenger wristbands will be $20/person and available at the Club Loose Merch Tent or the Mansion or Sneaky Pete’s(we will announce at drivers meeting).
Passengers are the responsibility of the driver. So if something isn’t right with whoever you decide to let in your car, it’s on you as well. Get things sorted and make sure your passenger has a wristband and the proper safety gear before even thinking about heading down on track.
