Midwest Enthusiasts Throw a Party


#1

South Haven, MI, June 8-10, 2018. The place and time of this year’s Gridlife Motorsports Festival. If you have any interest in track days, race cars, drifting, time attack, show cars, camping, or even live music from popular mainstream artists …catches breath… then you may want to look into attending Gridlife yourself.

For those of you who haven’t been to Gridlife, here is a quick overview of the event. Thursday evening, drivers, vendors, and eager attendees show up to Gingerman raceway to get set up and settle in for the long and eventful weekend. Friday through Sunday feature a track that is almost always hot. Throughout the day you will see drivers participating in HPDE, Time Attack, and even professional drifters on track with amateurs! Displayed around the pond are the show cars, each unique in their modifications and style.

Once the on-track excitement ends, Friday and Saturday night turn the back area of the grounds into a jungle of lights, music, and party people. If music festivals are your kind of thing, you’ll have a good time seeing acts such as Sweater Beats, Lucky Chops, Waka Flocka, or Ludicrous… Yes, the guy from Fast and Furious.

Was anyone able to go? Fun pictures to share? What was your favorite part?!
