WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TrackBattle AND FESTIVAL EVENTS? 

The #GRIDLIFE Festivals (Midwest / South) are our biggest events of the year. These have all the components that you see in our recap videos and other rad stuff floating around the interwebs. The Midwest and South festivals are 3 day events with camping, music, drifting, car, shows, interactive displays, full vendors and more. 

The TrackBattle events are a traditional Meet / Show format with grassroots motorsports in the mix. Typically 2 day events, the TrackBattle series features a car meet / show / Time Attack / Drifting & Camping (at select venues). TrackBattle events however, do not have night time concerts. 


WHAT ABOUT THE WINTER EVENTS?

The KartBattle and IceBattle events are intended for community building throughout the winter and to help strengthen the driving skills for our HPDE & Time Attack drivers. Both the KartBattle and IceBattle events will begin pre sale for #GRIDLIFE Drivers starting Wednesday Dec 7th and will open to the public on Dec 16th.


WHEN DO THE CREW CORRALS FOR MIDWEST GO ON SALE?

Crew corrals will go on sale with the GA Presale Dec 12th & 15th.


WHATS UP WITH THESE PRE SALE PASSWORDS? HOW DO I GET ONE OF THOSE?

Easy. If you are signed up for our email updates or you have attended any #GRIDLIFE event in the past you will get the password sent to you via email. If you haven't signed up for email updates, just jump to the bottom of this page and sign up there.


WHATS AN EARLY ENTRY PASS?

For spectators wishing to arrive at either the Midwest or South festivals a day early (Thursday) this pass will get you that access. The cost is per car and simply allows us to estimate and provide appropriate staffing for those that are planning on coming early to #GRIDLIFE.
