CLUBLOOSE EAST COAST BASH 2013 – Englishtown, NJ

Clubloose-309

Clubloose-6One of my personal favorite driving events of the year has returned for yet another memorable time in New Jersey. Clubloose EAST COAST BASH is always a great time and this year was no different. The amount of drivers this year was huge. Each group of driving groups from beginner to advanced had at least 30 to 40 drivers. Many drivers and spectators were form all over the country. All these new people bought out so many new builds and setups showcased on this wonderful summer weekend. Of course all this hard driving didn’t come with a few people paying the price. There were many crashes and mechanical failures amongst the drivers but that did not stop many people from fixing the issues to get back out there and drive hard once again. The drivers not only had to battle car issues, but also mother nature. It was a very, VERY hot weekend. Not only that, on the last day of this two-day event, it rained…HARD. Still the show must go on and it did. This is why I love this event so much. People don’t let issues stop them from having a good time no matter what. So with that being said, lets get into this coverage.

Clubloose-205The Drift Alliance was in full effect on Saturday. Anywhere from 4 to 7 missile car tandems from Forsberg, Gittin, Tuerck and crew. They put down crowd pleasing runs everytime they were out on track.

Clubloose-234Our driver Reese Marin in his One Motion Garage Built LSx S13 was smoking up Nexen Tires all weekend long. Despite a few hiccups from tandem crashes, he kept going and drove harder and harder with each run. Reese definitely killed it at ECB.
