THE #GRIDLIFE CODE
#GRIDLIFE is all about the merging of multiple automotive cultures. Bringing everyone together on common ground for 3 days of Music, Motorsports, and Automotive passion. We work incredibly hard to make sure #GRIDLIFE is an amazing experience for everyone that attends and following these guiding principles will ensure you and everyone around you has the best possible time at #GRIDLIFE.
DON'T BE THAT GUY
Thinking about driving your silver STI around and stealing coolers? Or doing a sweet ass burnout by your camp site? Don't. You're ruining it for everyone. There are bad apples in every bunch. Try not to be the bad apple in yours and if you must do a burnout, save it for the Wal-Mart parking lot.
#GRIDLIFE is for positivity and good times only. Leave the negative vibes, internet tolling, and hateraid at home. Spend 3 days hanging with your friends exchanging high fives, helping others out, and getting down on the track, in the show, and at the concerts.
KEEP IT CLEAN
Respect the racetrack, respect the staff, respect your neighbors, and keep your spot clean. Pick up after yourself and remind others to do the same. Hosting an event like this is a privilege we don't want to lose. It's up to all of us to leave the track as we found it, if not better.
#GRIDLIFE is a multi day event. It's best to plan ahead and equip yourself and your campsite with everything you need for the weekend. Hydration, sunscreen, rain gear, chairs, coolers, backup power for your devices, etc. You don't want to spend the whole fest at the Wal-Mart.
DON'T OVERDO IT
It's easy to get carried away with a good time. We've all been there, just try not to do it on the grid. Pace yourself throughout the weekend. You don't want to turn up too hard on Saturday and then forget to turn in during the first session on Sunday.
BE A FAMILY
Respect is number one on the grid. Take care of your friends and make an effort to make new friends. #GRIDLIFE works because of mutual respect shared across the festival. Watch out for your neighbors and be an example of positivity for everyone you meet.

THINGS THAT WILL GET YOU KICKED OUT
We want you to have a good time and it's okay to get excited about #GRIDLIFE. But before you express that excitement, know what forms of expression can get you booted and banned. Burnouts, Revving, donuts in the grass, cooler smashing, neighbor harassing, S*it talking, fighting, thievery, excessive noise, banned substances, weapons, hot dog (or other) unapproved vending, late night 2 stepping, drinking while the track is hot, and excessive party fouls. Basically don't be a dummy.
