Camping at the Monterey Pre-Reunion

Camping While Awesome

Bring your car, bring your camera, bring your sleeping bag and warm-ass clothes, and meet up with us at Laguna Seca during the Pre-Reunion for #campingwhileawesome. It's like the old days when everyone parks around the track with their picnic set up, following the action with their hand crank cameras, capping snaps of the cars as they fly by. It's awesome, and the more the merrier!

NCRC Track Day @ Laguna Seca (not a DWA! event)

Our friends Jon with the 1965 GTO and Marvin with the 1969 Camaro, both from the CRR2018 rally, signed up for an NCRC track day at Laguna Seca on Sunday May 27th. We may or may not be able to make it because a couple of us are traveling, but it would be cool to see others out there with them

Check out the NCRC page to sign up! http://www.ncracing.org/events.php

Radwood at Hooptie-Con

Register for the event with your 1980-1999 car for $25, and you get 2 access passes to all that Hooptie-Con has to offer.

Radwood is a celebration of '80s and '90s automotive lifestyle. The car show that blends period correct dress with automotive awesomeness. A period correct event for cars, trucks, and bikes from 1980-1999 that captures the essence of a bodacious era. Wear your best '80s and '90s clothing and bring your rollerblades or BMX bike, because it's going to get RAD!

Radwood is going to be at the first ever Hooptie-Con at Sonoma Raceway. Along with Radwood, there will be Crapcannes Car-Film Festival (drive-in movies for drivers), 24 Hours of Lemons (endurance racing for $500 cars), Billetproof (traditional old-school rods), Concours d'Lemons (Celebrating the Oddball, Mundane, and Truly Awful of the Automotive World), an engine-heat BBQ cookoff, and more. Hooptie-Con runs rain or shine!

2018 Coastal Range Rally
to Feb 25

2018 Coastal Range Rally

  • San Juan Bautista Soledad, CA, 93960 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

What is the Coastal Range Rally?

The Coastal Range Rally of 2018 is a three-day event, Feb 23rd - 25th throughout Central California.

Technically the "Coastal Range", is the name given to the mountains lining the Pacific Coast of North America, spanning from Alaska and Canada, down to Southern California and Mexico. From the ice fields of British Columbia to the mountains suspending Big Sur, this term “Coastal Range” invokes thoughts of rugged terrain, ocean vistas and classic scenes of western life. It’s no coincidence that the roads built to navigate these areas have a reputation all their own, some of which have been recognized as All-American roads no less.

If you have a penchant for interesting cars and you happen to live near the Coastal Range, you already have quite a bit in common with us at Driving While Awesome.

There are plenty of vintage rallies throughout CA, but none of us at DWA had cars that qualify...so we started our own. We are all about diversity and we have had everything from a 1962 Bristol to a 2007 Ruf RGT participate. We’d like to offer you an opportunity to join us for a weekend tour of some of our favorite parts of California.  

No horsepower figures needed, this is not a race. All cars from the beginning of time-now are considered, but... we have standards. We want cars with a sense of occasion. Sell us on why you and your car should be on the Coastal Range Rally.

How much is it?

  • $300 - me myself and I (Driver) 
  • $450 - driver and co-driver
  • $600 - three people
  • $750 - 4 people

The entrance fee includes the following:

  • Goodie bag (shirt, stickers, snacks, and more...)
  • Rally map
  • Raffle entry (prizes donated by our generous sponsors) 
  • Roadside assistance provided by Hagerty Insurance
  • 1 lunch and 2 dinner parties
  • An awesome weekend, and more... 

*You will need to book your own hotels. We will provide you with our recommended hotels once you are accepted.


This year's event will start in Central California and end in Central California. 

I want to go, how do I sign up?

Application deadline is 12/08/2017

Apply with full payment, and we will choose 50 ish cars that make the cut. 

If you are not accepted (we still think you're awesome), we'll refund payment in full by 12/11/2017.  

*Please No Vehicle Substitutions Without Prior Approval.    

*Refunds available until January 23rd, after which entry fees are non-refundable. This event will run rain or shine, and we reserve the right to alter the route at any time.
