StanceWorks is proud to announce a special collaboration with Fatlace / HellaFlush in the form of an event far different then either entities have done before. In the constant pursuit of thinking “outside the box” in coming up with new experiences that few have been apart of, we present to you The 512 Project.

This event will occur on June 26th and will take place in capital of the Lone Star State: Austin, Texas. More importantly is not where it is occurring, but more “on what” it is occurring.

I would like to present to you DriveWayAustin:



To give you a better idea of what I’m referring to, here is a quick write-up:

Driveway Austin is a unique motor sports training and entertainment complex located in the heart of Austin, Texas. This state-of-the-art motoring academy brings a European style and flair to Central Texas. The superb Grand Prix Course has elevation changes, signature corners, extensive training facilities and a F1 caliber track that weaves its way through canopies of trees alongside the Colorado River.

The world class circuit design incorporates features of internationally famous tracks around the world including Fiorno, Imola, Laguna Seca, Road Atlanta and Monaco.

Pictures are worth 1000 words though, so here is a taste of what the track looks like:









We will be renting out the entire track for the day. So your going, “well sure, plenty of people hold car shows out at tracks… what’s the big deal?” This is true, but how many car shows happen ON the track?

Yes, that’s right… the event will be happening ON the track. The cars will be parked up and down the sides of this unique motor sport creation that few have ever even seen being that it’s mere inception started in 2007.

DJ Dawodu will be laying down the beats, with give-a-ways from various vendors and sponsors, as well as other surprises… more to follow.

One of the biggest notables is our media partners that will be attending. Our good friends at AWOL.tv and Wagenwerks will be in attendance to do what they do best. On top of that, the crew from 360VM will be out filming as well as some of the best photographers in the scene right now, including representatives from Speedhunters, HellaFlush and of course StanceWorks. Suffice to say, if you have been looking to have your car covered in ways that few have, that should be reason enough to show up. More notables will be announced along the way.

However, we are not stopping there.

For all registered cars, our friends at MayDayGarage will be hosting staged rallies from Dallas and Houston called “The Capital Run.” You will be given a starting point late the night before, to meet up the following morning to cruise down to the event for early roll-in. All cars in the show will be set up in advance before the gates open around noon.

I’m not done yet.

After the show, we will be having a “after-show party” at the official hotel of the event, the A-Loft hotel just north of Austin in the trendy town center called The Domain.



We will have the bar / lounge where happy hour prices will be available to attendees up to 11pm for those 21 and above. We will have a live DJ spinning, as well as safe and secure parking for all attendees.









We have been given a discounted rate of $89.00 a night vs the normal pricing of $149.00. Be sure to mention the 512 Project when registering for the discount.

Here is the hotel info:

A-Loft Hotel
11601 Domain Drive
Austin, TX 78758
P 512.491.0777

To cap it all off, Mark Arcenal (creator of Fatlace / HellaFlush) will be there in person along with his entire team. This is the HF teams first time in Texas so let’s make sure to make them feel welcomed with a big Texas presence at the show.

We have caravans already forming in the NorthEast, Southeast, Las Vegas, and California areas. This show will be bringing people in from all over the country, so if you want to make the show, more then likely there will be a group traveling from your area.

As a special note to the NorthEast caravan, you will have the pleasure of Stephen from Wagenwerks / AWOL.tv traveling with you, documenting the road trip down. If you need evidence to his abilities please see http://www.wagenwerks.com or AWOL | Air & Water on Land | Capturing the essence of auto enthusiasts worldwide.

All cars must be registered in advance of the show, and it will be $35 to register. This will give you two passes for you and a passenger and also allow you to participate in the rally from Dallas or Houston. Spectator tickets will be $10 at the gate. This event is for cars based around the Flush / Stance scene and all cars will be pre-screened. We are being fairly loose on the definition of wheel fitment, so if you think you car is dialed in please register it. We don’t want anyone to miss this!

more info:

So we are a little less then two weeks out, and the pre-registration response has been great! I have also gotten quite a few questions as to the details of the event, which I will quickly list out:

* if you HAVEN’T gotten a e-mail yet after you have registered, it is safe to presume you are in. I know this seems a lil ass-backwards, but we don’t have a automated process built into the registration to determine “wheel fitment.” It is easier to send out e-mails to those who aren’t flushed out, then to those that are. If you would like to have your car “pre-screened” before you go through the registration process, shoot me a link to your car via Ben at stanceworks.com.

* Food — We will have vendors out there servering food on the track. Due to the track being heavily wooded and secluded, we have been asked that there are NO open fires (ie: NO BBQ). You are welcome to bring a cooler of whatever you wish, as long as it doesn’t involve a open fire.

* The event will take place from 1pm – 7pm. Roll-in for registered cars will begin at 10am. Gates will be open to spectators at 1pm. We will be lining cars along the middle section of the track on either side of the track and in the middle where it connects. There is not gonna be a bad spot to park, but if you are wanting to park together as a group, I would suggest you re-group right before driving down the road that leads to the track. It will be much easier for our volunteers, and we would greatly appreciate it.

* Registration deadline will be Thursday the 24th. The main reason for pre-registration is preparing the parking logistics. This is a complicated venue to hold an event at. To bring some levity to the notion, we have a “traffic coordinator” helping us with the parking layout and entry / exit strategy. If it sounds more like “war room planning,” well, frankly it is. Everyone pre-registering helps eliminate one more variable which will make this event more enjoyable for everyone. If you have a special circumstance that requires you to register past the 24th, just e-mail me and we will figure it out.

* Spectators will need to pay $10 at the gate per person. I assure you this event will be FAR better then any movie you have seen this year, and will be a chance to see some good cars and meet some great people.

* A-Loft has only a few rooms left under the “512 Project” discount. We have been given a discounted rate of $89.00 a night vs the normal pricing of $149.00. Be sure to mention the 512 Project when registering for the discount.

Here is the hotel info:

A-Loft Hotel
11601 Domain Drive
Austin, TX 78758
P 866.932.7660

That discount was suppose to have run out last friday, but people are telling me they are still being able to use it. Suffice to say, I would call to book my room asap.

Once the rooms are booked up, there are hotels in the same area not more then a rocks throw from A-Loft. We will all be having a great time in the evening, so I encourage everyone to book a room somewhere.

* Lastly, we are all car enthusiast’s and love the big pedal on the right. When you combine that with just merely the sight of smooth pavement, we all tend to lose ourselves in the rush of adrenaline. I get it. I have the same disease. With that said, we ALL have to check those desires at the gate of this event. This is NOT a track event. This is NOT a drift event. Anyone that thinks otherwise will be asked to leave immediately. We have built a great relationship with DriveWayAustin in a short amount of time and we do not want to tarnish it by acting like we are 12. Unfortunately, the car enthusiast community as a reputation of doing stupid things, and I would love to break that impression starting with 512. RESPECT the track and each other when coming out to this event. It’s gonna be a great time if we all can do that.

* Expect announcements all throughout the week leading up to the event. We have people driving in from literally coast-to-coast. I think everyone will be suprised at how many different license plates are gonna be gathered in one place, all in the name of “wheel-fitment.” It will be quite the experience.

Again, any questions please don’t hesitate to e-mail me and if you haven’t already:
