ECS Flag Sponsorship Returns for 2014-2015 Season
FLAG SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM/PARKING:
This year ECS originally planned to phase out the "sponsor parking" offered in previous seasons. We have been approached by a number teams that would like to keep the parking program alive, so we have decided to rescind the past statement. ECS recognizes the importance of this program and hopes to bring back the same sponsors from previous years, as well as new clients onto this platform.
New Flag cost is $400 (from $500) due before Sept. 1st
Use of existing flag is $350
3 flags equal 1 : 15 second announcement per day
4 flags equal 1 :15 second announcement per day and sponsor parking (1 truck and trailer)
6 flags equal 2 : 15 second announcements per day sponsor parking and hyperlink on website
All trailers with a Pro driver (by judgment of ECS officials) will have access to sponsor parking without cost. The classes of Pro-lite and down have the option to buy flags for upgraded parking. ECS will require a phone call or an email before noon to hold spots on parking days to hold spots for late coming trailers.

Shawn Achilles Adds General Manager to Race Director Duties at East Coast Snocross
CLARKSBURG, Mass. (May 20, 2014) — It's been said that experience is the best teacher in almost any subject. Never was that statement any more accurate than in the world of snowmobile racing, where there are often more variables than you'll find in a complex mathematical equation.
Officials at East Coast Snocross (ECS) are pleased to announce that veteran race official Shawn Achilles will assume the duties of General Manager, effective immediately in addition to his role as Event Race Director during the racing season. Achilles, of Readsboro, Vermont, started racing snowmobiles in the late 1990s, then joined the staff at Rock Maple Racing in 2003. For the last 11 winters, he has been trackside at every race, working in a variety of roles.
"I'm excited to move into this position, and honored that new series owner Kurt Gagne has placed his trust in me," Achilles said. "I think with Kurt at the helm, we really do have a lot to look forward to at ECS. I've already started preparing information for our sponsors and race sites; we know how fast the off-season goes by and want to be sure we're ahead of the curve."
