Holley LS Fest III, September 7, 8, 9!

It's BACK........ Holley LS Fest. A celebration of LS-based performance, this event brings in the baddest LS-powered cars on the planet! This is your chance to see the baddest of the bad LS-powered drag cars AND the best handling and coolest LS-based Pro Touring G Machines at the SAME EVENT.

This event is the race #3 in the Chevy Performance LSX Challenge Series, and you can bet that all the hitters will be showing up trying to take home the win. Outlaw Drag Radial will have all the LS big dogs on the same track again, like veterans Mike Brown and Andy Koehler, but will also feature newer guys like Andy Essary who piloted his WS6 the Murder Bird to a WIN in Bradenton. But Mark Carlyle will be there too, he recently cranked off a blistering new ET of 7.22@209!

Real Street will be back. Will it be Preston again or will Falcon or one of the other guys grab a win? All Motor is another exciting class with the Baskin Camaro turning up the game. Will it be Judson, Greg Delaney, Robert, Danny, Joe or the Lashleys taking this one?

Shut Your Face returns. Brian Black wants this pretty bad, and the rules are the best ever, how will this class go down this year?

5th Gen Camaro will reportedly draw every big dog 5th gen out, we will see a few 5th gens in the 8's that weekend I think so!

Autocross. Such a simple word for such a cool class. Take some new ZL1's, throw in some older GM muscle sporting 18x12's + 600 horsepower naturally aspirated, and you start to get an idea of what this class is like. It's high tech badassery.

Drifting, yes there will be drifting. Even yours truly a diehard drag racer will profess that I watched the drifting and was quite impressed with the handling and skill involved. And judging by the mangled bumpers on a few of last entries you might see a few of these guys trade some point before the end of the weekend.

But wait. The Engine Swap Challenge. Ever seen a team swap an LS engine into a car in under an hour? You will at LS Fest.

Looking to buy some performance parts? The vendor's midway will be packed with all the big players active in LS performance, from Holley to GM. Scoggin Dickey will be there in force, and there will be a lot of enticing event-only specials that you might not be able to pass up.

Oh there's also an awesome car show.

Oh and usually some TV personalities filming coverage. Don't forget the 5-6 magazines that will have staffers out covering the event and shooting cars for articles (did you know that your odds of getting into your favorite magazines goes up like 1000% if you hit an event like this?).

Pre-register now and take advantage of the early rates!

So if the opportunity to see the quickest, best handling LS cars on the planet sounds interesting to you, SAVE THE DATES: September 7, 8, 9 at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green Kentucky - Less than 8 weeks away!!!!!!

This bad boy, the Baskin All Motor Camaro started out as a body in white and was build for this class. Sporting 28x10.5's this stock suspended beast has run 8.3@160 mph. They lost at Bradenton with issues, and won Atlanta:

I'll check with LPE to see if they are bringing the white and black Camaros to the LS Fest. The white one has gone 8.5 in RS class trim with a 76mm turbo.

I have a lot of fun helping on my friend's 7.40 drag radial car but if I have enough time I'll bring my L99 and run it too. Not stock anymore.

I am in, mainly for the autox. Went last year with my 100% SS, this year I ain't stock no more.

Last year went 13.1@109 and was 25th in the autox this year I should be 12.3 or faster and a top ten autox.

Can't wait, this will be my 3rd year there! But this year I will be bringing the new beast so I hope to end up at the top of the podium this time around (in the auto-x that is) and no longer hanging around in 3rd and 4th spot... Those Detroit Speed cars are crazy lol. Hopefully there will be less rain as well!

lsx427 built by BES which is also the same engine shop as the Baskins Trucking cars use and it is built specifically to go with the procharger f2 and they also rebuilt and did their own magic with the MAST heads and then I had Dave at Nitrous Outlet build my intake for nitrous setup. It has been fully detailed for every step of the build with over 300 pics and can be seen in the 2 links attached to my signature at the bottom
