I will be here all 3 days. Favorite race of the year as it grows every year and this year should be insane with all the big build cars I heard were coming to beat Carlyle. They better bring something big cause that car is even better now.

Both of the Ohio Boys went to twin 88's so Drag Radial will be pretty interesting. Our car is an underdog since our quickest is 7.25 and 4.7 in the 1/8th but we'll try our best.

Also added the Pro LSX class, 5 cars supposed to show. Big tires, 4.2 - 4.4 in the 1/8th.

Im pretty sure if you enter 5th gen you get a free entry into true street but if not you can sign up for as many classes as your car qualifies for.

Josh aka blackflag plans to go, he sold his 45th though. He has a set of used 20" MT DR's if anyone is interested, as well as some suspension parts.

ill be there all three days for sure. im going to do the autocross, dyno, and 3S challenge. im not a drag racer but i may make a pass before the weekend is over. im a road track guy. i did the speed stop last year one time and it was the first time i had ever staged a car. i stopped waaaaaaay too early. get off the stinking track redneck. ha ha.
i saw some of the C5 drag racers there last year. i couldnt even get another C5 owner to wave at me much less talk to me. i think they were in the zone and focused on their car and performance which i completely understand. the ls fest is just a fun weekend for us. we do it because its 10 minutes from the house. i get in the zone when we go to VIR or mid ohio.
my father in law is supposed to bring the C7 to my pit stall. you guys come over and check it out if you see us.

If there is any chance you can go to this, one of the most-fun events in the nation for LS guys.

Hopefully next year I can go again :(
