Holley Is Adding An Event To LS Fest...LS Fest West!
March 21st, 2017
Holley’s LS Fest West is coming up May 5th-7th out in Las Vegas! It’s quickly become the go-to event for fans of GM’s high performance LS engine platform.
For this year’s event, Holley is introducing an additional LS Fest…LS Fest West, which will be at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway! The original LS Fest will still be held in Bowling Green but for those of you who can’t make it all the way to Kentucky here’s another option. If an LS based or late model LT engine is powering your ride or even if you’re thinking about doing an LS swap, you need to check this out. If you can name it and it’s being powered by an LS there’ll be something here for you to see. At the event you can take part in drag racing classes, autocross, dyno Challenge, and the Off Road Challenge where Ian Johnson and the Xtreme Off Road team will be to get it all on camera.
LS engines are taking over the off road world and they’re going to be put to the test at LS Fest West. There will be truck and buggy classes as long as they’re LS powered. Vehicles in each class will compete side-by-side on identical courses. The Ultra 4 Racing crew, who is also the creators of King Of The Hammers, will set up the track! Each truck will be required to make qualifying runs on both of the identical courses, then their qualifying time will be an average of both courses. Then, drag race style eliminations will take place. The truck that wins head to head will advance. Time doesn’t matter in eliminations…you just want to beat the truck beside you! They’re looking for the best 4-wheel drive vehicles in the world, so if you think you’ve got one…head to Las Vegas!
