Mark your calendars! October 10-13 are the official dates of the 7th Annual Chevrolet Performance LSX Shootout presented by NMCA and Chevrolet Performance at Lucas Oil Raceway Park in Indianapolis, Indiana. As you may remember, last year was a wild ride thanks to a ton of rain that caused competition to become an all-night affair on Saturday (racing until 5 a.m.!).
The event, which is held in conjunction with the NMCA World Finals, is the largest LS gathering in the United States and offers a little something for everyone, including a heads-up racing event, index-style and True Street racing for competitors of all levels and a brilliant LS-powered only car show. More than $50,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded and event sponsor GM High-Tech Performance magazine will be there providing awesome coverage for the LS community. The LSX Shootout marks the end of the Chevrolet Performance LSX Challenge Series so expect that champions will be crowned during the event.
It all kicks off with the ever-special 2013 LSX Shootout Racer Appreciation Party complete with free parts raffle on Thursday, October 10th, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn -- this year's host hotel. A complete list of the generous prizes offered can be seen below.
Hardcore LSX Shootout heads-up classes include JE Pistons Drag Radial, ERL Performance All Motor, and Holley EFI Real Street, while DiabloSport and Camaro Performers magazine will be sponsoring the 5th Generation Camaro Challenge. Yours truly will sponsor the heads-up 5th Generation Camaro Shootout on Sunday, complete with all of the fastest cars from the Camaro Challenge class. Two classes will be open to mild to wild street-type LS-powered vehicles, Proform Racing LSX Rumble and TREMEC LSX True Street, with the former allowing drivers to choose their individual index in order to match their street machines up in competition against some of the fastest cars in the country.
Those racers taking part in the LSX Rumble and 5th Gen Camaro classes are eligible to compete free of charge in the LSX True Street class on Saturday. Competitors will embark on a cruise through the countryside before returning to the track for a three-run showdown. The winner will take the title of baddest LSX-powered True Street car in the world! All of the lucky class winners will receive a sweet cash prize, an LSX block, and the super-coveted winner's jacket courtesy of Chevrolet Performance and host dealer, Scoggin -Dickey Parts Center.
The World's Fastest LS Challenge, presented by Chevrolet Performance, will award drivers of the fastest LS-powered individual makes and models with special cash prizes. Do you think that you own the world's fastest Camaro, Firebird, GTO, G8, Cadillac, truck, or SUV? Bring it to Indianapolis and wow judges to win $250, a custom LSX Shootout winner's jacket, and a bonus $250 prize if the car has a Chevrolet Performance LSX Bow-Tie block.
The car show portion of the event exists for performance enthusiasts who want to show off their awesome LS muscle cars and hot rods. For two days, the cars will be seen by fellow enthusiasts before prizes are awarded to vehicles in each of the following classes: 5th generation Camaros, 4th generation Camaros & Firebirds, Corvettes, Cadillacs, GTOs, Trailblazers, and LSX hybrids.
