6th Annual LSX Shootout

LS Excess

There was a time when an LS-powered drag car was way more exception than rule, but these days it's become almost commonplace at the dragstrip. Sure, they're still vastly outnumbered by their older-school cousins, but now with the number of hard-chargin' LS-powered hot rods out there, they warrant having their own event.

That's where the NMCA's LSX Shootout comes in. After six years, the event is bigger and better than ever. Running alongside the LSX Shootout is NMCA's World Street Finals, which is open to any car looking to blast down the 1320.

In addition to the all the LS-powered drag action, the three-day event featured jet cars, burnout contests, a vendors midway, used parts corral, and a car show. For the LS cars, there were a ton of classes including: Drag Radial, All Motor, Real Street, Rumble (index), 5th Gen Shootout, and the ever-popular True Street. If you didn't find something here to get you excited, then maybe you should consider taking up knitting.
