6th Annual NMCA LSX Shootout - Doorslammer Assault

In its sixth year, the NMCA LSX Shootout is better than ever

View Full Gallery

Now in its sixth year, the NMCA's Chevrolet Performance LSX Shootout in Indianapolis has become the premier event for LS-powered rides to slug it out down the 1320. Making the event even larger is the fact that the LS mayhem is mixed in with the NMCA World Street Finals, which is open to any car ready for some serious drag racing action. As proof that LS-powered cars haven't peaked yet, several records were smashed and two LSX drag radial entrants blasted into the 6s.

In addition to the all the drag racing there were jet cars, burnout contests, a vendors midway, car show, and used parts swap meet. For the LS cars there were a ton of classes including Drag Radial, All Motor, Real Street, Rumble (index), Fifth-gen Shootout, and the ever popular True Street and LS True Street competitions. This is one of the events we always look forward, too, and it's obvious that this three-day affair has a little something for everyone.
