The gates are open and some of the sleekest and downright fastest LS-powered vehicles in the country are pouring into the gates of Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The 2015 Holley LS Fest, which has become the mecca for all manner of vehicles powered by the revered LS (and now LT) Chevrolet small-block engine is in full swing, with action on the autocross, drag strip and road course at the National Corvette Museum heating up.

Today’s test and tune on the dragstrip will run until 3:00 pm, with autocross and track cross (road course) groups alternating time trials until 5:00 pm. As the heat of the day begins to wane, the big guns will come out to play. Some of the quickest and fastest LS-powered street legal rides will get a time trial in LSX True Street, followed by the lightning fast cars of the Chevrolet Performance Challenge series, a slew of COPO Camaros and the LSX Index cars.

In addition to the action on the strip, there is a dyno challenge going on all weekend, along with a show and shine area full of LS-powered rides, both old and new. Make sure to check back throughout the weekend for coverage, galleries, and results from all of the exciting, LS-based competitions.
