The Lucas Oil Drift Challenge is a great way to see drifting at its finest. This event consists of skilled drivers and their vehicles competing in tandem competition around a predetermined course to decide a winner. Drivers are evaluated by a panel of three judges that decide who advances to the next round based on three criteria: line, angle, and overall style. Drivers showcase their talent and compete for a $1,500 purse and great publicity. Second and Third place finishers receive $750 and $375 gift certificates for Holley brand products, respectively. This event is invitational only. To send in a submission for consideration, please follow the link for instructions.
Scoggin Dickey Drag Racing is an LS Fest favorite, and this year there are a couple of additional drag classes to announce: Lil John’s Motorsport Solutions Stock Block Shootout, and Monster Clutch Stick Shift/Banger Class. Make sure to read up on the correct class for you and register appropriately. Returning to LS Fest East is the Test-N-Tune/Grudge class. It is perfect for those looking attend the event, try out a new setup, or just have a good time making some passes down the track against other LS-powered rides. Find out about all 11 LS Fest East drag classes here!
The Burnout Challenge will return to LS Fest East for 2018. In this event, several preselected vehicles from various LS Fest event segments (i.e., Pro Touring, drift, drag, show-n-shine, etc.) compete against one another in order to establish who can provide the best gross display of horsepower for the night. Contact Holley at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to be considered for the contest!
