The biggest LS event of the year - the LSX Shootout - is around the corner and promises to bring all the crazy LS excitement you've come to expect. This special event, brought to you once again by NMCA and GM Performance Parts, will take place at Lucas Oil Raceway Park in Indianapolis, Indiana, the weekend of October 6-9, 2011. Held in conjunction with the FueLab NMCA World Finals and NMCA Flowmaster Muscle Car Nationals, the LSX Shootout features awesome heads-up racing for the fastest LS-powered cars in the world, index-style and True Street racing for competitors of all levels, and a giant all LS-powered car show. This is "the" LS event of the year, with over $50,000 in cash and prizes, and it's brought to you by GM Performance Parts. Presenting sponsor, GM High-Tech Performance magazine, has already published the official LSX Shootout Fan Guide and their staff will be at the Shootout participating and providing awesome event coverage.
The LSX Shootout's heads-up classes include JE Pistons Drag Radial, ERL Performance All Motor, and Holley EFI Real Street...all of which are wheels-up and hardcore. The LSX Shootout also features three classes for mild to wild street-type LS-powered vehicles: Proform LSX Rumble, Nitto Tire 5th Gen Camaro presented by Camaro Performers magazine, and TREMEC True Street Challenge. LSX Rumble and 5th Gen Camaro allow racers to pick their index, matching their street machine up against some of the fastest cars in the country. All racers competing in LSX Rumble and 5th Gen Camaro may also compete for free in the True Street Challenge class on Saturday. Travel through the countryside then bring your LS-powered musclecar, truck or SUV back to the track for a three-run showdown to determine who has the baddest LSX-powered True Street car in the world! All class winners will receive big bucks, an LSX block, and the coveted winners jacket courtesy of GM Performance Parts and their host dealer, Scoggin -Dickey Parts Center.
