The LS-market is steadily becoming a powerhouse, both in the performance and the event world. If you’re an LS-junkie, it’s hard not to have already heard about the LSX Challenge Series, an event brought to you by Chevrolet Performance, which we learned from SEMA. It’s back for this year and we have the completed and up to date event schedule. The racing series for street-based vehicles powered by Chevrolet’s LS and LSX engines takes place at four select events around the US.
If you’re an LS fan then the Chevrolet Performance Parts LSX Challenge Series is what you’ve been waiting for. Developed from the excitement of the LSX Shootout, and going on its second year, the LSX Challenge Series will run at four select events in 2013. Racers competing for the championship must participate in three of the four races, including the LSX Shootout. The results of each race will be tracked throughout the season in NMCA’s Fastest Street Car.
The four-race LSX Challenge Series for 2013 includes stops in Bradenton, Florida, Commerce, Georgia and Bowling Green, Kentucky, with the championship again to be decided at the 7th Annual LSX Shootout, held in conjunction with the NMCA World Street Finals, in Indianapolis. While the video we’ve provided comes from GM High Tech Magazine, however, it does you give you a sense for what you’d see at the event.
The race dates and locations include:
- 11th Annual Ross Racing Pistons NMCA Muscle Car Nationals Season Opener – Bradenton Motorsports Park – Bradenton, Florida – March 21-24, 2013
- 2nd Annual Chevy High Performance Nationals Presented by Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Atlanta Dragway – Atlanta, Georgia – May 31 – June 2, 2013
- 4th Annual Holley LS-Fest – Beech Bend Raceway – Bowling Green, Kentucky – September 6-8, 2013
- 12th Annual Flowmaster NMCA World Street Finals – Featuring the 7th Annual Chevrolet Performance LSX Shootout – Lucas Oil Raceway – Indianapolis, Indiana – October 10-13, 2013
The third event will be the Holley LS Fest, September 6–8, 2013, in Bowling Green, Kentucky, at Beech Bend Raceway. As in the past, LS Fest organizers will allow racers to follow the rules and classes of the LSX Challenge Series, with points and contingency awarded applying to the championship. Racers competing for the championship must participate in three of the four races, including the LSX Shootout. The results of each race will be tracked throughout the season in NMCA’s Fastest Street Car.
Along with supporting the LSX Shootout series, Chevrolet Performance enables racers to compete and win with a growing range of LSX maximum-performance crate engines and engine parts. Chevrolet Performance and NMCA’s family of sponsors will be posting valuable racer contingencies for all LSX race classes in 2013. Chevrolet Performance will be well represented by its host dealer, Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center, at all LSX Challenge Series events.
