Countdown to LS Fest in Bowling Green – It's Less Than a Month Away!
The following are overviews of a few of the most popular events taking place at Bowling Green – look for more to follow in the coming days:
DRAG RACING PRESENTED BY SCOGGIN-DICKEY PARTS CENTER AND ENGINE POWER TV
Watch some of the most powerful LS-powered race cars in the country battle side-by-side down the quarter-mile – or race your own car! Numerous classes are available, headed by the COPO Battle At The Green, which is just for COPO Camaros. These factory-built race cars come straight from General Motors with Holley EFI, Holley manifolds, and Earl’s coolers. Race yours or watch the thrilling action from the stands! Besides the top-of-the line COPOs, there's also a Grudge Test-N-Tune, where you can race your pals or go against the clock and see how fast your car really is. The Late Model Heads-Up category is just for the quickest and fastest LS- and LT-powered cars of recent vintage. Street King is open to any full-bodied vehicle (not dragsters, roadsters, or altereds), with numerous brackets from 8 seconds to 10.75. Chevrolet Performance Stock is a heads-up/all-out class just for naturally aspirated 1955 and newer GM vehicles with DR525 crate engines. Drag Radial is for cars with a single power adder (nitrous, turbocharger, or supercharger) that run to the eighth-mile and race heads-up. Real Street is also heads-up and is open to vehicles with or without a power adder running on 10.5-inch wide slicks or DOT 275 drag radial tires. Rumble is an index-based category open to full-bodied vehicles and run under an index format. Numerous brackets are available in quarter-second breaks from 11-flat to 15-flat. Finally, True Street is a heads-up class for fast street cars that also must take part in a special 30-mile cruise before hitting Beech Bend for the race.
AUTOCROSS PRESENTED BY QA1 AND LATERAL-G.NET
Want to test yourself on something other than the drag strip? Run your LS-powered vehicle on the QA1 autocross track in a moderate-speed competition that will showcase the car and driver with the best combination of acceleration, braking, and handling. This course has it all – hairpins, wide sweepers, chicanes, and slaloms.
3S CHALLENGE PRESENTED BY BAER BRAKES AND SUPER CHEVY
The always popular 3S Challenge tests drivers' mettle in three areas: speed, steering, and stopping. It combines disparate disciplines – autocross and speed/stop skills in a single event to determine the all-around best driver. The down-and-back course has a 180-degree turnaround, a slalom, and a stop box. Times on the left and right courses are combined, and the driver with the lowest total time is crowned champion. Don't go too fast, though – hit any course marker, cone, or stop-box cone and you're out!
