LS Fest Coverage: Day 2
Check out coveage from Day 2 of Holley LS Fest 2018!
Saturday is typically the largest, most well-attended day of the three day event. Crowds of enthusiasts enjoy checking out more drag racing, drifting, autocross take place, and enjoy checking out the car show, bolt on
challenge, and dyno challenge in between.
For the first time ever in LS Fest history, event planners secured the theme park for additional car show parking, creating a uniquely appealing backdrop to check out some of the coolest LS swapped show cars and trucks from all over the country. LS Fest particpants and spectators could also purchase a theme park ticket to cool off at the water park or ride any of the rides within the park.
The Hoonigan Burnout Challenge kicked off the Saturday evening festivities, with 8-10 excited drivers putting their cars and trucks through a grueling minute of rev limiter, spinning tires and colored clouds of smoke to declare a crowd decided winner. In the end Gerald Cambell from Peebles, Ohio ended up taking the win in his '56 Chevrolet Wagon.
The Lucas Oil Drift Challenge is always a crowd pleaser and though raindrops started to fall from the sky toward the end of the burnout challenge, a large crowd stuck around and endured a little rain in order to experience the aural and visual spectacle that is drifting. A top 16 bracket of drivers that had qualified on track earlier that day went head to head in tandem competition and three drivers ended up on the podium when the smoke cleared.
Taylor Hull, a first time LS Fest Drift Challenge competitor brought out his Cadillac ATS drift car and edged out Andrew Schulte from Phoenix, Arizona and his S13 Nissan 240SX in the final battle of competition. James Evans and his LS powered Nissan 350Z took third place.
