"For 50 seconds or less, I'm free" wouldn't sound quite as cool coming out of Vin Diesel's mouth, but rest assured, there's plenty of excitement to be found on the NCM Motorsports Park skidpad when we litter it with orange cones and direct LS Fest Autocrossers to attack the course with a ferocity rarely seen during peacetime in our nation. Autocross requires a nimble vehicle, precise driving, and consistency. That is, unless, you just really hate orange cones and don't mind a little penalty time.

If you're at LS Fest or reading this from home, you know there's one reason we all choose to worship at the altar of the almighty LS and LT engines: They make big power and they don't have to cost you a lot of money. And there is no better display of power than sending LS-powered machines down the ole 1320'. Whether your weapon of choice is just the 14.7 psi that Earth's atmosphere provides us (at sea level), chemical injection from the finest forms of nitrous oxide and methanol, or additional pressure provided by a turbo or supercharger, drag racing is the standard by which real power is measured and where we separate the men from the boys at LS Fest.READ MORE
There's more to life than crossing the finish line first. Sometimes it's more about letting loose, having some fun, looking good, and absolutely annihilating as many sets of unsuspecting tires as humanly possible. Through the gifts of a nigh limitless supply of rubber and an infinite amount of LS horsepower, the drifters do all of the above in one of the most exciting disciplines in motorsports today. Take a peak inside for all of our drift coverage!READ MORE
Contrary to popular belief, everything at LS Fest isn't fast-paced, tire-smoking tomfoolery. While those things are going on all day, you can also take a moment to stroll through the gorgeous landscape of Beech Bend Raceway and take in some aesthetically pleasing cars, trucks, SUVs, and everything in between. All LS-Powered, of course. Check out what the LS Fest Car Show has to offer inside!READ MORE
Among the smorgasbord of motorsport disciplines on display at LS Fest, none can rival the primal urge or our racers and spectators the way the Off-Road Challenge can. While the Venn Diagram of similarities between say, drag racers and drifters might be two separate circles, there's no denying that every man, woman, and child on the property loves watching these off-road machines flying through the air and tearing up our off-road course. Check out some of the literal highest highlights available from LS Fest inside!READ MORE
The Grand Champion segment is the most complete test of the mettle of man and machine at LS Fest. These competitors compete on the skidpad, road course, and drag strip to do battle for the title of LS Fest Grand Champion. We suggested adding the Off-Road Challenge course to see who has built a truly complete machine, but we couldn't get enough buy-in. Check inside for updates, results, and photography from the weekend.READ MORE
Road racing is one of the most challenging disciplines of racing in the world. The driver and car must work in unison at all times under acceleration, braking, cornering, and often two of those three things at the same time. Now, take the road course and add autocross style gates to it to give tighter track limits, and you have Track X. Although it is not a scored event for Grand Champion competitors, it's a good opportunity to test 'n tune setups and just plain fun. Check out our coverage of this segment inside!READ MORE
When you're at LS Fest, anything can become a race! While some of us may estimate the time it takes to complete a project by the estimated number of beers consumed, the Boxo Bolt-On Challenge puts contestants on the clock as they install Holley go-fast goodies. Check inside for our coverage!READ MORE
If you're reading this, there's a good chance you've dumped a clutch and done the two-foot shuffle to show off for someone, somewhere. We can all do it, but it takes a little something extra to compete in the LS Fest Burnout Challenge. To truly compete, you need a little extra pizzazz and perhaps complete and total disregard for the health of your vehicle, specifically the tires. Check out the highlights of the Burnout Challenge inside!READ MORE
The 3S Challenge is kinda like an unholy union conceived between drag racing and autocross. This heads-up event pits two cars against each other in a drag race... where they also turn and stop. Hence, the three S's (Start, Steer, Stop). This formula creates some of the most compelling racing at LS Fest. Check out our coverage inside!READ MORE
Amidst all the LS-Powered excitement over the weekend, we do carve out a little time to have a little fun in a lot less serious way. Using gravity as the only means of power, our Power Wheels racers head to a little downhill track on the Beech Bend property and attempt to keep their plastic wheels on the pavement en route to crossing the finish line.
LS Fest East is an amazing event filled with like-minded enthusiasts, thrill seekers, and influencers. We gather our partners, influencers, and educators for a quick photoshoot. These are the fun-havers and educators who help bring new and existing enthusiasts into the fold.
This is an opportunity for them to meet participants, shake hands, and brainstorm for the next project. Bench racing at its best.
