LS Fest Texas 2024: 3S Challenge

05/18/2024

Saturday features a warm sun, clear skies, and a hot track! The 3S Challenge took place on the autocross course, rounding out an exciting and adrenaline-fueled weekend.


The Holley LS Fest Texas 3S Challenge is where speed, precision, and agility converge to create an exhilarating competition that puts both cars and drivers to the test. A part of the Grand Champion Competition, this unique event combines elements of autocross and speed-stop.


The 3S Challenge is aptly named for its focus on Speed, Stop, and Steering. It's a down-and-back course layout, where drivers start from a standstill, accelerate, turn 180 degrees, head back, and then must stop within a box of cones. If you hit a cone, your run doesn't count. It's a competition that requires finesse to make the best time without skidding past the cones.


It's also a spectator sport, with drivers trying to lay power down from a standstill, pitch their cars sideways, exit the corner, and skid to a stop within the box.


There's a winner for the 3S Challenge, and it's vital to accumulate points for those in the Grand Champion competition, which requires a collection of points from drag racing, autocross, and car shows.
