New Truck Grand Champion Class Added to LS Fest West & East – More Reasons To Attend!

Oh…as if you needed ANOTHER reason to attend either LS Fest or LS Fest West!? Now you have one. The guys that run the event have decided that one Grand Champion was not enough and we agree with them. There are a load of killer trucks that show up at the event and compete. Giving the trucks their own class is a perfect way to keep some of the best LS powered rigs in the country busy. The reality is that trucks, even the really bad ass ones tend to be working from a bit of a disadvantage in terms of weight and CG, so giving them an even platform to compete on makes total sense.

The Grand Champion award is one of the most coveted in the LS world because it means you have built one of the ultimate “all-purpose” vehicles. You drag race, you cruise, you road course, and you speed stop. These prove the worthiness of your vehicle. Now the trucks have their own stomping ground and that rules.

New Truck Grand Champion Class Added to LS Fest West & East

Holley wants to find the fastest all-around LS or current-gen LT powered truck! For 2018, Holley is pleased to announce the addition of a Truck Grand Champion class for future LS Fest events, beginning with LS Fest West  in May and carrying on through LS Fest in Bowling Green this September. Each year, the number of trucks at LS Fest continues to grow. In order to spur LS and current-gen LT truck enthusiasts on in friendly competition, Holley has amended the current prize structure. The Truck Grand Champion class winner will take home a $1000 payout along with a plaque and an Grand Champion jacket.

The Grand Champion competition at LS Fest is for participants who want to test their abilities across multiple event segments. Make sure to bring a vehicle that not only goes fast but also brakes great and stays planted in the corners. Grand Champion competitors will be required make at least one pass on the drag strip and run three autocross laps, two 3S Challenge laps, and one lap around the Road Course. To read the full breakdown of rules for this segment of LS Fest competition, please click the link below. Registration for the event will remain the same no matter what type of vehicle you bring. Just make sure that the year, make, and model of the vehicle are entered accurately during the registration process so that the event staff can keep track.
