The city of Bowling Green is alive tonight. Every road between NCM Motorsports Park, Beech Bend Raceway and all points in between are alive with the sound of pushrod V8 engines. The engine that many said was a dinosaur, the engine that many decried as ancient technology, a design that was inferior to dual overhead cam designs. It would never run the proper numbers. It would never perform as well the others. It was nothing more than a brick-simple cam-in-block design that would be cheap to crank out by the millions and that anyone who willingly plonked down their cash for one was nothing more than a sap.
As the morning light shines across Bowling Green this Friday morning, the sound of that “ancient iron” style engine will reverberate throughout Warren County. LS Fest X will kick off, and we will have boots on the ground and will be working our asses off to get you the coverage that not only you need, but that this show deserves. Remember that ten shows ago, this was little more than a small gathering of enthusiasts that Holley was trying to sell new parts to. Now look at it…so big that a second location had to be found. So big that NCM Motorsports Park had to be tapped to take on some of the racing. So big that the day prior to the show, just for registration, the population at Beech Bend rivaled more than a few other shows we attend.
LS Fest X is going to be a monster. And as you read this, the monster is waking up.
