LS Fest 2018
Holley LS Fest is a unique event. The obvious thread that ties it all together is the GM Generation III and up V8 engine. Once you've slid one of these powerplants between your fenders, you're welcome here. This yields a staggering variety of vehicles, from stock Corvettes and Camaros to crazy drag cars, rock crawlers, and even Volkswagens. We even saw a twin-turbo Nissan Sentra. Anything goes.
Now take that crazy mash-up of cars and set them all in motion. This isn't an event where you sit in lawn chairs and drink tea. Staged at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky, there is a drag strip, autocross course, and miles of curvy roads surrounding the track. These elements conspire to make the static show and shine a relatively small portion of the show. Cars were meant to be driven, right?
Speedway set up shop in vendors row and had a pretty good view of the action all weekend. Here are a few shots that we were able to grab while we weren't talking to customers or rolling around under our own race cars.
The beautiful weekend was only slightly dampened by the rain on Sunday. We made the best of the rainy day by seeking shelter in the National Corvette Museum, which is right up the road from the track. Check it out if you're in the area, there's a ton of Corvette cars and memorabilia that you're not going to find anywhere else.
By the way, what was Speedway's Project Chevelle doing at LS Fest with racing numbers in the windows? Interesting question. Stay tuned and it'll all make sense, we promise.
