Holley's LS Fest West 2018
The 2nd Annual LS Fest West Was LS Heaven
Converging on Las Vegas Motor Speedway for Holley's 2nd Annual LS Fest West was just about any vehicle you could think of that could fit an LS engine—and even a few you’d never think possible. It’s no secret the Chevrolet LS-based engine has surpassed the small-block Chevrolet in the minds of custom truck and car builders. From off-road trucks to autocrossing mini-trucks, classic C10s, and drag-racing beasts, LS Fest West truly had something for everyone.
Heading west from Bowling Green, Kentucky, (the place LS Fest called home the last several years), the guys at Holley set to bring the entire automotive community together for not just a show ’n’ shine, but to take advantage of all the Las Vegas Motor Speedway has to offer. The dirt track had off-road and Ultra4 trucks launching throughout the day, while Hoonigan and Auto Revolution helped provide tire-smoking entertainment with the Daily Transmission and Mr. Chow’s Sideshow, respectively. Both new vehicles and classic swaps abound in the pits for autocross, with drifting taking over at night. But wait, there’s more! The dragstrip and road course were running all day, with many competing in multiple events for the Grand Champion prize.
Just as the LS engine has been proven to be able to be swapped into just about everything, Holley’s LS Fest West had something to offer everyone. For more information on this event, visit www.lsfest.com/west/.
