Quick 16 Shootout

This year at LS Fest Bowling Green we’re looking for the fastest cars topping out the drag strip and to find them we created the Quick 16!  The Quick 16 Shootout is a Fast, Loud and Wild class designed to show case the GM LS/LLT Engine, in extreme Door Cars, Dragsters and Altereds all in one Shootout.  With Top Sportsman, Top Dragster and Altered type vehicles in a Qualified field with competition conducted in a dial-in et format.  This will be an 1/8th mile race on a .500 sportsman tree with scoreboards on.  It is run what you brung, but the car must meet NHRA safety requirements for the times it runs and must be LS/LT powered obviously.  Let’s see what you got!
