The Lucas Oil Drift Challenge consists of skilled drivers and their vehicles competing in tandem competition around a predetermined course at Beech Bend’s 3/8 mile oval track. Drivers are evaluated by a panel of three judges that decide who advances to the next round based on three criteria: line, angle, and overall style. It’s an adrenaline-inducing event that allows drivers to showcase their talent and compete for a $1,500 purse in addition to great publicity! Second and third place will take home $750 and $375 checks!
In addition to the first-place cash payout and gift certificates mentioned, each podium finisher will be supplied with a custom engraved LS Fest steering wheel from Grip Royal. And the list goes on – a brand new set of Fortune Auto 500 series coilovers will be going home to our “spirit of drift” award winner. This title will fall to the drift challenge winner who over the course of the weekend evokes what event organizers feel most appropriately summed up what drifting is all about.
If you’re not able to catch the main event on Saturday night, come back out Sunday afternoon to catch the Sunday Redemption Round, where competitors from the previous night’s top 8 bracket compete again for another pot of cash! Winner takes home $750, second place receives $500 and third takes home $250.
It doesn’t matter what make and model the vehicle is as long as it’s powered by an LS engine and is sporting the appropriate safety equipment (see rules below for more information on safety). If you are interested in participating in this invitational only event please send an email to email@example.com containing the following information: your name, address, phone number and car year, make, model. Send photos of your vehicle’s exterior and engine compartment and tell us (in 200 words or less) why you should be chosen for the challenge, and what professional skills/qualifications you have that will help you compete.
Deadline for entries is August 30th, 2020, so get those fingers typin’!
