Round up your friends and head to Texas June 17-18 for Holley’s next installment of their popular LS Fest series to be known as Holley LS Fest Texas! The event will be held inside the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth and will feature all the popular automotive mayhem that LS Fests are known for including drifting, drag racing, burn out contests, show-n-shine, autocross, a dyno and more!
Each LS Fest takes on a life of its own and Texas will be the nightlife as the event will start late and end late to beat the Texas heat. Most event segments will continue after dark including drifting, burn out contest, autocross and drag racing. LS Fest Texas drag racing will take place on pit road at the famed Texas Motor Speedway and will be a true no-prep style 1/8th mile drag race, which is sure to fit the nighttime vibe. Water misters will be around the facility during daylight hours so you can stay cool and work on your Texas tan!
“The LS engine is no stranger to the great state of Texas”, stated Blane Burnett, Holley’s Events Manager. “With numerous high-profile engine builders, performance shops and LS enthusiasts located throughout the area, we’ve felt that Texas needed an LS Fest of its own for quite some time. We’re thrilled to see that happen this year and can’t wait to see the variety of LS-powered machines and their owners that come out ready to get down at Texas Motor Speedway!”
If you have an LS or current Gen LT based V8 engine powering your ride or if you are considering a swap to LS power, this is your event! Race cars, drift cars, street rods, rat rods, muscle cars, trucks, late models – if they’re powered by an LS engine, they’re welcome to party at LS Fest Texas! Event/class champions will be crowned as well as an overall event champion for those that want to compete in multiple events. Check out the rest of the site and make plans to join us!

About Holley LS Fest: Holley’s inaugural LS Fest event was held in 2010 at Beech Bend Raceway, in their hometown of Bowling Green, KY. The event has exploded in popularity since then, which stemmed the creation of LS Fest West in Las Vegas, Nevada back in 2017. The event celebrates everything and anything powered by the incredible GM LS or current gen GM LT engines! GM LS engines were introduced in 1997 in the Corvette and later Camaros, becoming more prevalent over time as they found their way into GM vans and trucks.
