Car Show Overview:

  • For 2023, we are adopting a new way of selecting vehicles for awards. LS Fest is a great place to see some of if not the best LS and current Gen LT vehicles out west. Our car show is designed to showcase what enthusiasts and builders have been working on without adopting a “Concours d’Elegance” level of stringent evaluation for each vehicle. We’re all here to have a great time and recognize what our staff feels represents the best in each category.
  • A celebrity panel of industry professionals, builders, car content creators, and influencers are joining us to select a winner for each category (listed above) along with additional awards including the following: Best Body, Engine Compartment, Undercarriage, Best Paint, Best Interior, Best Engine, Best Engineered, Holley’s Presidents Pick, & Sponsors Pick.
  • All registrants will be parked at the Car Show corral
  • Each car show participant receives a car number on their decal. Awards will be distributed and winners recognized early Saturday evening at at the Burnout Challenge area. Be present to find out if you are a winner. Please refer to the schedule of events for the specific time. You do not need to be present at the time your car is reviewed. Our staff will be combing the grounds throughout the event.

Note: Participants who win multiple events are only eligible to win one jacket.
