What is there to do at LS Fest Texas?2023-01-25T21:15:16+00:00

For those who wish to participate with their vehicle, we have several packages available: Grand Champion Pack grants you access to the autocross, 3S Challenge, Dyno challenge, Countryside Cruise, Track X, and the Grand Champion specific Drag Class.

For those who do not want to participate in the Grand Champion competition, we also have a 3-day Autocross package. This allows you to run your vehicle in the autocross, dyno challenge, 3S Challenge, Track X, Countryside Cruise, and the appropriate Car Show class for your vehicle.

For our drag racing contingent, we have nine drag racing classes from which to choose. Please follow the link to find out more about class information. A drag race package allows a racer to participate in the Dyno Challenge, Friday Test-N-Tune, and Friday & Saturday drag racing.

If you’re not into putting your pride and joy through the ringer, we also have a 3-day car show pack available. This package is great as it includes gate passes for two people, and allows you to participate in the appropriate car show class for your vehicle, the countryside cruise, and the dyno challenge.

Another awesome LS Fest event that is sure to keep you vibin’ is our LS Fest Drift Challenge competition. Watch as professional and amateur drift drivers pilot their LS-powered rides around the inside road course at Texas Motor Speedway to determine who will reign victorious when all the smoke settles.

As a spectator, you can expect to be able to enjoy watching all of these events unfold over the course of the weekend while enjoying a large vendor midway to spec out parts for your current ride or project vehicle. We will also have a large selection of food vendors on-site to keep you going!

Can my buddy and I be placed in the same run group?2022-04-12T13:58:02+00:00

Run groups are selected as you register, make sure to speak with your buddy’s BEFORE you register. Run groups can not be changed once you purchase them.

I can no longer attend, how do I request a refund?2023-01-25T21:17:31+00:00

Sorry to hear that, please email lsfest@holley.com. Please note that no refunds will be issued. The exception to the rule is that refunds will be issued entirely in the event LS Fest can’t happen due to unforeseen circumstances or acts of God.

I have a father & son/daughter project. Can there be more than one driver registered for one car?2023-01-13T17:37:58+00:00

NEW starting in 2023 with the Autocross package – two drivers CAN use the same vehicle however both participants MUST purchase the Fun Run option – neither drivers can be eligible for competition or prizes.  Unfortunately, due to our method of keeping track of points and standings, Grand Champion Competition cannot be more than one registered driver per vehicle at Holley LS Fest events. If you’re participating in a Grand Champion competition or autocross, for example, having two drivers in one vehicle with one number on the vehicle will throw off any results if they are not recorded properly. One driver per vehicle helps ensure that all standings are accurate throughout the entirety of the event.  Two drivers may register the same vehicle for two different drag race classes, however at least one of the classes must be an index style run class.

Overview of Car Show Event for Participants:2023-01-25T21:18:38+00:00
  • 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 Donut Pit. 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 first two days.
What vehicles are welcome to participate at Holley LS Fest?2023-01-25T21:19:19+00:00

Do I need a helmet to participate in the Autocross, 3S Challenge?2023-02-02T15:55:00+00:00
