Chevrolet Performance Ups the Ante for LSX Shootout
The 12th annual Chevrolet Performance LSX Shootout just got a lot better thanks to the generosity of its title sponsor. All class winners will receive an LSX Bowtie block, courtesy of Chevrolet Performance, that is valued at over $3,000 each*, in addition to the purse and contingency winnings that racers are eligible to win.
The LSX Shootout goes down during the Quick Fuel Technology NMCA Bluegrass Nationals, presented by Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center over the weekend of May 17-20 at Beech Bend Raceway.
The highly acclaimed LSX Bowtie blocks are part of the potential $50,000 available in purse, prizes, and giveaways during the longest running LS/LT-based national event. The categories available for the LSX Bowtie block include the Brian Tooley Racing Real Street Shootout, Chevrolet Performance Stock, Proform Rumble, LME Street King, and Gear Vendors LSX True Street (Overall Winner).
Beech Bend Raceway is being hailed as the “LS Capital of the World” thanks the two biggest LS-based competitions held there. The event kicks off May 17th with a special LSX Shootout Racer Appreciation Dinner where NMCA officials have over $10,000 in parts and prizes to giveaway in a FREE raffle. Another highlight is the brand-new Chevrolet Performance Street Car Challenge with free entries going to the first 75 enthusiasts to sign up for the event.
The LSX Shootout has been a longstanding tradition in the modern small-block street and race scene and the 2018 version is bigger, bolder, and more fun thanks to our partners at Chevrolet Performance and Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center.
