The NMCA and GM Performance Parts are pleased to announce that the 4th Annual GM Performance Parts LSX Shootout will take place at Gateway International Raceway near St. Louis, Missouri, the weekend of October 7-10, 2010.
The event, held in conjunction with the NMCA World Finals, is the largest LS gathering in the U.S. The LSX Shootout features awesome heads-up racing for the fastest LS-powered cars in the world, index-style and True Street racing for competitors of all levels, and a giant all LS-powered car show. This is “the” LS event of the year, with over $50,000 in cash and prizes, and it’s brought to you by GM Performance Parts. Presenting sponsor, GM High-Tech Performance magazine, will produce the official LSX Shootout Fan Guide and publish regular event press releases leading up to the LSX Shootout.
The LSX Shootout’s heads-up classes include Drag Radial, All Motor, and Real Street…all of which are wheels-up and hardcore. New for 2010 the LSX Shootout will celebrate the return of the Camaro with two classes just for 5th Gen muscle cars! Camaro Performers magazine is sponsoring the 5th Gen Camaro Challenge, an index class for new Camaros only, and GM High-Tech Performance will sponsor a heads-up 5th Gen Camaro Shootout on Sunday consisting of the fastest cars from the Camaro Challenge class. The Shootout also features two classes for mild to wild street-type LS-powered vehicles, LSX Rumble and True Street Challenge. The LSX Rumble class allows racers to pick their index, matching their street machine up against some of the fastest cars in the country. All racers competing in LSX Rumble may also compete for free in the True Street Challenge class on Saturday. Travel through the countryside then bring your LS-powered musclecar, truck or SUV back to the track for a three-run showdown to determine who has the baddest LSX-powered True Street car in the world! All class winners will receive big bucks, an LSX block, and the coveted winners jacket courtesy of GM Performance Parts and their host dealer, Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center.
New for 2010…GM Performance Parts will present special cash and prizes to the fastest LS-powered individual makes and models with their World’s Fastest LS Challenge. Who has the world’s fastest Camaro, Firebird, Corvette, GTO, G8, Cadillac, or Truck/SUV? GM Performance Parts wants to find out and will award each winner $250, a custom LSX Shootout winners jacket, and a bonus $250 prize if the car has a GM Performance Parts LSX Bow-Tie block.
