Holley Announces Inaugural LS Fest West For Las Vegas in 2017

Holley Performance Products has announced the inaugural LS Fest West, an extension of Holley’s increasingly popular LS Fest event, set for May 5-7, 2017, in Las Vegas.

LS Fest is a celebration of anything and everything powered by the GM LS engine or current-generation LT engine. It didn’t take long for the original Holley LS Fest to become a go-to event for anyone looking to put their LS-powered project to the test and for spectators looking to learn all they can about the LS platform.

LS Fest West is not replacing the original Holley LS Fest that started it all in Bowling Green in 2010. Now there are two LS Fests – Vegas in the spring, and the original in the fall – so LS enthusiasts on the West Coast can enjoy all the best aspects of the event closer to home.

Everything that made the original LS Fest such a success will be part of LS Fest West in Las Vegas – Autocross, a Road Course Challenge, drag racing, a Dyno Challenge, Drift Challenge, Show-n-Shine, 3S Challenge, and more. The event will unfold at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, a multipurpose facility ideal for bringing LS Fest westward and perfect for introducing an all-new element for 2017: off-road competition.

“We’ve heard from numerous LS enthusiasts out west how they would love to attend the event if only it were closer,” said Holley’s Director of Marketing, Bill Tichenor. “LS Fest West is our answer to these requests and will allow fans of the LS engine to experience the same kind of sensory overload that everyone has enjoyed for the past seven years in our hometown of Bowling Green, Ky.”

Created to help launch Holley’s new line of LS engine products and fuel injection, Holley LS Fest has become a can’t-miss event with tremendous growth in both participants and spectators since its inception. Today, the company manufacturers an entire catalog of LS engine parts and chassis-specific LS swap components that can be found at www.LSheadquarters.com. For a taste of what LS Fest is all about, watch the event overview video of the the 2016 Bowling Green event here.
