  • The Off-Road Desert Launch is always a hit! Long travel pre-runner style trucks and buggies and their drivers will be headed to Vegas once again to send it at LS Fest West! A large jump will be constructed within the same dirt track containing the Off Road Challenge. There will be several opportunities to see the action for throughout the weekend.
  • The Cinco De Mayo Tire De Fry’O Burnout Contest will return to LS Fest West for 2019. In this event several pre-selected vehicles from various LS Fest event segments (i.e. pro-touring, off-road, drift, drag, show-n-shine, etc.) compete against one another in order to establish who can provide the best gross display of horsepower for the night. Contact Holley at [email protected] if you’d like to be considered for the contest!

Motorsports pros Rick Jones, Kevin Lawrence, Dave River, and Jeff Wick have announced the rebirth of the Midwest Pro Stock Association (MPSA), a drag racing series formed by Jim Wick in the late 1980s. The series folded following the passing of Wick in 2002. 

“A group of us were together at the World Series of Drag Racing at Cordova—which itself is an end-of-the-season match race—and we thought it would be a good deal to bring back match racing year-round like they used to. So I called [Jim’s son] Jeff Wick to see if we could use the MPSA name. He was on board and even wanted to help and compete, too,” Lawrence said to PRI. “Jeff will compete in the Matchmaker car they haven’t run since Jim’s passing.”
