GM Performance Launches LSX Challenge Series
Called LSX Challenge Series, the competition will launch in March, during the NMCA season opener at Bradenton Motorsports Park. The competition is open to GM production-based LS and GM Performance Parts LSX engines and engine components.
Just like the previous LSX Shootout events, the new racing series will include the following classes: Drag Radial, All Motor, Real Street, Rumble and 5th Gen Camaro Challenge. The races, apart from the season opener, will be held at Atlanta Dragway ((NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals), Indianapolis Raceway Park (NMCA World Street Finals/LSX Shootout) and Beech Bend Raceway Park.
For the competitors, a shot at the championship can only be obtained by taking part in the LSX Shootout in Indiana and at least three of four races. This is because GMPP has reached an agreement with the LS Fest organizers that will give racers the opportunity to win championship points racing in the LSX Series.
“We are thrilled to launch the LSX Challenge Series and bring it to more competitors and fans around the country,” said Jamie Meyer, product integration manager for GM Performance Parts. “This is grass-roots racing at its finest and most exciting – and we expect it to grow, as more and more racers discover the competitive advantages of LS power.”
