19 Amazing Rides From The Chevrolet Performance LSX Shootout

One of the coolest things about the NMCA is their Chevrolet Performance Challenge Series, a set of races that allows any GM-bodied, LSX-powered vehicle to duke it out in several different classes, from heads-up to index. A very special race in the Chevrolet Performance Challenge Series is the LSX Shootout, thanks to its larger payouts and prestige. We were on the property for the 2016 Chevrolet Performance LSX Shootout at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis this weekend, and picked 19 of our favorite LSX-packing rides for you to check out!

1. Adam Hodson’s boosted 1973 Camaro could almost be considered a sleeper … that is, until you see it ripping off nine-second passes in True Street.

2. Al Corda has been racing for decades, and has been a dominating figure in the Street King class.
