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.
3. Bill Travato’s 2013 Camaro is stunning to look at in Real Street class trim, for sure.
4. Brian Schick brought out his super-clean 2000 Camaro that was running in the nine-second zone all weekend.
5. Casey Anderson’s LSX-swapped 1986 Chevy Truck showed why the popularity of GM square body trucks is so high.
6. Donald Dixon’s boosted 2005 GTO is just a bad nine-second machine.
7. Glenn Pushis won the Chevrolet Performance Stock (GM crate motors) class with his sleek-looking 2013 Camaro.
8. Jeff Heintz’s 2003 Z06 just has that aggressive stance we love to see in a Corvette.
9. Jessie Coulter and his 1991 Camaro were knocking down seven-second passes in Real Street with ease.
10. Kurt Anderson’s 1969 Street King class Camaro hangs the hoops on nearly every pass.
11. Mark Carlyle’s stunning 2007 Z06 still holds the title of quickest IRS car in the world, and is capable of low six-second quarter mile passes.
12. Matt Davis’s 1957 Chevy Pickup might not have been the quickest vehicle on the grounds, but it sure looked good in the lanes.
13. Phil Frantz’s yellow 2008 Z06 was hard to miss while it was cranking off low 10-second passes.
14. Rob Farley’s 1998 Corvette has been going rounds for years in the LSX Rumble class.
15. Doug Patterson’s LSX-powered 1978 Cutlass just looks classy … and it runs deep into the 10-second zone.
16. Tim Lemay’s 1987 Buick Regal is an eight-second capable machine that won the LSX True Street competition.
17. Tim Martin’s 2010 Camaro grabbed our attention with the classic stripes, bright orange paint, and 10-second elapsed times.
18. Tim Swisher’s 1999 WS6 Trans Am is a flawless F-Body that we just had to put on our list.
19. Todd Heck represented the old-school muscle in Street King with his sharp 1963 Nova.
