If the GM Performance Parts LSX Shootout being held this October in Memphis sounds bitchin', but you aren't sure about putting your street-driven ride into the Drag Radial, All Motor, or Index classes, we have great news: the LSX True Street Challenge has just been added to the lineup with more than $4,000 in prizes!
GMPP will be doubling the purse and giving a custom winner's jacket to all LS-powered cars that win a category in NMCA's popular True Street class at the GM Performance Parts LSX Shootout held October 11-14, 2007, at Memphis Motorsports Park. Furthermore, if the overall fastest True Street competitor is in an LS-powered vehicle, GM Performance Parts will also give away an LSX Bow-Tie block valued at more than $3,000!
Knowing that there are thousands of potential "true" street competitors with LS-powered combinations that want to participate in the LSX Shootout, GMPP has decided to provide some serious cash and prizes. True Street ETs can range from 9 to 15 seconds, and everywhere in between.
NMCA's True Street class is designed for real street vehicles that are licensed, insured, and driveable on the street. True Street, which will be contested on Saturday, October 13, requires all competitors to make a 30-mile police-escorted cruise. After the cruise, there will be a cool-down period before the cars hit the track. Each competitor will then make three back-to-back passes down the strip. Category awards will be presented to the closest averages to (but not quicker than) 10.0, 11.0, 12.0, 13.0, 14.0, and 15.0 seconds. The King of Tennessee True Street award will be presented to the overall fastest competitor. All True Street competitors will also receive a free entry into the bracket racing competition on Sunday, October 14.
This is an awesome class designed for fast street drivers--so enter your LS-powered GM and we'll see you there! The True Street Challenge rules can be found at www.gmhightechperformance.com.

No Really--Nominate A Technician!In our July 2007 issue, a call was put out for you to recommend the best techs who ever laid an experienced hand on your rides. A couple months on, we are very surprised to see that hardly anyone has e-mailed us with technician nominations--and most of the ones we got specialized in 20-year-old Turbo Buicks! C'mon LS/LT guys: are you telling us that no good techs have ever worked on your vehicles? Give these guys some love and e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your recommendations. The sooner you do so, the sooner we can make 'em famous.
