The 13thAnnual LSX Shootout returns home to Memphis International Raceway, the site of the original event that helped kick-off the LS drag racing craze in 2007. The official championship categories for the Chevrolet Performance Challenge Series are CP Stock, presented by Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center, Proform Rumble, and LME Street King. The Brian Tooley Racing Real Shootout, hosted during the LSX Shootout, will once again receive a championship ring and participate in the Champions Dinner during the PRI Show. It retains the same format as last year with the field including the quickest LS/LT powered Edelbrock Xtreme Street entries. Every NMCA event will feature the popular Chevrolet Performance Street Car Challenge, offering a limited free-entry promotion to the first 75 cars.
