May 5-7: Holley LS Fest West
Last weekend was the Holley LS Fest West event held at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the first time ever. JDP Motorsports was represented by a number of cars at the event, including all three of our development vehicles raced by members of the JDP Team. There was a lot of strong competition at the event, including the JDP Motorsports 2017 C7 Corvette piloted by JDP President Jordan Priestley in the Grand Championship.

Road Course - 3rd Place (See results.)
The road course at Las Vegas Motor Speedway is challenging, and racers were especially tested by the hundred degree weather. Watch one of our Road Course runs here.
Frankey, The JDP Vette, and Evilynn wait for the next round.
Autocross - 7th Place (See results.)
The Autocross was an incredibly competitive event, with racers working hard up until the last minute to shave valuable tenths of a second off of their times. We started strong in the morning in fourth place before the break. When autocross started up again, the competition had shifted into high gear. Watch one of our Autocross runs here.

The JDP trailer.
Over the weekend, racers could participate in the Poker Run, gathering cards from the JDP trailer and various others at the event and one from an off-site locatoin in the city to earn an extra five points in the final standings. Between runs, the cars were displayed by the JDP trailer. Other contests included the drift challenge, show-n-shine, burnout contest, and the dyno challenge.
Grand Champion - 4th Place Overall (See results.)
LS Fest West was a great event, and we had a good time racing, talking with vendors at the booths, and meeting people. Though we were just shy of the top three, we're looking forward to the next LS Fest West event.
