Trucks Gone Wild! Off-Road Competitions at 2019 LS Fest West
Ford Truck Enthusiasts was on the scene and deep in the down-and-dirty for some hardcore off-road fun.
This year hoards of attendees crashed Las Vegas to attend the 2019 Holley Fest West. We saw burnouts, hooning, drifting, racing, and a whole lotta’ amazing rides at the Show-N-Shine.
One highlight was the off-roading. We witnessed LS-swapped vehicles take on a wild course, do some epic jumps, and kick up a lot of dirt. Many modded out Ford trucks were in attendance. These F-150s, Raptors, and more were up for the challenge and truly tore it up. And this was no easy competition. The track was built by Ultra 4 Racing, the creators of King Of The Hammers.
The trucks were heavily modified for the event. Many were rocking a pre-runner setup, perfect for the terrain.
And that is how you do it.
The trucks tore around the track, taking on the hills and taking flight.
We saw a lot of skillful driving, they make it look so easy! The trucks handily conquered the track.
The importance of off-road mods was apparent. Beefy tires, modded suspensions, lifts, truck body armor, and light bars made the trucks perform incredibly against the dirt, dust, and vertical challenges.
These mods also gave each ride a distinctive style as well as individual advantages.
But one event that gets the crowd on their feet is the jumps. Can you blame them?
Each truck brought the heat, and got some amazing air.
The launches were badass. Period.
It is always amazing to watch these trucks defy logic and gravity!
If you missed out on the action, don’t worry. Holley is bringing the 2019 LS Fest East to Bowling Green, KY, September 6-8. Check it out!
