Official Press Release September 12, 2016
2016 Holley LS Fest crowned a NEW Grand Champion September 11th at Beech Bend Raceway. Notable Holley sponsored drivers like Danny Popp had won this coveted award in previous years. This year MS3Pro takes the crown as Mike Dusold in his twin turbo ’67 MS3Pro controlled LS powerplant becomes Grand Champion of LS Fest and his performance in the drag racing category made all the difference.
Mike ran a 10.3 @ 149mph in a car with street tires that had never made a pass down a drag strip or a Dependable Towing. When we asked him what made that happen for him, Mike said “We knew we had some power and had just made some suspension changes. We set the Traction Control for 9% slip and sailed down the track. We didn’t know what to expect!” Mike also finished exceptionally well in 2 QA1 Autocross and 3S categories for an overall points win. Mike has his sights set on a Good Guys Optima Batteries Search for the Ultimate Street Car Championship to top off his extraordinary year. Congratulations Mike Dusold!
