Josh Leisinger Repeats as LS Fest West Grand Champion
Hot shoe Josh Leisinger has attended the annual LS Fest West in Las Vegas, NV only twice, and so far, he has already earned two grand champion titles. His second victory happened despite the blistering hot temperatures at the 2023 event, on the weekend of April 28-30.
Josh dominated the Vintage class, in his highly-prepared Summit Racing & Lucas Oil-sponsored 1964 Chevrolet Corvette on Forgeline one piece forged monoblock GS1R wheels. His performances included first place finishes in the Autocross, 3S (speed/steer/stop) Challenge, and Drag Racing portions of the event. (Josh set the quickest time of all classes in the 3S Challenge, and he ran a 10.7 second quarter mile at 135mph in the drag race, the quickest naturally-aspirated run of the entire weekend, regardless of class.) And he finished second in both the Track X and the Top 5 Shootout.
His closest competition of the weekend came from his brother, Jared Leisinger, who finished second overall in his own 1964 Chevrolet Corvette, which is also running on Forgeline one piece forged monoblock GS1R wheels. In fact, the entire Leisinger family fleet is equipped with Forgeline wheels.
Congrats to Josh and Jared for their successful weekend at the 2023 LS Fest West. And thanks for trusting Forgeline to help carry you to the top!
