Hello To The Lightning Community,


Back, By Popular Demand, LightningFest 6, 2008 !

The 6th LightningFest will be at KCIR in KC, MO. The date is 15-17 August 2008, and the format will change slightly. Hopefully, the earlier date will better accomodate those who have had limitations of attendance due to children returning to school.

Stay tuned for further information on racing & show schedule, classes, events and registration information. We will have a website up shortly.

A special thank you to those who have volunteered to help make this event a reality, and a big thank you to Big D and Nan for their unyielding support!!

Awesome job MJ and to all the others behind the scenes who all got together
to pull this off. Count me in for sure. Been to 4 of 5 and they just seem to get
better and better every year.
Some sights I always loved to see:
1. The WASHLO guys coming in after traveling half the country, met a few of them and great people to talk to.
2. The Texas and Illinios caravans,saw the Texas caravan one year come in must have had 35 trucks. What a sight!!!!!!!!
3. Gen 1's that have new paint schemes, beautiful Gen1 and Gen2 trucks at the truck show.
4. The Lfest participant group photo, wow what a sight to see all those L's.
5. The hotel hijinks going on.....some are legendary....all I can say is look out
for the crazy German and his friends...oh and it's not Pop rocks they're giving you in that packet!!!!!!!!!!!:D J/K Andre, hope to see you there, still need to buy my Lfest DVD from you for last year's Lfest.

Hope to see many old faces and many new ones there. For those that don't think they could go then try what a few others have done:
1. Hitch a ride with a fellow L/Harley owner and leave the truck, but i bet you'll wish you didn't once you get here.
2. Fly in, rent a car, and beat the hell out of it on the quarter mile, they had a rental car class at Lfest5, Johnny L vs. photographer of MMFF in finals.:gl:
3. Get 2 or 3 L's on a trialer and haul them together, a gas saver for some.

Sorry for the long post guys but it's just great to see that I'll get to have those fun memories again. Hope to see my MKLO buddies and a few others in August.Start saving your money now guys and get vacation time penciled in.

MJ, I signed up as one who could attend and help so if you need it just PM me and I'll do my best to help you.Thanks again,looking forward to getting my Lfest6 static window cling!

No, they like us. the rub was that he hotel had a big block of rooms rented already during our time. Dwight is working on it.


Hope you find a hotel soon. Trying to figure out howuch this is going to cost me. Normally not an issue,have a wedding to pay for in Nov. My one and only Daughter is getting married Nov.22nd. Gonna cost a few pennies. BTW, what was wrong with the one we stayed at last year? Did we screw that up? Nice place. MikeyP

In the past the germans have done that.

The road trip is part of the fun. I'm driving 1300 miles in a crew cab F350 towing the lightning. Again!
Get in the truk and get after it

Hi I'm a new member, and I'd love to make it out to Lightingfest 6, but I was wondering what it costs to just go, not show or race or anything.
