Lone Star Corvette Club
Just bought a new Corvette? Or just love them? You have come to the right place! The Lone Star Corvette Club is dedicated to the Corvette lifestyle and the people that own them. Our Club slogan says it all:
Good Friends… Great Cars!
Founded in 1982, the Club now has over 1,000 members – each with his/her own story to tell of how they found that perfect “Vette.” Based in the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex, it offers just about any activity an owner of “America’s Sports Car” could want: Road Trips, Day Trips, Open Road Racing, Drag Racing, Autocross, NCRS (National Corvette Restorers Society), Car Shows, Displays and Parades, the Lone Star Corvette Classic, Club Meetings, and most of all, fun times with good friends.
The Club takes at least one significant road trip each year, usually in conjunction with a Corvette event. To get an even better feel about what this Club is all about, click on the “Newsletter” button and read the latest issue of our award winning, online, newsletter.
Check out the events and activities LSCC has scheduled for the next few months. Some of the activities have limited capacity, online sign-up recommended.
Events, activities, trips, and volunteer opportunities can be found on the Club’s online Recreation Event List. Check back often for new activities, trips, events, shows, and volunteer opportunities.

GoodGuys Lone Star Spring Nationals
March 17/18/19, 2017
The Club has once again been offered the opportunity by The GoodGuys Rod & Custom Association to be the Host Club at their 7th Spring Lone Star Nationals to be held at the Texas Motor Speedway on Friday, March 17th through Sunday, March 19th.
As the host club, we provide volunteers to assist with the event. As we have done for the past few years we need volunteers to help park cars in designated areas on Saturday (20 Volunteers - One Shift, 5 volunteers - 2nd Shift) and on Sunday (10 Volunteers for two (2) shifts.
In addition we have additional volunteer opportunities on Friday, Saturday and Sunday verifying participant tickets at the entrance to the south tunnel at TMS. Details of all volunteer opportunities are provided below.
The Goodguys Rod & Custom Association makes a substantial donation to LSCC, which helps fund many Club activities and charitable donations. In addition to free admission and parking for ALL THREE DAYS of the Event ($20 value), volunteers will receive the following:
- On Saturday, FREE Entry into the "Mighty Muscle Show" (If your cars is a '55-'72) for LSCC volunteers ($45 value.)(Good-Guys membership ($35) is needed for the entry to be put into the computer systems.) Since the cutoff year for the event is 1972 on Friday and Saturday, the vehicles would need to fit the cutoff year for the event.
- On Sunday, FREE Entry to the Super Sunday Get-Together ($30 value) that allows all LSCC members' vehicles to come into the show and be judged.
- Preferred parking area at event for LSCC volunteers' cars and early entrance into event.
