The 2012 OPTIMA® Ultimate Street Car Invitational This Weekend on SPEED
In just it's fifth year, the OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational, presented by Royal Purple and KN, has already become one of the most-highly anticipated automotive events of the year. Competitors vie for coveted spots in the field at qualifying events all year long, they thrash on their cars, to get the absolute most out of them and then leave it all on the track (and sometimes off the track a little bit), hoping to be named "The Ultimate Street Car."
This year's field includes iconic cars, like Dr. Mark Capener's Lamborghini Gallardo and iconic drivers, including two rednecks from the new TV show, RU Faster Than a Redneck and MMA start Josh Barnett. The show will also be hosted by wrestling legend, Bill Goldberg, so you'll definitely want to check it out!
The fifth edition of the OUSCI (or OPTIMA Challenge, as some like to call it), will debut on SPEED on March 10th at 11AM Eastern, but if you are in Detroit for Autorama, you have a chance to see the world premiere Saturday night. Be sure to stop by the Pfaff Designs booth at Autorama for more details on that very special (and free) event.
If you are watching at home and would like to chat with some of the participants, be sure to head over to the Chat Room at Pro-Touring.com, where some of the competitors will be hanging out during and after the broadcast.
