Let's Go SCCA Racing!
We're fans of all kinds of motorsports, from the very top levels, all the way down to the grassroots folks, who hit their local autocross a few times a year. In fact, you may even see some of us competing in various events. We know a lot of folks in the racing community use our products, which is why we sponsor so many different forms of racing, from the NHRA and Pirelli World Challenge, to the Lucas Oil Off Road and Late Model racing series.
One local group we've had the pleasure of sponsoring for many years is the Milwaukee Region of the SCCA. The Sports Car Club of America and their regional organizations provide opportunities for just about anyone who has an interest in competitive driving, to get out on a track or course and compete in everything from Tercels to Town Cars. These autocross events are often inexpensive and relatively-safe ways for folks of all ages to dip their toe in the water of competitive motorsports.
Now that we're into April, the snow here in Wisconsin is finally starting to melt, which means wide-open parking lots will soon be available for our autocrossing pleasure. In fact, the Milwaukee Region Season Opener is just around the corner on Sunday, April 14th at Miller Park in Milwaukee. However, registration for this event closes at midnight on Friday, April 12th. One of the cool things we've done for this event is provided two gift certificates for free OPTIMA® batteries.
Unlike golf outings, where the guy who can already whack a golfball 350 yards wins a free driver (as if he needs more help), the two OPTIMA gift certificates will be awarded at random to competitors in the event, regardless of how fast or slow they are. If you've ever thought about getting involved in motorsports, this might be the perfect opportunity. If you happen to be in the Milwaukee area and participate in this event, you may even come home with a free battery. That's not a bad deal at all! We hope to see you out having fun this summer!
