2013 OUSCI Recap- Wilwood Disc Brakes Speed Stop Challenge

16-Brian-Hobaugh-Corvette-OUSCI-2013_352.jpgThe Wilwood Disc Brakes Speed Stop Challenge has always been a very hotly-contested event in the OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational, presented by Royal Purple and KN Filters. However, when the format was changed last year, to include a hairpin turn and a short slalom course, it seemed like the field might spread out more, due to the longer amount of time needed to complete the course. That wasn't the case this year, as Brian Hobaugh's 1965 Corvette Stingray edged out Todd Earsley's 2003 Mitsubishi Evo by just .008 seconds, the closest finish in OUSCI history.

In fact, the spread between first and 20th place was just 1.173 seconds and the difference across all 49 competitors was just 5.874 seconds. If that number seems lower than the number of competitors in other OUSCI events, it may be due to the fact that the Speed Stop Challenge takes place after the RideTech Autocross and some vehicles drop out during the course of the day, due to various issues. Other vehicles were moved to exhibition status and were not included in these final results, if they did not attempt to compete in all of the OUSCI events.

While the Wilwood Disc Brakes Speed Stop Challenge would seem to favor competitors with all-wheel drive and modern, anti-lock brakes, three (Hobaugh, Finch Voelkel) of the top-four finishers did not have either on their vehicles. In fact, the final standings show numerous instances of modern vehicles finishing within hundredths of a second on either side of cars and trucks old enough to be smog-exempt at the DMV.
