DriveOPTIMA at PPIR 2015 Album Two
OPTIMA's Search for the Ultimate Street Car series first visited Pike's Peak International Raceway in Fountain, Colorado, during the 2015 season. Ever since that first visit, Bob Boileau and his staff have made the Colorado stop one of the favorites in the DriveOPTIMA series. Class winners and qualifiers in that first visit included Jake Rozelle's '69 Camaro winning GTV, while James Shipka's '67 Camaro received the OUSCI invite. In the GTS class, Dustin Rogers' (pictured above) 2012 Mitsubishi Evo took home the class win and the Vegas invite. In the GTL class, Alexandra Zust became the first woman to win her way into the OUSCI at a qualifying event in her 2005 Lotus Elise, while Anthony Cuthbert's 2013 Fiat 500 Abarth picked up the K&N Spirit of the Event invitation. In the GT Class, Jordan Priestley's 2011 Camaro SS took home the class win, with Aaron Sockwell's 2015 Mustang punching it's ticket to Sin City.
