Rich Willhoff's 2006 Chevrolet Corvettte

Rich Willhoff's 2006 Corvette is the two-time and defending Holley EFI GTL Class Champion and a top contender in OPTIMA's Ultimate Street Car Invitational.

Rich Willhoff burst onto the scene in OPTIMA's Search for the Ultimate Street Car series during the 2015 season. His 2006 Chevrolet Corvette was an instant contender in the Holley EFI GTL Class from day one. In fact, Willhoff has never finished lower than fourth place at an OUSCI qualifying event, was undefeated in three appearances in 2017 and hasn't finished lower than 2nd place since 2015. Willhoff's Corvette is also on the short list of contenders to win the OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational.

His ZO6 has proven itself to be so strong and so consistent, that Willhoff captured a second-straight Holley EFI GTL Class Championship in 2017 and only needed three events to do it. He will have to find that perfection again in 2018, as he is once again only signed up for three qualifying events. Can he join Bryan Johnson as a three-time class champion in OPTIMA's Search for the Ultimate Street Car series? We'll find out soon! The first event takes place on March 17th and 18th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Rich will be there. See the full schedule here.
