Chad Ryker's 1968 Chevrolet Camaro
Chad Ryker's '68 Camaro is one of the most-legit all-around street cars to ever compete in OPTIMA's Search for the Ultimate Street Car, presented by Advance Auto Parts.
We've profiled Chad Ryker's Pro-Touring Camaro here before, but a car this cool is worth re-visiting. After all, it is one of the most-legit all-around street cars you'll find anywhere and there's a good chance you might come across Chad's F-body just about anywhere, because he really does drive it so much. He's also been a force to be reckoned with on the track, with four full DriveOPTIMA seasons under his belt and consistent top-5 finishes in the season-long points chase.
Chad won the 2018 season-opener in Las Vegas, brought home another top-five finish in the QA1 GTV Class during the regular season and a 21st place overall finish at the 2018 OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational, presented by Advance Auto Parts.

Chad doesn't just limit his track activity to OPTIMA events. In fact, you'll find his Camaro at track events all over the West coast (and sometimes beyond). You can keep up with his exploits on his own blog, AutoXandTrack.com. If you want to get in on the fun, you can also check out the website for OPTIMA's Search for the Ultimate Street Car series, presented by Advance Auto Parts.
