DriveAutoX at Grissom AFB 2018 Results & Photos- NLO


OPTIMA Batteries' Search for the Ultimate Street Car Series, presented by Advance Auto Parts has been a wild success in the street car world. Street cars & trucks from all over North America converge on these events, which now sell out months in advance, for an action-packed weekend in front of a national TV audience. While the response has been overwhelmingly positive, we have received occasional feedback from a few folks, who wished that series would allow kit cars and other similar non-production vehicles to compete.

While that series was always intended for regular production vehicles, we appreciated the enthusiasm of the folks we heard from, although it was always difficult to know if they were lone voices or represented a much larger group. As OPTIMA created the all-new DriveAutoX Series, presented by FM3 Performance Marketing, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to test the waters with that group of enthusiasts and see if we could get them to come out to these events by creating a specific class just for them- NLO (No Limit Outlaw) sponsored by No Limit Engineering.

This is the class from mild to wild, just about anything goes although you'll have to follow the series tires rules. We're hoping it will draw the interest of some of those folks who asked about an opportunity in the other series and while turnout has been light and primarily production cars, like Corvettes, we're hoping to see more on the wild side as the season progresses, whether it's something from Factory Five or Ultima or one of the many variations of the Lamborghini that can be had. Here are the NLO results & photos from Grissom:
