Tags: Driveoptima
OPTIMA's Search for the Ultimate Street Car series is so much fun, guys like John Woods pull their not-yet-completed cars out of the shop, so they can run them in these events. In Woods' case, his 1970 Pontiac Trans Am was in the midst of receiving a new paint job, when he decided to take it down to New Orleans in primer and run for the weekend. OPTIMA's 2017 Search for the Ultimate Street Car visited seven different tracks in as many different states, before the grand finale took place immediately following the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Another sold-out field of competitors converged on NOLA Motorsports Park on the weekend of April 21-23rd, with competitors vying for qualifying opportunities in a multitude of classes. The following competitors received invitations at NOLA-
