OPTIMA's 2015 Search for the Ultimate Street Car GTV Points Chase Post-Pike's Peak


Seven of nine events have been run in the 2015 OPTIMA Search for the Ultimate Street Car, presented by Advance Auto Parts and Kyle Tucker's 1970 Chevy Camaro has a commanding lead over his Detroit Speed running mate, Chris Porter and his 1986 Porsche 948. Will either run in the final double points event at Auto Club Speedway? If they don't, can anyone catch them and win the GTV championship? Which other GTV competitors who have not yet punched their ticket for Las Vegas will be able do so, either in the remaining two qualifying events or by accumulating enough season-long points?
