PowerStop Brakes Speed Stop at the 2018 OUSCI


The PowerStop Brakes Speed Stop Challenge is one of five segments that make up the OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational, presented by Advance Auto Parts, but it might be the most-unique of the five. The basic premise is to test the acceleration and braking of vehicles in a relatively-short course on unprepared pavement. The course layout at the 2018 OUSCI was a "mirror" course with a left and right side, although the courses weren't identical and the left side appeared to be consistently longer course than the right side.

Competitors in the PowerStop Brakes Speed Stop accelerate from a standing stop for roughly 1/8 of a mile, some making it into second gear, depending on their gearing, before heading into a sharp turn. They accelerate again, go through a slight chicane before entering a stop box. Vehicles must stop completely in the box without knocking over cones to register a clean time and the combined best times on the two courses are added together for a combined time and final score. As with the other timed segments, first place receives 100 points and each subsequent finishing position receives one less point per position.

While many of the cars in the field feature modern features like traction control, all-wheel drive and anti-lock brakes to assist them in this event, those features don't always result in an automatic win. In the 2018 OUSCI, it was Austin Barnes and his 2010 Dodge Viper posting the fastest combined time on the left and right courses. See the full results below, as well as a massive gallery of images from this iconic street car event. You can also see the overall OUSCI results here.
