Want in on the 2011 OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational? Here's how to do it -


Maybe you caught the 2010 OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational on SPEED or perhaps you noticed Brent Jarvis' Corvette in the newest issue of Hot Rod magazine and you've decided you want in on the OUSCI action. The question you may have now is, what do I do next? The first thing to do is get your vehicle of choice up to speed, both from a safety aspect and performance aspect. This is a competition for street cars, but that doesn't mean we don't encourage safety modifications, including better restraints and brakes. The next thing to do is find a qualifying event near you. Here are the list of qualifying events so far-

  • Run to the Coast: February 26-27, 2011
  • Run to the Shore: April 1-3, 2011
  • Run to Music City: May 28-29, 2011
  • Motor State Challenge: June 17-19, 2011
  • Heidt's Performance Car Challenge- Midwest: July 15-17, 2011
  • Holley LSFest II: September 9-11, 2011
  • Run Through the Hills: September 23-25, 2011

The next thing to do is sign up for one of those events and have a great time putting your vehicle through it's paces. If everything goes well, we'll see you in Las Vegas at the end of the year!
