What Kind of Batteries Do Race Cars Use?

OPTIMA Batteries
Elkhart Lake, WI

While Iron Mike has been spending the week following the NHRA circuit, way up in Minnesota, OPTIMA Jim stayed closer to home.  He took the 50 minute drive up from OPTIMA World Headquarters to spend the week at Road America for the Road Race Showcase.

The Showcase isn't just about the American Le Mans Series, although that is the biggest draw of the weekend.  The Showcase weekend features eight races in total, including the SCCA Pro-Am Trans Am Series, IMSA GT3 Challenge, USF2000 National Championship, Cooper Tires Prototype Lites and a huge gathering of Corvettes. 

As he did last year, OPTIMA Jim walked pit road to see if he could spot OPTIMA Batteries like he did last year and the results were not disappointing.  As we saw last year, many of the top sports car teams in the country continue to choose OPTIMA batteries and do so, because they count on them to power their cars and start their engines when it is needed most.
