Excitement! Thrills! Chills!
Nothing gets the heart pumping like pushing the limits of your own car on a world class race track. As we all know, it can be a challenge finding a place to safely push our vehicles to their limits (without breaking any laws). Local track days can be great, but for those amateur drivers who would like to take things to the next level, this is the time to step up to a competition like the “OPTIMA Batteries Ultimate Street Car Qualifying Series”.
“Sanctioned by the USCA (Ultimate Street Car Association), this 10 event series gives weekend warriors the opportunity to hit professional tracks all over the country from March through November, with the chance to go on to compete in the “OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational” at the end of the year.” says Brandyn Lynch of Kahn Media. “These three day events con- sist of road rally, speed stop, and autocross segments along with a full day on the road course.”
This is a fantastic opportunity to put your car through its paces and find your own limits, while enjoying the camaraderie of your fellow competitors.
The full list of Qualifying Events is shown below. If you’re interested, register as promptly as possible.
