OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational

[VIDEO] Optima's Search for the Ultimate Street Car Visits the NCM Motorsports Park


The OPTIMA Batteries Search for the Ultimate Street Car made a stop earlier this month at the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park in Bowling Green. This is one of the eight events that culminates in the 2015 OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in November.

If you’re not familiar with the event, drivers compete in variety of activities including an autocross and a road course. The NCM Motorsports Park offers both and so it became the third stop on the 2015 schedule.

Now they’re even happier after already celebrating their first win with the Corvette last weekend at the Optima Ultimate Street Car event in Fort Worth, Texas!
