Optima Batteries released the second wave of Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational Invitees early this week. We did some digging around to see just who these people are and what cars they might be bringing to OUSCI. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down images of all the vehicles associated with this list. If you know any of these names below not pictured and have an image of their vehicle, please feel free to add it to the comment section.

We featured images of these vehicles in our first write-up of 2014 OUSCI participants: OUSCI ROUND ONE COMPETITORS LIST (https://www.pro-touring.com/threads/110871-USCA-Drivers-Invited-to-the-2014-Optima-Ultimate-Street-Car-Invitational-Closer-Look)

Many of these competitors either won the last USCA event in Pittsburgh or won a spot in the Top 20 Non-Qualifying Points Leaders

Awesome, looking forward to this.

And FYI, the ticket link goes to the 2013 event. For this year's event, can tickets be bought at the gate?

Sorry about that. We corrected the link. As for purchasing tickets at the gate, we are going to double check on that. As of right now, I don't believe they will be available at the gate; only online. I will make another post once we get confirmation on that.

Great new. Just confirmed that you can indeed buy tickets at the gate. They highly encourage buying them before of course so you don not have to wait in line and can avoid the crowds. If you are still on the fence about coming and won't be deciding until the day before or even the day of, then you do have the option to purchase those tickets at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Thank you very much Brandy, I appreciate it! I might try and buy them beforehand, it's just a matter of sending out the link to everyone I'm dragging along. Plus I'm on the fence about Sunday, I'll already be in Vegas from Tuesday (but I'm probably going to get no sympathy from the vendors having to show up Thursday/Friday the week before to set up for SEMA!).

Got my ticket. Wish it was the "Golden Ticket" though!!
