Now going into its fifth year, the OPTIMAŽ Ultimate Street Car Invitational, has evolved to become one of the most highly-anticipated and widely covered events in the automotive performance world. Each year, OPTIMA Batteries identifies several events that will serve as qualifiers, where cars are chosen to compete later this year in the 2012 OUSCI, which takes place annually in Nevada immediately following the SEMA Show.

Two qualifying events have already taken place, the Run to the Alamo and the Run to the Coast. However, there are still several more opportunitites to qualify and we're doing our best to find events in geographically diverse locations, to attract more entrants. The next two events are the OPTIMAŽ Faceoff at the HOT ROD Power Tour in Arlington, Texas on June 9th and the OPTIMAŽ Faceoff at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin on June 22-24th.

You can find the entry form for the Faceoff at the HOT ROD Power Tour event here (http://optimainvitational.com/2012 HRPT Entry Form.pdf) and the entry form for the Faceoff at Road America here. (http://optimainvitational.com/Entry Form-RA12_fnl.pdf)

Qualifying events are open to the public and offer a great way for automotive enthusiasts to preview the top talent that will move on to OPTIMA's Ultimate Street Car Invitational. Each regional qualifying event will follow a format similar to the OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational with a combination of segments to include autocross;road course; braking and acceleration; style & design competition and road rally; and additional activities, which will vary per event. More than one vehicle will be selected for the OUSCI from each of the Faceoff events and OPTIMA encourages all street-legal vehicle years, makes and models to participate.
