2011 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational Airs Saturday Feb 25 On SPEED

Posted by on February 24, 2012 - more

As we all know, SEMA is a great many wonderful things. Every year for the past 4 years, Optima Batteries has been making it even more special with the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational – OUSCI.

It is one thing to look awesome on the show floor, but then Optima Batteries ups the ante and throws down the gauntlet and asks the question; Will it Go as well as it Shows?

Most of the entries are qualifiers from earlier events, but there are also Golden Ticket invitations that are given out at SEMA.

If you are a car guy, set your DVR/TiVo for this Saturday, February 25th on SPEED Channel. With host Bill Goldberg, Kevin Bird from 2 Guys Garage, AJ from Overhaulin’ and a whole cast of world class builders, you would be nuts to miss it.

For Ford Mustang fans especially, you will not be disappointed. We have Paul Brown behind the wheel of the chase/camera car. Who is Paul Brown, you ask so innocently? Only the winner of the 2011 Pirelli World GTS Challenge in a Boss 302S and son of legendary Kenny Brown.

The 2011 OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational will premiere on SPEED this Saturday, Feb. 25 at 2 p.m. ET.

You may also view the trailer on OPTIMA Batteries’ YouTube page. The two-minute trailer includes dramatic on-track footage of every challenge, interviews with OPTIMA Invitational participants and commentary by this year’s hosts, Bill Goldberg and Adrienne Janic.
