2020 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational
« on: October 27, 2020, 07:13:43 AM »
We have been invited and are proud to represent Power Stop Brakes at the Invitational at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX next weekend.
This is going to be one kick ass weekend of fun and racing.  At the same time there is the Hi Performance Expo Autocross for $25K in the winner. 

The invitational is normally held during SEMA and then after the SEMA show concludes the racing starts.  With SEMA being Covid cancelled, Optima changed the venue to COTA and is trying to raise the bar on the event.  I'm sure the weekend will be a whirlwind of activities but I'll get as many pictures as possible and share them here after the event.

This was an opportunity of a lifetime to go race with this caliber of car!  I had an absolute blast and I will end up around mid-pack in the final results.  The F1 track was very intimidating at first because it's such a fast track, by my last session though, I was having a blast and the TA ran great!
