The OSUSC Podcast – Episode #3


Welcome to the Show!

Welcome to the OPTIMA Search For the Ultimate Street Car Series Podcast! Now that OSUSC is into it’s second season we thought that a full twice–per-month show would be a great way to keep people informed on everything going on, from rules discussions, to event coverage, and to feature interviews with competitors and people of interest!

This show is hosted by myself (Rob Kibbe) and Race Director Jimi Day. Our goal is to bring you all of the latest and greatest information possible…plus have plenty of fun along with way. Feel free to e-mail us with feedback and questions, and we’ll work as many of them can into the show!

We are now in iTunes! Stitcher and Soundcloud will follow soon. Please give us an iTunes rating and share with your friends!  As always you can find the latest and greatest updates at

Feature Interview – Cam Douglass

We were lucky enough to have Cam Douglass from OPTIMA Batteries on for our very first show interview. For those of you that enjoy participating in and following the OPTIMA Series, or the OUSCI events, this is the guy you have to thank for it.

As you’ll learn in this interview, the Series we are blessed to enjoy today was the results of a lot of dots getting connected along the way in Cams, beginning with his fathers appreciation of buying high quality cars that would last a long time. Later in the 1970’s a buddy of his was convinced that his 1970 1/2 Camaro Z/28 should be able to carve corners with Porsches (and showed him so first hand). That lead to – no joke – his ownership of a muscle car centric used car dealership, and later to taking the helm for OPTIMA Batteries!

Thanks for the great interview, Cam!
