SEMA 2016 and OUSCI Results!

SEMA 2016 is now in the rear view mirror, and Danny Popp is back as defending champion for OUSCI 2016! In this show we dug into the details of the week beginning with announcements live from the OPTIMA Press Conference on Thursday of the SEMA Show. Highlights there included the announcement of the 10 Golden Ticket winners, the 2017 OSUSC season schedule, the all new GTC vehicle class….and also the all new AUTOCROSS Only series!

Following that we gave a full recap of OUSCI 2016. In short – it was amazing, fun, and featured some of the most unbelievable cars and drivers the series has ever seen. Enjoy the show and we’ll talk to you after Thanksgiving with our 2017 Season preview!
