Welcome to the Optima Search For the Ultimate Street Car Series Podcast! This show is produced twice-per-month show and will 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!

The 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!

2018 Recap:

Mike Dusold Crowned 2018 OUSCI Champ!

And just like that…the 2018 season is over and we have crowned Mike Dusold as our brand new OUSCI Champion! Listen in for full details on how the event went down, who finished where, who won each class, and all of the details you’ll need to know for the 2019 OSUSC season schedule (we’re headed back to Daytona)!

Thank you SO MUCH for allowing us to cover this season and for listening to each and every show. It’s fitting that this episode will release just before Thanksgiving because we are VERY thankful for you! Next month we will be back to discuss the 2019 rule package…but until then, Gobble Gobble.
