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!

Dave Kass: QA1 and OSUSC in 2019!

For our first show of 2019 we’re pleased to bring QA1’s own Dave Kass on the show. QA1 is the new sponsor of the Autocross segment for the series and will ALSO be providing on track support at all events this season! QA1 has a rich history in racing that pre-dates the OPTIMA series even, and the plan of attack (and people) they’ll provide at events are reflect that. Support will be provided for all competitors regardless of product lines. They love this series as much as we do and at the end of the day it’s all about helping everyone get onto the track and have fun together!

QA1 also unveiled a new line of products at SEMA 2018 and the one that may have stopped the show in its tracks was the all new MOD shock series. It’s an an on-the-car re-valvable shock…and it’s dry!  Dave gave the details on it for us- listen in for more.

Our next show after this one will be specific to the 2019 Rules changes. Stay tuned – and thanks for the time, Dave!
