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!

NOLA Recap and OUSCI 2019 Preview!


This is it! The entire season has now wrapped, our National Champions have been announced, the SEMA show is next week, and OUSCI 2019 is just days away.

Listen in for a recap of the final event of the season at NOLA as well as a full OUSCI preview that all participants should really listen to to supplement all information received to date. The entire week of SEMA does have activities for OUSCI participants, beginning the night before the show itself starts.

Also – if you’ll have a car at the show and you still want a shot at OUSCI….there’s still time to campaign your car for consideration of the Golden Ticket award! Details given in the show as well.

Thanks for listening all season long. We’ll be back after OUSCI for a full recap on Show #100!
