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!

AMP Winners and Recap!

AMP has come and gone! Listen in for a full run down of the event, award winners, and segment winners. Congrats to all! This is a “double edition” show and has a ton of series news for you as well to enjoy on a long Independence Day weekend.

Programming note: Rob & Jimi had a bet about the percentage of the field that would have run on Forgelines. Rob lost. He was to drink a beer out of a shoe. In the spirit of complying with the rulebook, Rob honored that bet….and then wrote about himself in the third person in this podcast. Proof below.
