Welcome to the Show!
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!
We are incredibly proud to announce that Forgeline Motorsports has also returned to the OSUSC Podcast show for 2018! Forgeline has been a staple among OSUSC competitors, and their incredible wheels are as well engineered (and race tested) as they are beautiful.
Stay tuned to future shows to hear more from Forgline, and be sure to visit their website and give them a call for all of your competition wheel needs!

Fontana Recap with OPTIMA Jim…and Class Standings with One Event to Go!
OPTIMA Jim and I returned to the OSUSC Studio this week to recap Fontana, share who won, and discuss who is gunning for class championships at the final event of Road America. Long story short, there are more fun fireworks flying in competitors garages right now than a 4th of July Celebration on Capital Hill!
Full results for Fontana are below. Thanks for listening!
