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!

NOLA Recap and Results!
In this episode of the show we started out with a tribute to our dear friend and OSUSC competitor, Todd Rumpke. Todd was a friend to everyone in the series and touched an almost uncountable number of souls. He will be deeply missed.
We also ran through the entire inaugural event from NOLA and dug into explaining how “The Final 15” works. Long story short, there are only a few slots left for the 2016 OUSCI Invite list and it will all be determined after the final event of the season. Figuring out who is in – and who is not – is going to be like watching election night results!
Thanks for listening,
-Rob & Jimi
