As the Optima Search for the Ultimate Street Car series and the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational (OUSCI) soar in popularity, Optima Batteries is expanding its grassroots event support with a new nationwide autocross series: DriveAutoX.
The inaugural season will feature a four-event series of autocross lifestyle events with an emphasis on driver skill, vehicle performance, and the social experience.
“The series is designed to support all participants’ passion to come drive with us in a fun, competitive event. With two days of autocross, drivers will get the chance to complete multiple runs on courses designed by the pros that run OUSCI,” says Cam Douglass, director of marketing, Optima Batteries, Johnson Controls. “DriveAutoX will also feature the same simple class designation and friendly rule set as our Search for the Ultimate Street Car series. With more slots to fill, we hope to welcome new enthusiasts to the sport.”
DriveAutoX caters to all years, makes, and models of vehicles with a variety of classes. And with no work requirements for participants, each two-day event is solely focused on friendly competition and fun. At the end of the weekend a champion will be named from each class.
