Registration is now open for the Optima Faceoff at at Road America!
This event is part of nine total qualifiers where automotive enthusiasts compete to earn a chance to participate in the world-famous Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational that takes place annually in Nevada immediately following the SEMA Show and is televised on SPEED.
The Optima Faceoff at Road America is scheduled for June 22-24, 2012 in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. More than 50 participants are expected to attend and each entry will receive two free tickets to the NASCAR Nationwide Series/GRAND-AM Rolex Series taking place at Road America the same weekend on Saturday, June 23.
Optima will also be selecting 15 vehicles to participate in the 2012 Sandhills Open Road Challenge August 8-12, 2012, in Arnold, Nebraska, which includes a 55-mile open road race and a one-mile shootout. Optima is paying the entry fee for these 15 entrants, but they can't pick you if they don't see you at the Faceoff and Road America is a great place to be seen.
The “Spirit of the Event” winners from these Faceoff events will join previous Run to the Alamo qualifiers Greg Davidson (2010 Chevrolet Camaro) and Karl Dunn (2007 Ford Mustang), and Run to the Coast qualifier Dale Akuszewski (1964 Sunbeam Tiger) in their quest to be named the OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car at the fifth annual OPTIMA Invitational, Saturday, November 3, 2012.
