If you've ever wanted a shot at getting on TV, but thought you didn't have the right kind of car, this is your chance. This is an event for street-legal cars- the kind people drive every day. It doesn't matter if you're fast or slow, experienced or new to tracking your car.
Because all of these events are qualifiers for the 2014 OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational, many of the top competitors will be receiving a free invitation to the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. As you thumb through the pages of your favorite magazines & see page after page of beautiful cars, some of them adorned with sponsor logos & you wonder how a company decides who to sponsor, one of the most-obvious answers is exposure.
When you participate in Ultimate Street Car Association events, it offers you the unique opportunity to go to a potential sponsor & offer them real TV exposure on MAVTV, a national TV network known for it's motorsports programming. To many sponsors, there is a world of difference between someone who plans on running a full local race series with no TV or magazine coverage & someone who plans on running even a single nationally-televised event.
The format of these events focuses on safety for both driver & car. The USCA wants to make sure everyone who drives to the event is able to drive home. Unlike drag racing, where you have to run side by side with another competitor, the USCA can put you in a group that allows you to go out onto the track by yourself, so you don't have to worry about trading paint with another car, whether it is accidental or not.
Space is limited. These are iconic tracks & it is being broadcast on national TV, which can create high demand for both track & TV time. The USCA wants to maximize the opportunities for everyone in these events, so they will cap the fields. However, space remains in all events for now. There's no telling how long it will last. Don't take a chance. Sign up to run in a USCA event at your favorite tracks today!
