Putting street cars to task is what the annual Optima Ultimate Street Car. With a range of tests for drivers to complete and a diverse field of almost 100 invited cars vying for the coveted title. Corvettes are a favored marque for this series of performance events in various locations across the country. For example, in 2014, Danny Popp won the title in his purpose-built Z06 – a car that’s been autocrossed from brand new, and over the years developed into an uncompromised, street legal performer. For the 2014 challenge, his car featured a Lingenfelter 388ci destroked LS7 engine backed up by a Tremec gearbox, Van Steel suspension, Baer brakes, and Forgeline wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich rubber. This year Danny Popp again captured the title.
