2013 was the sixth year for the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational. I missed the first year, but have attended the last five events. The event is held on Saturday immediately following Sema at the beautiful Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Pahrump Nevada.
Optima holds event qualifiers across the United States during the year to qualify for the finals. The winners get an invite to the Sema show to display their cars all week in a special section just for the participants. Additionally, there are several cars picked out of the Sema show for the opportunity to compete in the finals that weekend.
