FALKEN TIRES SPONSORS OPTIMA BATTERIES SEARCH FOR THE ULTIMATE STREET CAR SERIES FOR 2017
Falken Brings Road Course events to Racetracks Across the Country
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA – The popularity of the Optima Batteries Search for the Ultimate Street Car Series continues to grow in 2017, and Falken Tires has teamed up again with the Ultimate Street Car Association to sponsor its series of events for enthusiasts and their high performance street cars at famous racetracks across the country. Six different classes—GT, GT Sports Car, GT Vintage, GT Compact, GT Electric, and GT Lights—offer spots for various types of street-driven autos that owners can enter. The Optima Ultimate Street Car Series combines autocross, design & engineering, road course, and speed stop to test the owners’/drivers’ variety of automotive skills. This year’s eight event locations across the country can be found at http://driveusca.com.
“This is Falken Tires’ third year in a row sponsoring the Optima Batteries Search for the Ultimate Street Car Series because it’s a great way to help enthusiasts improve their skills and to show how well our new RT615K+ and FK510 tires work in high performance driving situations,” stated Jonathon Bradford, Manager, Motorsports & Events.
These events were created to give automotive enthusiasts of all skill levels a chance to use their real street cars for competition and are sanctioned by the USCA (Ultimate Street Car Association) to ensure a fun and safe time for members, participants, volunteers, and spectators. Each Sunday of the Street Car Challenges, a Falken-specific Falken Tires Road Course event is run on one of the celebrated racetracks that are chosen by the USCA for this series. Falken Tires offers a contingency to entrants who use Falken AZENIS RT615K+ on their competing vehicles. On top of that, the new AZENIS FK510 has become the spec tire for the GT Electric class of the Ultimate Street Car Challenge.
