RideTech is burning the midnight oil as we gear up for our biggest SEMA ever. Our plate is full of an unprecedented number of significant new products in display, plus a full schedule of power meetings with the movers and shakers of automotive aftermarket dealers and distributors. Many extraordinary RideTech-equipped customs will grace the show floor. If you are attending, be on the lookout for one-off masterpieces by Rad Rides, Johnson’s Hot Rod Shop, Ironworks, Classic Car Studio, RMD Garage, Lakeside Rods & Rides, Ringbrothers and tons more. If you will not be attending SEMA, be sure to check the RideTech Facebook page as we will be posting and live-streaming often.
When the whistle blows at the end of SEMA week (Friday afternoon), the displaying manufacturers let out a resounding cheer, but some of us want more in the form of more cars, more speed parts and more action — more everything. While most people are packing up for the long drive home, or lining the street for the cruise, a small group of diehard enthusiasts is gearing up for two more days of excitement at the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational (OUSCI) sanctioned by the Ultimate Street Car Association (USCA).
If you prefer hot rods over pure race cars, this is the series for you. Real, honest-to-goodness street cars on real street tires live underneath the numerous sponsor decals and mandatory safety equipment. NASCAR, with its silhouette cars, has nothing on the USCA. Better yet, professional drivers are not allowed at OUSCI. The majority of the drivers are skilled, but all participate as an outlet to go fast in their hot rods without going to jail or putting themselves and the public at risk. Most come to play, while a few come to win.
If the USCA and the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational sounds like it spins your wheels, come to Vegas and buy a ticket for the show. As this is the 10th Anniversary of the OUSCI, you will be on hand to help celebrate. (maybe there’s a cake. We don’t know.) Though SEMA is a trade-only show, OUSCI is open to everyone. OUSCI takes place November 3-4 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Tickets are available HERE.
RideTech is proud to have a wide array of participants competing in the 2017 10th Annual OUSCI. We wish everyone involved a safe event and a great result. RideTech will post pictures of the cars on display at SEMA and from the event itself. Be sure to cheer for your favorite RideTech Ride.
