2014 Ridler award winner OPTIMA® Batteries invited 91 competitors to the seventh annual OPTIMA® Ultimate Street Car Invitational. The largest-ever field of racers took the track at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) following the SEMA show.

Some of the following drivers were invited based on their performance over several events that took place during the 2014 Ultimate Street Car Association (USCA) season at iconic tracks across the country. The majority in this group of invitees are special cars that have been identified throughout the year by industry insiders and/or OPTIMA Batteries. Included among this eclectic group are 2014 Ridler award winner J.F. Launier and his 1964 Buick Riviera, past OUSCI competitor Zeke Peterson’s 1,000 horsepower Volkswagen GTI, and two-time Ultimate Street Car Invitational winner Mark Stielow, who will be debuting his new 1969 Camaro, named “Hellfire”. Each of these dedicated and talented drivers have accepted invitations to participate in the season-ending championship event in Las Vegas:
