After two days of competition and challenges from past champions and newcomers alike, Danny Popp and his ’03 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 claimed the 2014 Ultimate Street Car Invitational victory. Popp also won the OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational in 2011, and his name will now be engraved on the traveling trophy for another year after a close win (less than one point) over Brandon Ranvek’s ’06 Mitsubishi Evo. Betim Berisha took third overall driving a ’11 Porsche 911TT.

A total of 103 vehicles ultimately competed in the event, held for the first time at Las Vegas Motor Speedway over the weekend of November 8–9. They faced a series of competitive driving events over the weekend, including the Wilwood Speed Stop Challenge and the Ridetech Street Challenge Autocross during the day on Saturday. Later that evening, competitors faced public roads on the Detroit Speed Road Rally Challenge, which ended with the Showtime Motorsports participant reception at the new Shelby American headquarters in Las Vegas.

The high-speed BFGoodrich Hot Lap Challenge took place on the 2.4-mile road course all day Sunday. The road-course action was paced by the Red Line Oil Camaro, which set a baseline lap time for all the competitors to challenge. Driven by experienced road-racing champion and OPTIMA PowerPro Brand Ambassador James Clay, the ’14 Roadster Shop Camaro was then put to work as a camera car, following the competitors as they ran the course and capturing the excitement for television. Each vehicle’s overall quality and craftsmanship was reviewed by the group of judges during the Lingenfelter Performance and Design Challenge, which required two days to complete.

When scores were finalized at the end of the last day, Popp had acquired more points than any other competitor. While Popp was named the overall winner, the individual event winners included:

Wilwood Speed Stop Challenge

First Place: ’06 Mitsubishi Evo RS (Brandon Ranvek) 
Second Place: ’11 Porsche 911TT (Betim Berisha) 
Third Place: ’12 Porsche 911 Turbo S (Larry Woo)

The 2014 OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational was presented by K&N Filters.

 1931 CHRYSLER CG IMPERIAL

LeBARON CONVERTIBLE COUPE

This 1931 Imperial LeBaron Custom Line convertible coupe is one of just ten of its kind built; exquisitely restored to concours condition. With a massive 145-inch wheelbase chassis, the gorgeous LeBaron styling brilliantly captures the essence of Chrysler’s vision for the long, low, and sleek Imperial. This example is being offered out of an extensive collection of classic era automobiles, and benefitting from to a nut-and-bolt, concours quality restoration completed in 2008. It presents in gorgeous maroon with subtle red coach lines, with chrome wire wheels and wide whitewalls enhancing the sporting essence of the body. The bold, deep-vee radiator with horizontal chrome slats is topped with the evocative Gazelle mascot. Other accessories include dual sidemount spare wheels with chrome mirrors, and a body-color trunk fitted to a factory trunk rack. The presentation is exquisite, with outstanding paint and impeccable brightwork and detailing.

 

Beautiful light tan leather covers the front seat, interior panels, and rumble seat. It is restored with the same fastidious quality as the rest of the car, using the finest materials. As a step up from the roadster, the Convertible Coupe offered better weather protection via its more substantive top and roll-up side windows. However, it shared much of the roadster’s sporting appeal with the painted metal dash and simple, clear instrument layout. This crisp and inviting interior has mellowed only slightly from use, and it remains in lovely condition.
