Welcome to the Show!
Welcome to the Optima Search For the Ultimate Street Car Series Podcast! This show is produced twice-per-month show and will be a great way to keep people informed on everything going on, from rules discussions, to event coverage, and to feature interviews with competitors and people of interest!
The show is hosted by myself (Rob Kibbe) and Race Director Jimi Day. Our goal is to bring you all of the latest and greatest information possible…plus have plenty of fun along with way. Feel free to e-mail us with feedback and questions, and we’ll work as many of them can into the show!
We are incredibly proud to announce that Forgeline Motorsports has also returned to the OSUSC Podcast show for 2022! Forgeline has been a staple among OSUSC competitors, and their incredible wheels are as well engineered (and race tested) as they are beautiful.
Stay tuned to future shows to hear more from Forgline, and be sure to visit their website and give them a call for all of your competition wheel needs!
45% of the 2021 OUSCI field ran Forgelines – including the top 3 finishers!

While we’re in between events we wanted to present as many feature interviews as possible for you this season, and this time we’re proud to have Josh Stahl from Reviva on the show. Josh is an easy guy to spot at events; he’s 6’5″, built like a Tight End, and drives a bright red Wide-Body 69 ‘Benz with a cage and a built LS under the hood. The engine itself was a designed to be a new feature line for his company, as they just happen to be a major engine remanufacturer for multiple domains of engine lines. Why not use that expertise to create a robust and high performance LS series engine, right?
The Benz is a crowd and competitro favorite to be sure. He’s won multiple Anderson Composites Participants Choice awards, in fact! Josh really enjoys the OPTIMA series and everything that goes along with it. Just like his car, he’s a work in progress as a driver and he’s loving every minute of them both getting better together. Due to the build nature of the car he runs in the Outlaw class….but he would sure love to know how his car would do in Design and Engineering if it qualified for GTV.
