DSE “Equipped” Cars Dominate at Optima’s “Search for the Ultimate Street Car” at Z-Max Dragway and Charlotte Motor Speedway
Mooresville, NC – It was a bit of a special weekend for Detroit Speed. For the first time in a while the hauler wasn’t zipping across the country for an event. The event was in our own backyard at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Optima and their “Search for the Ultimate Street Car” series invaded Charlotte, NC and it couldn’t have gone better for Detroit Speed and Detroit Speed equipped cars. Kyle Tucker and the Detroit Speed 1970 Camaro Test Car came away with first overall in the GTV class while Bryan Johnson, driving his DSE “Equipped” 2013 5th Gen Camaro, took home top honors in the GT class. DSE was also represented by Ryan Mathews in the 5th Gen Camaro Test Car while Stacy Tucker wheeled the DSE 2008 FR500S Mustang during the events.

The event started bright and early Saturday morning about 30 minutes south of the Detroit Speed shop at the Z-Max Dragway parking lot for autocross and speed stop action. DSE Engineer, Ryan Mathews, laid down fantastic times in the DSE 5th Gen Camaro Test Car and came away with the fastest autocross time of the entire event. Not to be outdone, Kyle followed that up with the 2nd fastest autocross time of the event in the DSE 1970 Camaro Test Car. The Speed Stop was a bit different than usual, with it being held on the drag strip at Z-Max.
Following a full day of racing the road rally took off from Z-Max and ended with the Holley Welcome Party at Detroit Speed. There was music, food, prizes and much more with the shops open for all competitors to enjoy including some homemade ice cream for dessert.
Sunday was all about the road course at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The infield road course had all new asphalt and a new configuration with 60 feet of elevation change over the length of the course. Bryan Johnson and his 2013 DSE “Equipped” Camaro came away with the fastest time of the weekend on the road course en route to winning the GT class while Ryan Mathews had the 2nd fastest time of the event in the DSE 5th Gen Camaro Test Car. DSE customer Craig Hardee was also out and was a first timer to USCA driving his DSE “Equipped” Z/28. Based on Bryan’s performance in a Detroit Speed “Equipped” 5th Gen Camaro, Detroit Speed is offering 16% off of 5th Gen Camaro products throughout the rest of the week and will end Friday, July 31st at 5:00 PM.
The crew now has a bit of time off at the shop with the next event being the Optima “Search for the Ultimate Street Car” at Road America August 29th – 30th at Elkhart Lake, WI.
