Kyle and the DSE 1970 Camaro Capture the GTV Class, the GTV Class Championship and the Overall 2015 Optima National Championship

Mooresville, NC – The final regular season event of the Optima Batteries “Search for the Ultimate Street Car” turned out to be a pretty special one for Kyle Tucker, Detroit Speed and Detroit Speed “Equipped” vehicles. Kyle, driving his trusty DSE 1970 Camaro, won the GTV class with 2nd place finishes in the Hot Lap Challenge and Autocross and followed that up with a 1st place in the Speed Stop. The win not only gave Kyle the GTV class but also the 2015 GTV class championship along with the USCA Optima National Championship for the year. That is some good momentum leading up to the end of the year Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational that takes place at Las Vegas Motor Speedway November 7th-8th.

Kyle and his 1970 weren’t the only ones having fun over the weekend. Some DSE “Equipped” vehicles made a whole bunch of noise over in the GT class led by Bryan Johnson. Bryan captured 1st in the GT class by winning the Speed Stop and finishing in 2nd place in the Autocross and Hot Lap Challenge. With that class win Bryan captured the GT class championship for the year giving Detroit Speed “Equipped” vehicles two class championships for the year. Following Bryan up were Cody Mason and Jordan Priestley. Jordan and Cody both have DSE “Equipped” 5th Gen Camaros and drove excellent the entire weekend.

Some other DSE “Equipped” vehicles and drivers made a name for themselves this past weekend including Jake Rozelle who won the GTV Hot Lap in his DSE “Equipped” 1969 Camaro and finished 3rd overall in the GTV class. Congratulations to everyone else who came out and ran hard. It was great seeing all of the DSE “Equipped” vehicles in the garage area and on the track.

Next up for the Detroit Speed team is the final Optima event of the year, the one everybody is looking forward to. The Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational that will be held at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Kyle is in with his DSE 1970 Camaro while DSE Engineer, Ryan Mathews, qualified with the Detroit Speed 2012 White Monster Camaro. Best of luck to everyone involved!
