OPTIMA USCA at Las Vegas Motor SpeedwayPosted By: JDP Team - On: 3/28/2018 8:00 AM
OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Association Round I 2018 | Las Vegas, NV
Looking at the results from the OPTIMA Batteries Ultimate Street Car Association Event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, it really reflects the long hours that the JDP team puts in. Jordan, John, Chris and Eric took their JDP powered vehicles to the limits all weekend long and we couldn't be more proud!
JDP Driver Jordan Priestley battled it out with a very strong GTS field and ended up finishing 2nd in GTS and 4th Overall for the weekend. Considering the caliber of the other ninety or so cars that were in Vegas for this event, we're honored to be at the table. (Even though Jordan still hates that he lost).
2014 Camaro ZL1 *ZL-1000 driven by John D Grow
Diabla had a complete transformation during the off season this year. John came in with a substantially lighter car that he had very little time to test. Despite that, John drove to a strong 4th place finish in GT and 28th Overall which included the 2nd highest D&E score given to a GT car. We're all proud of your progress as a driver, John. They'd better watch our for you!
2007 Corvette Z06 driven by Chris Hart
Chris got this car back the night before the event by way of LurchCamaro Hart towing it down for him from here at JDP. Chris got to find out how to drive the car all over again and still managed a 5th place GTL finish and a 20th Overall score! There were a lot of great cars and great drivers that were looking up at Chris on the leaderboard. Nice work, Chris!
2018 Camaro ZL1/1LE ZL-850 driven by Eric Sheely
Eric had a HUGE performace in the Hot Laps, besting the next GT car by over 2 full seconds. His steady performance earned him a 1st Place finish in GT and 8th place overall for the weekend. Mostly importantly, Eric also received his invite to the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational!! We appreciate the support, Team Sheely!
Last but not least Congratulations to Austin Barnes for not only winning GTS Class but for taking 1st place Overall for the weekend as well! That Viper was hooked up and Austin was on a mission!
We are very fortunate to call all of the Ultimate Street Car Association and its participants, friends and family. These weekends are tons of fun. However, they are equally as taxing on the teams, the cars, the drivers and also their families. Thank You to all who were a part of such a big weekend for JDP Motorsports, including our awesome partners! This is a great start to the USCA 2018 Season, and we're very pleased with the performance of the JDP C7 Bernice. We are registered for this year's OPTIMA events at Pikes Peak, Auto Club Speedway, and Road America. Stay tuned!
