Hooniverse will participate in the 2014 Optima Ultimate Street Car Challenge

Yes, you heard it right. Hooniverse is invited to participate in this years Optima Ultimate Street Car Challenge. While finishing up the 5 year restoration of my 1968 Eleanor GT500 the unfortunate thing with long custom restorations is you fail to meet deadlines and I am unable to use that car for the event. No matter, when all else fails use your daily driver. This upcoming weekend at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana California, the Hooniverse Camera Car, a 2014 Mountune MP275 Ford Focus ST, will be pummeled by compete on the track with some of the best performing modified street cars in the country. The Ultimate Street Car Association events are broken down into 5 segments; Design and Engineering, Road Rally, Autocross Time-Trial, Speed-Stop Time-Trial, and Road Course Time-Trial. Click past the jump to see a teaser filmed from the last event in Daytona and interviews with the drivers of past events.
