Several drivers had a dream come true recently as the Ultimate Street Car Association opened the gates at Daytona International Speedway. Muscle cars were in abundant supply as the event offered perfect Florida weather on Memorial Day weekend.
On Friday, the event kicked off with the Detroit Speed Road Rally that consisted of a beautiful coastline cruise.
After a mandatory driver’s meeting on Saturday, the attention turned to the course utilized during competition in the recent Rolex races. The road course provided challenges for the drivers who had to master speed at the expense of consistency. On this day, some additional chicanes provided the challenge of car control without the need for speed.
Other competition for the weekend put the brakes to the test in the Speed Stop competition. The design and engineering element of the weekend allowed owners to flaunt their ingenuity and style. The autocross portion tested the twists and turns even more on the tight course.
The Daytona event was one of 10 scheduled activities this year to give everyone a chance to drive at historic tracks and challenge themselves and their cars for fame and bragging rights.
