“Several years ago there was an explosion of events geared toward guys who wanted to run their cars hard rather than just endlessly rub on them with microfiber towels. The main problem for us West Coasters was that all these events seemed to be East Coast, or at best Midwest, affairs.

Since then, driving events have only gained in popularity to the point where Bill Howell, Yancy Johns, and Brian Finch have formed a new company called American Street Car Series. ASCS’ sole mission is to organize driving events around the country geared toward American muscle cars. So, how popular has this event become?

Maybe, but all we know is that it warms our collective hearts to see so much classic muscle getting used the way they were intended.”
