pbskids returns to our local road course this July to figure out which enthusiast—and tuner-built show cars can put down the fastest lap at Streets of Willow Springs in Southern California!

The 5th annual Show Car Shootout sponsored by ENEOS Motor Oil is open to any coupe, sedan, or wagon that normally would be found at a car show. Competition consists of showing your vehicle at this year's SPOCOM Anaheim car show, in addition to a time attack challenge at Streets of Willow. The event is open to naturally aspirated and forced induction vehicles sourced from submitted entries, with a preference toward enthusiast-built vehicles. For the third year in a row, we have enlisted the help of two professional drivers to help instruct and guide this year's class of Show Car Shootout competitors—Formula DRIFT champion Dai Yoshihara and Global RallyCross Championship star Steve Arpin. Show Car Shootout is intended to give aspiring track drivers an opportunity to get out on the road course, improve their driving skills and push the limits of their cars with the guidance of our celebrity drivers. Professional and experienced drivers are not allowed.

Let us be very clear: NO FULLY PREPPED RACE CARS—street-able show cars only!

The time attack is set for Streets of Willow Springs in Rosamond, Calif. on July 22nd. New to the competition this year, a spot will be reserved for all accepted Show Car Shootout entries at the SPOCOM Anaheim 2019 lifestyle event on July 20th. SCS competitors will be special guests of ENEOS USA at the Anaheim Convention Center and will be parked in a special coral at SPOCOM—door cards ready for the circuit—in what promises to be a unique photo op!
