The 2018 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 a time attack, and the event is open to naturally aspirated and forced induction vehicles sourced from submitted entries, with a preference toward enthusiast- and tuner-built vehicles.
