Default Arm Chair Racers: Could Miata Field A Optmia Street Car Challange Car?

So, I've been watching the Optima Street Car Challenge Series. What would it take to make a competitive challenge for this event?

An American car that wouldn't be thrown out like the Jap cars are?

I don't know. the GTL category is for the light weight cars. There is a Lotus doing well.

Optima wants Pro-Touring cars (old American muscle on custom frames and suspensions). They skew in that direction.

Andy Hollis ran at least one event last year in his k24 powered Miata...I'd ask him.

It kinda seems that way. RS Motorsports running Evo's are pushing against the skew.
Maybe a LS powered Miata.
