The Dodge Viper just saw it end as the last one rolled off the production line earlier this month, but that doesn’t mean the sports car isn’t going to go out in a bang. This bang will come in the form of a special Cup Series that will start tomorrow at Virginia International Raceway (VIR) in Alton, Va. and will continue through the entire summer. The series will finally end on October 24 when the race will finish at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch, in Pahrump, NV.
At this weekend’s race there will be 12 Dodge Viper ACR-X race cars that are signed up and ready to race. The winner of this competition will receive a prize of $7,500.
"The Dodge Viper ACR-X is designed and built specifically for the race track," said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO, Dodge Brand. "Now with VERSUS on board, race fans will have the opportunity to see our untamed and unmatched road-racing machine along with some of our talented Viper owner/drivers compete on five of the best road courses in the county as part of the Dodge Viper Cup series."
