After Ford unveiled the Mustang NASCAR Nationwide Series race car yesterday, Dodge wasn’t just about to sit back and let them take all of the attention. Bring forth the Dodge Challenger set to take on the same competition.
The new Dodge Challenger NASCAR Nationwide Series race car will be presented this weekend at a series of concerts that Dodge is hosting. The official presentation will end with interactive displays at the Daytona International Speedway.
“Our new Dodge Challenger race car brings true brand identity back to NASCAR, so now the spotlight is going to be shared between the new car and our two star drivers from Penske Racing,” said Dodge Brand President Ralph Gilles. “We’ve been looking forward to this race weekend for quite some time, and our loyal owners and fans are going to have a lot of opportunities to celebrate the return of the Dodge Challenger.”
Ford announced that any driver who wins the Subway Jalapeno 250 in a Mustang this Friday will receive their own 2011 5.0-liter Mustang GT production vehicle. So, how about Dodge? The company has said nothing about the drivers receiving a vehicle, but they are giving the fans an opportunity to win a new Challenger R/T. Sounds alright to us!
So, place your bets everyone and stay tuned this Friday to find out who the top dog muscle car is!
