Dodge Challenger Demon Drag Racing Launch Simulator – Video
Dodge is inviting its enthusiasts and National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) race fans to participate in the “Drag Strip Showdown,” a head-to-head competition in Dodge Challenger SRT Demon simulators where the top four drivers with the best race times win trips to the Dodge//SRT Bondurant Drag Racing School.
The contest winners will be paired with either Mopar Dodge Top Fuel driver Leah Pritchett or Mopar Dodge Charger Funny Car driver Matt Hagan and be coached for the final competition taking place at Bondurant in the 840-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon – the industry’s first and only purpose-built, street-legal production drag car and the most powerful muscle car ever.
The “Drag Strip Showdown” begins Thursday, July 19 at the 39th annual Dodge Mile-High NHRA Nationals Powered by Mopar near Denver. The showdown runs through November 11 at Dodge-sponsored NHRA races throughout the country, as well as the August 11 Motor Trend Group’s “Roadkill Nights Powered by Dodge” popular street drag racing and car festival in Pontiac, Michigan, and the October 30-November 2 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) trade show in Las Vegas.
A leaderboard at each event instantly displays competitors’ time and rank after their run. The Dodge Garage digital content hub will also showcase the leaderboard, displaying the top competitors and promoting the competition.
Enthusiasts have another opportunity to attend the Dodge//SRT Bondurant Drag Racing School by entering the “Drag Strip Showdown” sweepstakes component of the promotion at Dodge Garage when the promotion begins July 19. Two additional winners will be randomly selected to receive gift certificates to the school at a date of their choosing.
