Dodge Challenger Drag Pak grassroots program

by David Zatz on

Following a first-year sell out of 100 factory-built program vehicles in 2009, Mopar announced its 2010 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak program. The non-street legal Dodge Challenger will be sold with the 6.1 liter HEMI® that may be set up with a 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission.

Based on the 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8® and finished in a Stock Eliminator configuration, Mopar engineers eliminated some components and systems to cut weight by around 1,000 pounds. The Dodge Challenger Drag Pak also features a composite lift-off hood with functional scoop, Dodge Viper-style front seats, polycarbonate door windows, a light-weight cooling module, manual rack-and-pinion steering, a cable-operated deck-lid release, light-weight front-brake assemblies, and cable-operated throttle linkage and pedal assembly.

The Dodge Challenger Drag Pak has a retro Stone White paint scheme and is sanctioned for NHRA Stock, Super Stock and Comp Eliminator drag racing. The retail price is $39,999; production begins this summer.

The 2009 and 2010 Drag Pack cars are not running when sold, and do not come with VIN identification.

Orders for the 2010 Challenger Drag Pak must be submitted using the Dodge Challenger Drag Pak Application which is available now at www.mopar.com or from the Mopar Direct Connection Tech Line at 888-528-HEMI (4363). Customers should work with their local Dodge dealer to submit their application.
