    DSC_0693.JPGWhen Dodge announced that they would offer 100 heavily modified 2009
    Dodge Challengers with the Drag Pak option for the NHRA Stock, Super
    Stock and Comp Eliminator classes, racers lineup up to grab one of
    these factory built race cars. This morning, Dodge announced that the
    success of the 2009 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak models has lead them to
    offer the similar package for 2010.

    The 2010 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak begins with a Challenger SRT8 with
    the 6.1L Hemi mated to a 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual
    transmission. Then, about 1000 pounds of fat is trimmed away as things
    like Viper-style front seats, Lexan side windows, a lightweight cooling
    system, a manual steering assembly, lightweight front braking
    components, an ultra-light lift off hood and a cable-operated throttle
    linkage/ pedal assembly (no “drive by wire”) are added in place of the
    standard items.


    Similarly to what we saw in 2009, the 2010 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak
    cars will be offered in Stone White and like the first Drag Pak
    Challengers, these cars do not come with a Vehicle Identification
    Number (VIN#) so they are not legal for street use. According to
    Chrysler, the 2010 Drag Pak program will have a base price of just
    $39,999 and applications for the 2010 Challenger Drag Pak are
    available at Mopar.com.
    These vehicles sold out quickly in 2009 and although Dodge hasn’t
    stated how many will be produced for 2010, get those orders in right
    away to get the best chance of owning one of these rare
    factory-production race cars.
