You might think it is 1968 all over again. In one corner Dodge has unveiled a veninous new super stock Dodge Challenger Drag Pak; in the other corner is Ford with the Ford Mustang FR500 Cobra Jet package. Just like the factory super stock wars of years gone by once again some of the Big 3 are back in business. Will these new super cars live up to their precessors?

Dodge Challenger Drag Pak

The Dodge Challenger Drag Pak is a 100% pure bread race car. It can never be licensed or driven on the street (legally). The vehicle features many changes from the production line including:

The cars are designed to run in nearly 40 NHRA/IHRA classes including Super Stock, Stock Eliminator, Competition Eliminator, and of course numerous bracket classes. Purchasing a Drag Pak Challenger implies you enter into contract with Chrysler on the branding of the vehicle. For more details check out their web site 2009 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak.
