Dodge Brand Identity Returns in NASCAR with 2013 Dodge ChargerDodge Charger Race Car For 2013 Sprint Cup Series Únveiled At LVMS
LAS VEGAS (Sunday, March 11, 2012) – Fans asked for it. NASCAR agreed. SRT Motorsports and Dodge delivered. SRT Motorsports unveiled the 2013 Dodge Charger that will compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series next season at Las Vegas Motor Speedway today in front of the people that asked for the change -- the fans. Just as they did wîth the Dodge Challenger when it was introduced in the NASCAR Nationwide Series two years ago, SRT Motorsports designers and engineers created a race car fans will have no problem identifying on the race track. The defining features of the street Charger have been expertly incorporated into the racing version.
'From the start, it's been a collaborative effort wîth NASCAR,' said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO – SRT Brand and Motorsports. 'NASCAR provided the manufacturers wîth basic specifications, but offered encouragement to venture beyond the look of the current race car. Our design and engineering group, working wîth Penske Racing, seized the opportunity. We had a fantastic benchmark – the Dodge Challenger – introduced in 2009. This endeavor goes beyond the trend the Nationwide Series Challenger started wîth a Dodge Charger that amazingly embodies many of the design features of the street version into the race car. We're extremely proud that the Dodge Charger street car is the only rear-wheel-drive model in Sprint Cup competition that is available wîth a V-8 engine.'
NASCAR eased rules on where manufacturers could put glass and solid body pieces. That freed designers and engineers to make the 'greenhouse,' the area above the doors, hood and truck lid, more closely resemble production cars. Rules were also eased for the front and rear, and especially the sides, allowing the character lines that come directly from the street car.
'We know NASCAR fans are passionate about cars,' said NASCAR President Mike Helton. 'We're excited about the results of the collective efforts of NASCAR, Dodge and the other manufacturers to create the 2013 Sprint Cup cars. The 2013 Dodge Charger race car design is a great example of what we look forward to seeing on the race track next season. We thank Dodge and all the manufacturers for their efforts, as we see the results here today wîth the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Dodge Charger.'
'The race fans delivered a clear message,' said Gilles. 'NASCAR listened. We went to work, following the guidelines established for all manufacturers by NASCAR. The Dodge Charger revealed today validates our resolve to deliver a product that will be easily identifiable on the track without compromise in the area of competition.'Source - Dodge
