Mopar announces 2010 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak program

After the first-year sales of the 100 factory-produced program vehicles in 2009, Mopar is back again with the new 2010 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak program. New for 2010 is the availability of the 6.1L HEMI that can be mated with a 5-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual.

“We”re proud of our drag racing heritage at Mopar and we will continue to support our drag-race customers where they compete,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and Chief Executive Officer – Mopar Service, Parts and Customer Care, Chrysler Group LLC. “The Dodge Challenger Drag Pak program was a success last year, and we”ll be carrying that momentum into our 2010 build.”

Based on the 2010 Challenger SRT8 and finished in Stock Eliminator configuration, Mopar engineers took out select production components and systems to reduce weight by almost 1,000 pounds with the help of a composite lift-off hood with functional scoop, Dodge Viper-style front seats, polycarbonate door windows, a light-weight cooling module with electric fan, manual rack-and-pinion steering, a special cable-operated deck-lid release, special light-weight front-brake assemblies and special cable-operated throttle linkage and pedal assembly.

The Dodge Challenger Drag Pak is colored in Stone White and is certified for NHRA Stock, Super Stock and Comp Eliminator drag racing. MSRP starts at $39,999 with production to begin this summer.
