Ever wonder what a Dodge Challenger would look like dressed up in NASCAR garb? Your questions have been answered.
Dodge, along with partner Penske Racing, unveiled its new Challenger stock car, designed for the NASCAR Nationwide Series. Both of Penske’s Nationwide drivers — Justin Allgaier and Brad Keselowski — are slated to pilot Challengers in the 2010 series.
Chrysler’s release is otherwise limited on details — appropriate, considering the Challenger will only compete in a limited series. NASCAR will allow the Challenger (along with Ford’s new Mustang Nationwide car) to compete in four “New Car” races across the season. For the other 31 races, both Allgaier and Keselowski will pilot their usual Charger-inspired stock cars.
The first “New Car” race will be held at Daytona in July 2010, but Allgaier is expected to take his Challenger out for testing at Talladega later this afternoon.
