Dodge Demon Owners Go to Drag Racing School

New drag racing course features 840-hp Challenger SRT® Demon

Where can you drive a Dodge Challenger SRT® Demon without having to buy one?

 

 

 

Dodge//SRT and the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving are offering a new performance-packed one-day drag racing class, featuring the 840-horsepower 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon – the most powerful muscle car ever.

The new “Dodge//SRT Bondurant Drag Racing School” complements Bondurant’s already successful “Official High Performance Driving School of Dodge//SRT” class provided to all customers who buy an SRT model vehicle and includes both classroom instruction and on-track performance driving. 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon owners have the opportunity to participate in either one of these full-day classes at no additional charge. 

 

“With great power comes responsibility, so we want our enthusiasts to respect the full capability of their machines,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT®, FCA – North America.

 

In addition to the Challenger SRT Demon, the new drag racing course will also feature other Dodge high-performance vehicles, including the 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Hellcat Widebody, and the 485-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT 392.  

Pre-registration for the “Dodge//SRT Bondurant Drag Racing School” began January 12, with the first class starting March 9. Demon and SRT owners register for the class through the Dodge//SRT concierge line, 800-998-1110, as their vehicle identification numbers will be verified. All others register at Bondurant.com/dragracing.

Owners of other Dodge//SRT vehicles, who already receive a full-day high performance driving class, can upgrade their training to two full days (one-day road course, one-day drag strip) for $999. Non-Dodge vehicle owners can also take the drag racing class for $1,999 to learn the art of drag racing and experience the Challenger SRT Demon, SRT Hellcat, Hellcat Widebody and SRT 392.

The “Dodge//SRT Bondurant Drag Racing School” will be held at Bondurant’s world-class facility and the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park, an official NHRA drag strip, which sit on approximately 200 acres in Chandler, Arizona. The new program is a part of Bondurant’s Golden 50th Anniversary in 2018 and is a collaboration with Dodge, Goodyear, Shell and Pennzoil.

 

The new Dodge//SRT Bondurant Drag Racing School introduces fundamental drag racing skills and knowledge from burnouts and staging to reaction time and elapsed time.
