NASCAR Removed Dodge’s Fastest Car Once Half A Century Ago

Thursday, November 18th, 2021

History reminds us sometimes when humans are too successful; one such example is the Dodge Daytona that was once banned by NASCAR for simply being too fast. Now, in the 1960’s NASCAR and racing was widely popular and successful, so how could a vehicle that was just as remarkable face any restrictions? The Dodge Daytona car hit speeds over 200 mph and was no longer allowed to compete in NASCAR event racing. This was first done by legendary NASCAR driver Buddy Baker who was the one to go over 200 miles per hour on March 24, 1970, at the famed Talladega racing track. After that, the Dodge Daytona proceeded to win six more races. After this success, NASCAR officials were left with no choice but alter the rules to ban cars with certain attributes, like the huge wing these Dodge vehicles held. New aero rules were put in place by 1971, but vehicles like the 1969 Dodge Daytona were able to seriously earn some speedy races before winning and taking out all the competition.

Dodge Removed From NASCAR After Success

With the rear stabilizer wing, fender-mounted cooling scoops for braking, and a sheet metal cowl over the front grille, this was a vehicle built for game-changing speed. Keep in mind, the 1969 Dodge Daytona did that with style as the rules changed to prohibit this vehicle from hitting the race track. Dodge and Plymouth were the two brands that were told they could not use their vehicles to race competitively. The Superbird from Plymouth was the other aero-vehicle that was completely banned at all NASCAR events. They were simply ahead of their time, but now Dodge has found a path to get customers interested in reliving their winning ways with faster than ever vehicles and a modern touch tossed in as well to boot. Don’t forget, Dodge loves their special edition throwbacks built on their modern platform

Looking Back At the 1969 Dodge Daytona and Most Recent Daytona Offering

Readers should note, the 1969 Dodge Daytona was one of only 500 vehicles produced and can find prices that cost over $150,000 MSRP now. Dodge paid homage to the iconic Daytona racing cars of that era with an available special-edition 2020 Dodge Charger Daytona widebody muscle car with the newest platform getting a unique Daytona appearance. This new Dodge Charger package arrived with a price tag over $110,000 MSRP, but for those looking for them, they were quite a rare discovery. Just as unique as the 1969 Daytona is to find today. The folks at Mecum Auctions and businesses like theirs are where drivers look to find these restored classics, but for those that want to own the most aggressive and new Dodge vehicles, rush to Miami Lakes Automall today to get the process started.

Good news for Dodge muscle car fans that feel like the 2021 Dodge Charger was left out of some of the perks the Challenger received. The 2021 Charger is set to receive a new paint color previously and exclusively available for the 50th Anniversary Edition Dodge Challenger. Since its debut in June 2020, but the best part is now the bold look can be had with every 2021 Charger. That’s right; the Dodge Challenger will grant its body color to the Charger for every trim for its 2021 model year. 

Enjoy the Gold Rush Color 

The four-door 2021 Dodge Charger will offer the Gold Rush color for each trim including the Charger R/T, Scat Pack, Scat Pack Widebody, SRT Hellcat, and Hellcat Redeye are all golden options. The Gold Rush color across includes its Satin Black hand-painted roof, hood, and decklid. While the Challenger received the spotlight last year, Dodge knew the brand had to offer the same treatment to its Charger and extend the favor over to fans. Now readers can encounter a wide variety of colors that includes Frostbite, Hellraisin, Go Mango, Sinamon Stick, TorRed, and F8 Green. Dodge has noted the beloved Gold Rush become a staple amount Dodge Challenger fans and wanted to offer this color in the mix among these exceptional options.

“The customer response to the Dodge Challenger Gold Rush exceeded our expectations. We’re sticking to that successful Dodge formula of proliferating our most popular options across the lineup and giving Charger customers, who want the Gold Rush color, the option to have it on their four-door muscle car,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge Brand Chief Executive Officer – Stellantis.

A Quick Rebound For the Muscle Sedan

The Dodge Charger enjoyed a wonderful sales year, notwithstanding the pandemic. Keep in mind, the total vehicles moved in January and February 2021 exceeded the total from the same time in 2020 and 2019. The rush at the end of the year was impressive as well as the Charger was sold 9,174 times in merely December 2020 alone. That total was higher than any year dating back to 2014 for the popular Dodge muscle car. Dodge has not yet released the quarterly report for the start of 2021, but if there’s any evidence of what to anticipate with the addition of stimulus money being added into many customers bank accounts, plus the incentives to take home a new vehicle, the Dodge brand might be gaining lots of attention paid to its popular muscle sedan.

Few movies ever become successful enough to come up with a sequel, but one can’t recall any other series to spawn over nine-films plus a spin-off film except for Star Wars. This is the case with the Fast and the Furious movie franchise. Now Lego has produced a 1:13 scale replica of the famed 1970 Dodge Charger R/T from the series. This is the muscle car owned by the main character in the first half of the Fast and Furious series, Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto. The sleek, polished black 1970 Dodge Charger R/T is the latest Lego Technic kit to join the new Lego “Technic” line. The vehicle is a memorable cast-member in some respects to the Fast and the Furious film. A memorable ’70 Charger R/T from the first film of the long-running franchise. 

Relevance of the Dodge Charger

The black muscle car that went head-to-head with an orange Toyota Supra, the 1970 Charger R/T, stands out for many reasons. Remember, the 2020 Dodge Charger is still available in its current form. As owners of any muscle car can tell you, owning one is one of the most memorable and happiest feelings a driver can experience. The popularity of the Fast and the Furious franchise is not stuck on just a single vehicle, but no other vehicle stands out as a way of bringing to mind the origin of the “Fast” story. Drag racing and seeing who could win, whether by an inch or a mile, winning is winning” as Toretto famously said. We know all about winning with the fresh, new line-up of Dodge Charger and Challenger muscle cars waiting for our customers.

Breaking Down the Lego Technic 1970 Charger

Fans of Lego Technic and Fast and the Furious are sure to love this replica. It’s a 1:13 scale, 1,077-piece kit that includes a replica V8 engine with actually moving pistons. The kit also provides a wheelie bar and the well-known NOS tanks that are placed in the trunk. Even more hilarious is the toy fire extinguisher is kept inside of the cabin. This replica is fun to build and show off. After being assembled, the product is an accurate depiction of the old-school Charger. 

Even though the Dodge Charger vehicles of the 1970s were very popular, the Dodge brand is enjoying its greatest run currently with surging success. Lego Technic choose the right vehicle at the right time and did a solid job of bringing out the Charger design. In regards to the Dodge Lego Technic, the final product looks fantastic. The details can be spotted even all over including the iconic headlights and taillights. Any person who loves the Fast and Furious franchise will appreciate this new Lego product. 

Fast and the Furious Charger Still Popular

The Fast and the Furious franchise is still gaining fans. Fans of the film, especially those with young kids, definitely would love recreating the old-school Charger R/T provided with this Lego kit that has begun taking offers and is expected to start its sale date on April 27, 2020. The next Fast and the Furious is set for a pushed back release date, however. The next movie, Fast and Furious 9, saw its original date of May 22, 2020 pushed back to next year.

Is Dodge Adding A Hellcat RedeyeTrim To Charger?

Friday, March 27th, 2020

Dodge and parent company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) have allowed the Dodge Charger to catch up to its sedan cousin, the Challenger, with its own Hellcat Widebody trim finally being offered last year. This came two years after its official debut for the Challenger. Now Dodge will be doing the same for its fastest production vehicle in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, but this time it will be added to the Charger lineup. New spy shots have shown Dodge has gone to great lengths to cover up it’s newest muscle car. What do the latest photos tell us? Let’s get into the reasonable takes as to why Dodge is taking its time to debut the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye.

Dodge Keeping the Redeye Charger Secret

Reports have surfaced that Dodge would only make the Charger SRT hellcat redeye if they could contain the same 797-horsepower fitted within the Challenger. Now, through the use of a new powertrain option, a 2.7-Liter supercharged engine, the Charger can finally offer the same perks the Challenger has offered customers in the SRT Hellcat Redeye. The spy shots show that Dodge has covered up the hood of the vehicle. The images give the impression that the Charger has a taller or raised hood, further evidence of hiding this larger powertrain to replace the 6.2-Liter V8 engine. Why does the test-vehicle hide the hood? 

Spy Test Photos Link Redeye With Charger

The SRT Hellcat Redeye muscle car features a signature twin-snorkel hood that allows for greater air intake to maximize horsepower and speed. This is also thanks to a dual-stage fuel pump setup. Dodge knows in order to produce the Hellcat Redeye for the Charger, it must have this design to enhance its powertrain. Dodge would only produce the Charger with a Redeye trim possibility with similar speed measurements as well. The Redeye is expected to hit a 0 to 60 mark in under four seconds for the Charger version, as the Challenger met this mark with a 3.7 second time. The Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye offered a remarkable 11.6 second quarter-mile time and we’re certain the Charger Redeye version will match or exceed this time. For those who are seeking a chance to get their hands on the upcoming 2021 Dodge Charger, they may have to wait till summer or beyond. For now, we’re ready to help our customers into our current line-up of fresh Dodge muscle cars.
