If you remember the super hairy, Super Beard contest Dodge hosted back in March, you may remember that one of the sick prizes up for grabs was an SRT Track Experience Gift Card. The card entitled the winner to one free day of pavement-pounding excitement behind the wheel of the Dodge and SRT high- performance line-up, including the Dodge Challenger SRT8, Dodge Charger SRT8, Dodge Caliber SRT4, Chrysler 300C SRT8 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. While anyone whos ever seen one of the SRT high-performance machines bearing down on them in the rear-view mirror is familiar with the power of SRT, not everyone can say theyve truly felt it. With the SRT Experience, enthusiasts can harness all the power of Chryslers Street Racing and Technology products and flog it into submission on a closed course. Professional instructors from the Richard Petty Driving Experience school you on the proper way to safely dominate the track, and the rest is in your hands. From technical courses designed to challenge the skills you brag to your buddies about to performance laps that will leave skid marks in at least two places, the Experience has it all.
On Wednesday, we here at RLD joined fellow SRT junkies at the famed Virginia International Raceway in Alton, VA, to participate in the SRT Experience for ourselves. We had an amazing time, and we brought back enough footage to keep you hunkered down in front of your monitor for hours. We also logged a lot of quality time with both the instructors and the owners, and well be recounting the entire experience here on RedLetterDodge (right down to the heat stroke). Be sure to follow us closely for behind-the-scenes photos and stories that well eventually be telling our grandchildren.
