Our neighbors to the north are into more than just hockey, curling and snowmobiling. They also love sights and sounds of high-horsepower V8 engines racing side-by-side and bumper-to-bumper. Thats why weve teamed up with our fellow gearheads over at Mopar® and have committed to support NASCAR® in Canada for 2011. In our official role as automotive sponsor, the awesome 2011 Charger R/T and its powerful 5.7L HEMI® will be the pace car at many events throughout the season.
Were also putting some more greenbacks up for grabs for eligible racers. The Dodge Mopar Fast Five will reward the top five participating teams at every race. Weve also sweetened the deal with the Mopar Top Dodge Cup that will recognize the top-five eligible Dodge-Mopar race teams for superior performance over the course of the entire season as determined by the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series final championship driver standings.
Our Dodge vehicles and Mopar parts are a natural fit with NASCAR racing in Canada,” said Ed Broadbear, our vice president of marketing in Canada. Motorsports is at the heart of Dodge. In fact, many of our products are race-inspired, which is why it is so vital for us to support and recognize the passion of drivers and fans that follow the sport.
Well also be the event sponsor for the NAPA Auto Parts 200 as part of the NASCAR Nationwide Series on August 20 at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal.
