The Dodge Charger Hellcat is one of the fastest cars on the planet so it only makes sense that they hop back in. Dodge’s roots go back to the early NASCAR days and their drivers, Lee and Richard Petty, Buddy Baker, and Bobby Allison played an important part in forming what NASCAR is today. Dodge was last in the NASCAR Premier Series season in 2012 when Brad Keselowski drove the iconic “Blue Deuce”
to his first championship and the first in the series for car owner Roger Penske.

When Sergio Marchionne, chief executive officer of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, took over Chrysler the company wasn’t in the greatest of shape financially. According to an article on Yahoo News, now Marchionne says the books are balanced and it may be time to come back. “I had dinner with Jim France last night,” Marchionne said, “and we discussed the possibility.” France is the executive vice-president of NASCAR. Now they are looking at the best way to get back in the sport. Prior to pulling the plug, Dodge unveiled the prototype of its 2013 Generation 6 Charger race car At Las Vegas Motor Speedway in early 2012 but it never raced. No date for the return or what the team would be has been decided yet. Soon, I hope, very soon.
