Mega Mopar Asks Racers to Pick Sides

Tuesday, June 30, 2015
Charger or Challenger has been a debate among Mopar fans for decades.

Each side has its own racing heritage with legends like Richard Petty and “Big Daddy” Don Garlits or recent racers Matt Hagan and Jeg Coughlin Jr. taking a Charger or Challenger to victory lane time and time again.

At the July 31-August 1 Mega Mopar Action Series stop, Memphis International Raceway (MIR) will do its part to settle the debate on the track.

“We all want to know who’s the best, who’s got the baddest car at the track,” said MIR VP and GM Pam Kendrick. “The Challenger and Charger has been Dodge’s muscle cars since the 1960s. We want to have some fun seeing who has the most muscle in our Charger vs. Challenger trophy class.”

The Charger-Challenger battle is one of four trophy classes scheduled for Mega Mopar, and the most highly anticipated, given the passion each side brings to the table.

Other trophy classes include Street Mopar, Tuff Truck and Hemi Challenge with entry into those races just $25 each.

The trophy classes are just a part of the racing activities schedule for Mega Mopar Action. There will be box/no box bracket racing and autocross. There will also be an all-Mopar car show, vendor midway and swap meet.

Spectator and crew admission for Mega Mopar Action is just $20 with children 6-12 admitted for $5 and kids 5 and under are free.
