MotorTrend Premieres Charger SRT Hellcat in Drag Race
After last year’s Hellcat-free drag race on YouTube, MotorTrend was inundated with requests to include the Dodge Charger Hellcat in this year’s World’s Greatest Drag Race 6, which premieres September 23 at www.youtube.com/motortrend . Mississauga drivers won’t want to miss any of the action, so be sure to tune in.
Since both the Challenger Hellcat and Charger Hellcat were new last year, they technically qualify to be entrants in this year’s race, and not just in Best Driver’s Car but also in the famous drag race. But last year’s Best Driver’s Car didn’t have either the Charger or Challenger Hellcats participating, and many fans objected to that.
So another participating vehicle had to be cut to make room for the Dodge Charger Hellcat SRT to be in this year’s drag race. Would the Hellcat be fast enough? It’s best time was 11.9 seconds for a quarter mile race, going 122.8 miles per hour. But now the Hellcat has done even better, running an 11.86-second quarter. You will have to check out this year’s race to find out how it did!
