The Dodge Challenger Is Going Racing

No, it's not the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Not everything can be the Hellcat. (Sadly.) But this bold green coupe represents SRT's debut in Trans Am racing, starting at Mid-Ohio this weekend.

Miller Racing is fielding two Challengers at the race, and one of them will be driven by four-time series champion Tommy Kendall, who makes his return to Trans Am racing after a 10 year hiatus.

Automobile says the cars sport a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter Hemi V8, good for 499 horsepower, mated to a four-speed manual. Not as powerful as the Hellcat, but lighter thanks to being stripped out for racing duty, and probably faster too thanks to a racing suspension and tires.

Lookin' mighty fine, racing Challenger.
