For a 4th consecutive year, — NMCA to feature Mopar and Dodge//SRT HEMI® Shootout….

Elite competition will be included at all six 2021 National Muscle Car Association (NMCA) events — beginning with at the 19th Annual Muscle Car Mayhem at Bradenton Motorsports Park in Florida.

The brands have partnered to bring back the popular program that provides enthusiasts and owners of model year 2005 and later Gen III HEMI-powered Dodge Challenger, Demon, Hellcat, Charger, Durango, Chrysler 300 and Jeep® performance vehicles with a secure, controlled environment to hone their driving skills and race on the quarter-mile drag strip at a sanctioned event. 

Each NMCA event will have a dedicated tent for Mopar Dodge//SRT HEMI Shootout competitors to register, receive a gift bag and socialize with other Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep performance enthusiasts. The first 75 enthusiasts to register their Mopar-powered modern day muscle car for the HEMI Shootout will receive complimentary entry; a $175 value.

The HEMI Shootout offers competitors the opportunity to race at their own pace and comfort level, along with personalized, step-by-step instruction from dedicated, trained personnel. There will be tablets available with “how-to” videos for burnouts, properly staging the car at the tree and using various vehicle features.

Early registration and test sessions are available on Thursday and Friday, with the Mopar Dodge//SRT HEMI Shootout scheduled to take place on Saturday at each event. The NMCA will provide a special winner’s circle experience, along with awards and payout prizes for winners and runner-up finishers.

For more than 100 years, the Dodge brand has carried on the spirit of brothers John and Horace Dodge. Their influence continues today as Dodge shifts into high gear with muscle cars and SUVs that deliver unrivaled performance in each of the segments where they compete.

2021 marks the year that Dodge is distilled into a pure performance brand, offering Hellcat-powered, 700-plus-horsepower SRT versions of every model across the lineup. For the 2021 model year, Dodge delivers the drag-strip dominating 807-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock, the new 797-horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Redeye, the most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world, and the new 710-horsepower Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat, the most powerful SUV ever. Combined, these three muscle cars make Dodge the industry’s most powerful brand, offering more horsepower than any other American brand across its entire lineup.

In 2020, Dodge was named the “#1 Brand in Initial Quality,” making it the first domestic brand ever to rank No. 1 in the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study (IQS). The Dodge brand also ranked No. 1 in the J.D. Power APEAL Study (mass market). These results are historic because it marks the first time a domestic brand has earned top spots in both J.D. Power studies in the same year.
