Mopar unveiled earlier this week, that it has named Don Schumacher Racing (DSR) Performance as its official licensed engine parts components for its 2015 and 2021 Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak race cars. Last year, DSR officially launched a modern web shop offering racers and automotive enthusiasts performance racing parts and lifestyle gear.
The Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak is a limited-production, purpose-built muscle car aimed at grassroots and professional drag racers competing in sanctioned events by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and the National Muscle Car Association (NMCA). The 2021 version is the quickest, fastest, and most powerful Drag Pak built. The 2021 model made its on-track debut this past March at NHRA Gatornationals, after being delayed a year due to the ongoing pandemic. With Leah Pruett behind the wheel, the latest Drag Pak laid down a 7-second quarter-mile pass in the Factory Stock Showdown (FSS) class.
