Dodge Challenger SRT Trans Am Car
Dodge racing fans will want to follow the Trans Am race at Mid-Ohio this weekend for the series debut of the Dodge Challenger SRT. Two Challengers will be entered into the race with Tommy Kendall and Cameron Lawrence at the wheel of each car.
If Kendall’s name sounds familiar that is because he has been an analysis for NBC and Fox. He has also won a Trans Am and IMS championship as well as the 24 Hours of Daytona.
Of the return to Trans Am racing Tommy Kendall had the below to say.
“I’ve wanted to return to Trans Am competition for the longest time and then I finally kind of accepted that it wasn’t going to happen,” said Kendall. “It’s funny how things work. Being coaxed back into the Viper GTS-R program back in 2012 helped pave the way to my return. Over the last 10–15 years, I’ve committed to only doing things that are fun. Trans Am was a huge part of my professional life and to get to play a small part in keeping up the visibility here is really exciting.”
Cameron Lawrence currently holds the lead in his class and will keep those points while switching manufactures. Of the switch to driving a Dodge he said the below.
“We definitely want to continue the success we’ve had and we’re really excited to bring Dodge on board,” said Lawrence. “We want to stay on top and keep the season rolling with the momentum we’ve had. It’d be really cool to get some wins for Dodge and SRT Motorsports this season, and although it’s going to be tough adapting halfway through the season, we’re going to do our best to get the Dodge Challenger SRT to victory lane.”
