Atwill Motor Sports

Your team at Atwill Service Centre is passionate about what they do. We love the industry so much that much of our free time is devoted to motor sports of all kinds. Vintage vehicle restoration and racing are a couple of the pass times that Atwill Motor Sports is involved in.

We recently took delivery of a Dodge Challenger from the Chrysler drag pak program. While still under completion this car promises to be a real show stopper. We're proud to have been chosen to take part in this great tradition.


About the Super Stock Dodge Challenger

Based on the Challenger SRT8®, the prototypes were finished in Stock Eliminator configuration. They ran successfully in June 2008 as proof-of-concept and for NHRA certification. Mopar dropped approximately 1,000 lbs. off the production Challenger SRT8 by eliminating major production components and systems. To accentuate the weight savings, they also feature added composite, polycarbonate and lightweight components designed for drag racing that will be part of the new Package Car program.

The engine was repositioned to improve driveline angle and weight distribution. The wheelbase was shortened by 1/2 inch. They also feature a front cradle with bolt-in crossmember and solid engine mounts.

Mopar will build a minimum of 100 Challenger Drag Race Package Cars to meet NHRA requirements. The modern factory-prepped Challenger Drag Race Package Car begin as a special Body-in-White (BIW) from Chrysler's Brampton, Ontario, Canada, assembly plant. The body sealer, sound deadener and undercoat are eliminated along with windshield wipers, the HVAC system, airbag components, rear seats, power steering, exhaust, underbody heat shields, cross-car and side impact door beams, rear bumper beam, and rear deck lid spoiler. Unique components include a composite lift-off hood with functional scoop, Viper-style front seats, polycarbonate door windows, lightweight cooling module, manual rack and pinion steering, cable-operated deck lid release, lightweight front brake assembly, and cable-operated throttle linkage and pedal assembly.

The drag racer has three engine options—6.1-liter or 5.7-liter HEMI or 5.9-liter Magnum® Wedge—as well as manual or automatic transmission. The Challenger Drag Race Package Car will be eligible to run in three Eliminator categories—Comp, Super Stock and Stock—and potentially 40 classes.
