Default Challenger makes its NASCAR debut

Just a reminder that the Dodge Challenger will make it's racing debut in the Nationwide Series during the July 4th weekend at Daytona.
Whether you like NASCAR or not, it will be great to see our Challenger rubbing fenders with the bowtie and blue oval guys again. Remember, that the last time the Challenger was racing on a track that had turns in it was 1970 in the Trans-Am series. At the very least, it will be nice to see something other than "cookie-cutter" cars on the track.

For this, I will have to break down and watch the race. I haven't ever since NASCAR introduced "the car of tomorrow."

Well it appears as if the new Challenger met the Challenge!
Now that the tire smoke is all gone, here's where they finished...

4th place was Brad Keselowski in the Discount Tire car who started the race on the pole.
13th place was Packer Kligerman, a rookie in the other Discount Tire car after starting second on the front row.
17th place was Justin Allgaler in the Verizon Wireless car after starting in the fourth postion.

It was a good showing for the Challenger's first outing as they were strong throughout the entire race. Several issues kept the Dodges from higher finishes...Brad sliding through his pit box, and having to backup on his last stop. Justin losing his rear bumper due to heavy bump drafting was to prevent his hooking up with Brad for a run to the front of the field. In fact Justin did some good driving in order not to lose control and wreck. Packer was in Brad's backup car which apparently was not really set-up properly for the race, but still drive to a 13th place finish.

Overall a really good race...most fans were glad to see Jr. win driving his Wranger Chevy dressed in his dad's colors and number....(perhaps for the last time...)
