Just last week, Dodge and SRT Motorsports revealed that they would once again team up with extreme-sports star Travis Pastrana for yet another season of action and excitement in the Global Rallycross Championship Series. This season, Pastrana Racing will race two rally-spec Dodge Dart vehicles sponsored by Red Bull and Discount Tire.
“At Dodge, racing is an integral part of our heritage and embodies our competitive spirit, so we’re very excited to have Travis Pastrana back in the Dodge Dart for the 2013 season,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO – Dodge Brand. “With a 0-60 time of less than 2-seconds, the Global Rallycross series is the perfect platform to showcase the Dart and the Dodge brand’s passion for performance on and off the track.”
Combining the skill and precision of traditional rally racing along with the action and energy of the X Games, the GRC Series is an exciting and entertaining sport for today’s youth. After a very successful first year, finishing 10th overall, Travis Pastrana has an energy and personality that matches the Dodge brand perfectly. Here at Cumberland Chrysler we look forward to another great season of 600 horsepower, modified cars jumping as much as 70 feet while jockeying for position.
