Is power the great equalizer? Then Luke Vigneault’s Dodge Challenger wants to be the most equal, apparently, at the upcoming Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge.

Normally found competing in the Optima Ultimate Street Car Challenge, the Dodge is good for some 950 horsepower and 943 lb.-ft. of torque thanks to a Magnuson-supercharged, 426 cubic-inch V8 engine.

Other mods include Ultimate Performance JRi shocks, custom control arms and a “full body aero package” from Downforce Solutions.

Think your track car is faster? Come prove it at the Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge October 12-15 at NCM Motorsports Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

What is the Ultimate Track Car Challenge? It’s our annual no-holds-barred track competition that simply seeks the fastest machines on four wheels. The rules are brief: Car and driver must just pass a safety inspection. Period.

Pretty much everyone is welcome: New, old, factory-bought and home-built. Wings are cool. So are box flares, giant intercoolers and sequential shifters.
