The drag-oriented, street-legal 2019 #Dodge #Challenger #R/T #ScatPack 1320 is now National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) approved. The Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 was recently given the green light to be modified for competition in #NHRA Stock and Super Stock Sportsman class competition for the 2019 season.
Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320, named for quarter-mile distance (1,320 feet), now legal for drag race competition in National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Stock and Super Stock classes
Named for the quarter-mile distance (1,320 feet), the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is powered by the 392 HEMI V-8 engine that delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. With a quarter-mile elapsed time (E.T.) of 11.70 seconds at 115 miles per hour, the showroom-stock Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is the fastest naturally aspirated, street-legal muscle car available.
The Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 can be modified for competition in NHRA according to Stock and Super Stock class rules. The vehicle will feature a class weight break of 8.23 and carry a minimum weight of 3,400 lbs. Contestants intending to compete at an NHRA event must meet any and all rules and regulations for the category they intend to enter.
A new “Angry Bee” interpretation of the legendary Dodge Super Bee logo marks the vehicle’s front fenders, instrument panel, headlamps, instrument gauge cluster startup splash screen and key fob. The street-to-strip muscle car is beginning to arrive in FCA US dealerships.
“With the new 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 hitting showrooms, we know it’s just a short time before the ‘Angry Bee’ is buzzing the quarter-mile in NHRA and NMCA competition,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “The 1320 brings the drag racing technology we launched on the limited-production Demon and pairs it with the proven 392 HEMI engine to create a blank canvas for the serious grassroots drag racer who may have one car that needs to do double duty — both at the drag strip and on the street.”
The Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is approved to be modified to race in hotly contested NHRA Stock Eliminator and Super Stock competition. In Stock Eliminator, the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 fits directly into the “B” Stock category, with competitors able to move up and down to run in the “A” or “C” Stock classes.
The Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 can compete in the SS/FA class in Super Stock, but is also eligible for other specific classifications such as SS/EA or SS/GA. Grassroots NHRA Sportsman racers will have more flexibility and opportunities to compete and win in a variety of Stock and Super Stock categories by adjusting the NHRA minimum vehicle weight.
The Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 was first announced last year at the 2018 Dodge Mile-High NHRA Nationals near Denver. NHRA star and Dodge brand ambassador Leah Pritchett commemorated the vehicle’s unveiling by carrying a special “Angry Bee”-themed paint scheme on her Top Fuel dragster, which she drove all the way to the event win.
The Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is also approved to race without modification in National Muscle Car Association (NMCA) events, making it a true street/strip vehicle. NMCA features both heads-up and bracket racing, one of the most popular forms of drag racing.
Created for the Quarter-mile
Dodge/SRT engineers added drag-specific components and technologies that allow the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 to hit both the street and the drag strip and deliver quick launches when the Christmas tree goes green at the quarter-mile. The Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 features include:
In drag strip testing compared with a Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 shaves .3 seconds off the quarter-mile time to 11.70 seconds at 115 mph and cuts .3 seconds off the 0-60 mph acceleration time to 3.8 seconds.
The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 Package adds $3,995 to the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $38,995 for the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack. The mandatory automatic transmission adds $1,595 and the destination charge adds $1,495.
