Fresh off the heels of Chevrolet’s reveal of its 2017 entry in the Xfinity Series, competitor Dodge has unveiled its own make and model for next year in Nascar’s top feeder series—the 2012 Dodge Challenger.
“You’re all used to seeing a car like this on the track”, said Will Korn, spokesman and chief stockboy for Big Al’s Used Mopar Parts, as a Mike Harmon-owned Dodge was rolled onto the hotel meeting room floor. “But I think you’re all looking to see what we have to offer for next year”, Korn continued as he placed a large tablecloth over the car.
“And now, I give you the future of Dodge’s Nascar efforts—the 2012 Dodge Challenger race car!”, and with that exclamation, Korn pulled the cloth over the car, revealing the same car that had just been rolled in. “This car will take Dodge Motorsports into the new era of stock car racing, and anybody who wants a good deal on a gently-used rocker arm can see me after this press conference for a deal you just can’t pass up!
“Are there any questions?”, Korn asked to the empty Atlantic Meeting Room A at the Country Lodge in Daytona Beach, Florida. “None? Well, I can see that you’re all behind us going forward into the 2017 season. There’s no lack of focus on this year though—all we need is a few “big ones” and one of our drivers could, theoretically, make the first-ever Xfinity Series Chase!”
Korn then pushed the car out of the meeting room back to a waiting trailer, remarking that the room needed to be cleared immediately for the Country Lodge World Famous $5.99 Salad Bar.
