Dodge Fans Have a New 11,000 HSP 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat to Cheer For
Fresh off a win last week in New Hampshire, Matt Hagan is excited to debut his all-new 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Funny Car. Hagan’s new ride arrives just in time for the Dodge Mile-High NHRA Nationals. At 36, Hagan is already a two-time NHRA Funny Car World Champion. Hagan believes his new Funny Car will be especially popular with fans because of its resemblance to the recently unveiled 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody.
Incredible Horsepower on the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat
With a phenomenal rating of 11,000 horsepower, the Funny Car will go 330 MPH in under 4 seconds. Hagan expects fans to feel the passion of racing. Hagan says “the graphics really mimic the flared appearance of the Charger Widebody, and I think fans are going to dig the look.”
Hagan told the media gathered at the Bandimere Speedway, in Morrison, Colorado, that he owns a 1969 Dodge Dart and he understands that fans love Dodge because “They want to buy a performance car and run it on the street!”
Fans Have Passionate Connection
Kevin Hellman, who manages the Dodge Brand, was also on hand for the unveiling. He agrees that “Fans relate to the vehicles on the track.” Hellman pointed out the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody next to the funny car. Hellman says “Charger drivers have an emotional connection to the race cars. They say, I may not have 11,000 horsepower but I have 707 horsepower and I’m still king of the streets.”
Dodge just announced the Widebody Package for the Charger SRT Hellcat and the Dodge Charger Scat Pack in late June. The 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody does indeed have 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. Drivers will be able to go a top speed of 196 miles per hour. Buyers can order the 2020 Chargers this fall and expect deliveries early next year.
Hagan is hoping to get his first win at Bandimere this year. Hagan says, “Last year, I had the honor of debuting the Mopar Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Funny Car body, it’s cool to be able to follow that up this year by revealing the new Widebody.”
Dragster Leah Pritchett Hopes to Repeat her Victory
Mopar Dodge Top Fuel driver Leah Pritchett joined Hagan and Hellman for pictures. Pritchett hopes to repeat her victory at Bandimere. Last July, Pritchett blew the doors off her competition, rocketing her Mopar Dodge 1320 “Angry Bee” Top Fuel dragster to a mile-high win.
The Dodge Mile-High NHRA Nationals presented by Pennzoil will run July 19-21 at Bandimere Speedway.
