So, I drive by Portland International Raceway today, and this nice 2015 Challenger pulls out in front of me! Of course I followed the car:
We wound around a few streets, and ended up near a very large convention center type place (google map it).
He pulled into the parking lot, and so did something else:
A Hellcat! Another 2015 was pulling out, so I asked the driver if we could chat. We talked for a few minutes, but he had to leave for a photo shoot Dodge is doing in the Portland area. He said "walk over to that big building, inside is 50 2015 Dodge Challengers". You know what I did, I walked into that building! I took a quick photo, just in case I was going to get the boot out the door:
Is this a Challengertalk version of heaven? Yes it is! Look at those stripes. There were a few others, but I didn't want to get popped.
Out of view to the left were a bunch more, but I didn't want to have someone give me grief for taking photos. But I did take one more:
It looks like they have a work area for wrenching on them. NICE motor!
Upon leaving this nice red Hellcat pulled out, so I followed him. He pulled over and chatted with me for a few.
I think they were on the way to a photo shoot, and didn't want me to follow him.
Here's what these various sources told me: Dodge has rented Portland International Raceway for the next week and a half. The Hellcat will be on the track Wednesday July 16th from 3 to 4 PM. This coincides with the Beaches Cruise In at PIR, and on that date, our club PDX Challengers, is a featured club at this cruise in! Wouldn't it be cool if the Dodge folks stopped by and brought a car or 2 and hang out with us? Uh, hell yeah!
I highly suggest you Challenger owners from the Pacific NW stop by www.pdxchallengers.com
for more info, and we are on Facebook, too. FLAT TOP, we hope to see you soon!
