The Vigneault Motorsports on the bottom above the rocker panel (lower door) was the clue for me, along with the Steve White Motorsports on the rear bumper cover. One thing for sure is that Big Red is a Great looking Challenger and I don't think that it's priced poorly for what Luke probably has into that Beast! (y)

testing the water, not really serious about selling Red, but would love to step into a lighter smaller platform and would really consider going serious road racing in AI

Surprisingly enough, at the local Automotive Country Club near us , the Mazda Miata's have their own Series and they are pretty darned quick around a track!

Luke, by AI did you mean E-Racing with a simulator?

American Iron™ is a race series that calls to mind the legendary battles of the 1960's when champions competed against each other to win stoplight and drive-in bragging rights for their brand of choice. American Iron™ provides a forum where domestic "ponycars" such as Ford Mustangs, Chevrolet Camaros, and Pontiac Firebirds can challenge each other equipped with the finest performance products that aftermarket tuners and manufacturers have in their arsenals. This class was designed to showcase the massive improvements that careful suspension, brake, and chassis modifications can make to these amazingly popular cars and provide a spectator show for fans of these cars that is second to none.
The Series offers competitors three classes, Camaro Mustang Challenge (CMC), American Iron (AI) and American Iron Extreme (AIX). CMC features 1979-present Mustangs and 1982-1997 Camaros and Firebirds with stock and smog legal engines along with "spec" springs, shocks, tires, and brakes. The AI class is a step up from CMC with many more modifications allowed, but is still cost controlled with a 9.5:1 power-to-weight ratio, a tire limitation, and other restrictions placed on the cars. For drivers that wish to race in less restricted format, AIX is a "sky's the limit" class, where nearly anything short of a tube frame is legal.

Thanks for the info Luke! That looks Really Cool!

If you jumped into something lighter, what would you want to drive?

Joel Vandiver's (used to post over on LXF as joelvan) 426 stroked Challenger that won a NASA SE championship and was a house track car on Speed Channel's "Are You Faster Than a Red Neck?"!!! There's a couple articles floating around about him and his LXs. Before that primer green Challenger he raced an early Pursuit Charger still in its black and white livery. One of the true OG's in road racing modern Mopars.
