Mopar Supercenter is helping to sponsor the SRT Nationals 2006

In appreciation to our customers, we have decided to give back to so many who have made us who we are. We are adding to the first 200 paid registrations, a FREE $20.00 guest pass to the events. If you are thinking about attending, don't hesitate, here’s your chance to register and bring a friend or spouse for less.

We are also holding a customer appreciation meet & greet event on Wed. evening at the host hotel. This event is where you will have the chance to meet so many of the people who are making this event possible. Others that that will be at the event, Ralph Gilles, Mopar Performance, SRT Engineering & Marketing, Kicker Audio, and many more!

We will not be onsite to sell any products, we will be there in support of our customers. We feel that we take enough of your hard earned funds as it is, so rather than setting up a vendor booth, we just want to meet you. We want everyone to have a great time, and we are doing our part to assist this awesome event. We hope you decide to attend as well, for it will be the event of the year!

Welcome to the 2006 SRT Nationals!
The event will be held July 19, 20, 21, and 22 at Heartland Park Raceway (HPT) in Topeka, Kansas. Heartland Park has recently updated all of their facilities, the roadcourse and dragstrip have new asphalt, and a brand new autox pad has been built in preparation for the SCCA Solo2 Nationals. Please visit the Heartland Park Web site at
Ralph Gilles, designer of the Charger, 300C, Magnum, and tail section of the Viper Comp Coupe will be with us the entire event. An accomplished driver, Ralph has offered to be a driving instructor for our roadcourse event. Ralph will start the event with a keynote address at the Wednesday evening Meet-n-Greet, and close the event at the Saturday Awards Banquet. Outside of those official duties, we've got him as an automotive enthusiast for the rest of the event.
We're also proud to announce that the SRT Engineering team, the SRT Marketing team, and Mopar Performance will be at the event, not as out of reach corporate types, but in the cars with us. Attend the group seminars or talk to the expert’s one on one
Pro Racing teams will be at the event, but instead of the show cars they bring to their usual appearances, they'll have the real racecars that they are currently campaigning in their Nationals points events. Not only will they be shaking the cars down in their testing sessions on the track, they will also be giving rides on the roadcourse.
The full SRT Line-up, and the Turbo Dodges of SDAC are the featured vehicles of the SRT Nationals in 2006. Of course, all of the Mopar families are invited to join us.
