Dodge and the Victory Junction Gang Camp have partnered to auction the 43rd 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8(R) on eBay beginning Feb. 12, 2008. The auction timing coincides with Petty Enterprises celebrating 50 years of racing at Daytona International Speedway.


"As a long-time friend of the Pettys, Dodge is delighted to be able to auction the No. 43 Dodge Challenger SRT8 with all the proceeds going to Victory Junction Gang Camp (VJGC)," said Mike Accavitti, Director -- Dodge Brand and SRT Global Marketing, Chrysler LLC. "The No. 43 Challenger will be the only 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 to be painted B5 Blue, this certainly will be an added draw for potential bidders and help out VJGC."

"Dodge has been a staple in the Petty Family and we are thrilled to know that they are partnering with Victory Junction and helping send more kids to camp," said Pattie Petty, VJGC Founder.

The all-new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 features the proven 6.1-liter HEMI(R) V-8 engine mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, a race- inspired interior and an exterior design stays true to Challenger heritage while delivering host of modern features and technologies and "race inspired, street legal" SRT DNA.

Developed by Chrysler's in-house performance engineering organization, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 was engineered with a focus on the five pillars of every SRT vehicle: bold exterior design that resonates with the brand image, a race-inspired interior, world-class ride and handling across a dynamic range, a standout powertrain and benchmark braking.

"The original Dodge Challenger was such an awesome car. I'm happy to see Dodge bringing back such a classic. There is only one way to make the release of the new Challenger better," said Kyle Petty. "That is to paint one similar to The King's famous No. 43 and auction it off for the Victory Junction Gang Camp. The Pettys and Dodge have enjoyed a great relationship. It's an honor to work with them on such a worthwhile program because it will give more kids a chance to go to camp."

The 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 will make its worldwide debut on Feb. 6, at the Chicago Auto Show.
