Dodge returns to the event with the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody, offering a combination of several heritage appointments and improved performance thanks to wider tires and wheels.

Dodge will also feature the 2021 Dodge Charger on display, the recent winner of the “Performance Sedan of Texas,” as well as the Durango model, the reigning “SUV of Texas,” as determined by TAWA.
