As the Official High Performance Driving School of Dodge//SRT, Bondurant was proud to be represented at the recent Lucas Oil NHRA Summernationals in Indianapolis. Mike Kessler, Bondurant’s Director of Sales and Business Development was at the track to lend his support to Dodge and Leah Pruett, American drag racer for Don Schumacher Racing.
For two races beginning with the Lucas Oil NHRA Summernationals, Matt Hagan’s Mopar Dodge//SRT Funny Car and Leah’s Dodge//SRT Top Fuel Dragster sported the new “Demon-possessed” SRT Hellcat Redeye paint schemes. The paint scheme was inspired by the recent unveiling of the new 797-horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, the most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world.
“We couldn’t be more honored to have joined our partner Dodge and Leah Pruett for the action-packed races in Indianapolis,” said Kessler. “It was particularly exciting to be a part of the public unveiling of the Hellcat-inspired livery on Leah’s Top Fuel Dragster. The paint scheme is the perfect tribute to the new Hellcat Redeye, which will become a part of our Drag Racing program in the coming months.”
On Saturday, Jul 18th, Kessler joined Mark Whitney from Dodge and Matt Ambroziak with JRT Agency, to muscle Pruett’s drag car to the start line. Leah Pruett qualified for both the Top Fuel and Factory Stock fields with her Mopar dragster landing in the second spot with a 3.850 best.
