Charger
Vehicle Model

A car produced by Dodge.

The Dodge Charger was often used in drag racing competitions in the "muscle car era."  The Dodge Charger was the car of 1966 NASCAR Grand National (the series that would eventually become Sprint Cup) driver's champion David Pearson.  It was also the car of NASCAR Winston Cup (the series that would eventually become Sprint Cup) driver's champion Richard Petty in 1974 and 1975.  Later the new Charger would replace the Intrepid as Dodge's entry in NASCAR competition.
