Mopar owned the Denver area from Thursday, July 22, through Sunday the 25th as the NHRA made their annual trip to Thunder Mountain, better known as Bandimere Speedway, for the Mopar NHRA Mile-High Nationals.

Festivities began on Thursday night with a block party in Golden, Colorado.

The Mopar ’10 Challenger also took part in a special race during the pre-finals ceremonies on Sunday. Jim Sassorossi, Director—Mopar Parts, Sales and Marketing, and SpeedFreaks radio host Kenny Sargent introduced the Mopar ’10 to the cheers of the Thunder Mountain fans.

In addition to the on-track success of Team Mopar drivers Allen Johnson, Matt Hagan and David Bogner, Mopar also captured a pair of special awards at the Mopar Mile-Highs.

Eaton, Ohio’s Keith Lynch took home the NHRA Best Appearing Car award for his Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak vehicle.
