This past weekend, Dodge, Gas Monkey Garage owner Richard Rawlings and Motley Crue invited all Charger, Challenger and Viper owners to the ultimate party and owners’ experience, the “Dodge Rocks Gas Monkey” car show and concert. The Nov. 1 event at Gas Monkey Live, a new state-of-the-art second Gas Monkey music venue in Dallas, culminated in an exclusive performance by the iconic rock band Mötley Crüe, mid-way through their All Bad Things Must End “Final Tour” of large arenas across North America.
“Mötley Crüe, Richard Rawlings, Gas Monkey Live and Dodge muscle cars are all awesome by themselves. Put all four together with a full day celebration of Dodge’s 100th anniversary and you’ve got an event that will not only make the Dodge brothers proud, but also will be something that Dodge enthusiasts talk about for years. ‘Dodge Rocks Gas Monkey’ was a not-to-miss opportunity to help kick start Dodge’s next 100 years.” – Tim Kuniskis, CEO, Dodge and SRT Brands Chrysler Group LLC.
At the car show, Dodge highlighted the new 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat – the fastest, most powerful sedan in the world and the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the fastest and most powerful muscle car ever. Both have a 707-horsepower, 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI® V-8 engine. Additional Dodge and SRT vehicles, such as the 2015 Challenger Scat Pack, Charger R/T, Dart GT, Durango R/T and Viper GTS were also on display.
Activities leading up to the Motley Crue concert included rides in Dodge Viper drift cars, Dodge Hellcat Thrill Rides, full-size Dodge Charger and Challenger simulators where participants can test their driving skills in a fun and safe environment, a local cover band, and airbrushed Dodge and real Hart and Huntington tattoos.
