Mopar will help celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of the premier Mopar enthusiast events on the annual car show calendar when the Mopar Nationals roll into National Trail Raceway near Columbus, Ohio on Aug. 1315. Mopar will bring its Mopar Direct Connection Trailer and display vehicles to the event and will name a fourth winner in its popular Mopar “Top Eliminator” enthusiast program.
The 2010 event will host a number of new and exciting display vehicles at the Mopar Direct Connection Trailer, including the new Mopar ’10 Challenger, the first-ever special edition Mopar version of a Chrysler group vehicle. The Mopar ’10 was revealed last month at the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals event in Golden, Colo.
Among other Mopar cars to be exhibited is the Mopar Direct Connection Test Lab vehicle, used to demonstrate the potential of Mopar performance parts and showcase new and exciting parts for enthusiasts. The Mopar Direct Connection Trailer will also feature a number of fun activities for Mopar Nationals attendees, who can test their racing skills by taking the wheel of a video-game version of a Mopar HEMI-powered NHRA Funny Car and also try their hand in the Mopar sprint car simulator.
The fourth of six members of Mopar’s 2010 “Top Eliminator” program will be selected from among hundreds of show cars at the Mopar Nationals event. The Mopar “Top Eliminator” program, now in its fourth year, recognizes the most skilled Mopar enthusiasts and their restyled or customized Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram vehicles. Winning vehicles will be displayed in the Mopar Alley at the 2010 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, November 25, 2010. The Mopar Nationals winner will be recognized on Sunday during the awards ceremony.
