Re: Dodge Demon: 808 HP on pump gas - 840 on race gas
I will give the Mopar guys credit, they are with a doubt more likely to bring their late model performance cars to the track and run them than owners of any other make. I doubt the average person will get their new Demon Challenger to run in the 9's, at least not on the first trip or two to the track, maybe not even then. Most Hellcats are high-11's to low-12's until the owners figure out how to drive them.
NHRA might potentially banned them from certain classes, such as stock eliminator, but not from use on the track. No track is going to ban a car and its driver unless he runs either 9.99 or faster than 134.99 only then will they get booted until or unless the car has a certified cage and the driver a competition license.
It will be interesting to see how long until the new Demon shows up at the local track, I can't recall the last time there wasn't at least one Hellcat that showed up.
