The 22nd edition of the Dodge Hemi Challenge, the longest-continuous-running specialty race in NHRA history, will once again take center stage at the 69th annual Dodge Power Brokers NHRA U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park.
The event, a unique fan-favorite annually, features vintage '68 Dodge Dart and Plymouth Barracuda factory “package cars” that dominated the NHRA SS/AH class for more than five decades.
This year’s Dodge Hemi Challenge victor will be awarded $15,000 and, for the second year, a one-of-a-kind, custom-made trophy created by Tom Patsis of Cold Hard Art, a local Brownsburg, Ind.-based artist, former NHRA welder-fabricator, and winner of the 2021 Netflix competition series Metal Shop Masters.

The Dodge Hemi Challenge will be streamed live on NHRA.tv.
