Durham Drives Mopar Challenger V-10 Drag Pak to Stock Semis at Vegas

By Auto News Log • April 6th, 2011

Andrew Durham of Arcadia, Calif. demonstrated once again that the new 2011 Mopar Challenger V-10 Drag Pak is a force that must be reckoned within the NHRA Sportsman ranks. Durham drove his AA/SA Mopar Challenger V-10 Drag Pak all the way to the semifinals in Stock Eliminator at the SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3.

Just a few weeks after Joseph Teuton scored the first class win for the Mopar Challenger V-10 Drag Pak at the JEGS Cajun SPORTSnationals, Durham qualified his black Mopar V-10 No. 2 overall in Stock with a 9.839 elapsed time, 0.941 under index. The 21-year-old Durham defeated George Thomson, John Calvert and Chad Loge before falling to Toby Lang in the semis. It was just the second race for the young Durham in his race-ready Mopar package car, and his first NHRA National event.

“The car is extremely consistent; it’s amazing,” said Durham. “Mopar has really put together a great package.” Added Andrew’s father and car owner, Ron Durham, “I’ve had a lot of guys tell me this is an amazing car to come out here and be as consistent as it is, without touching it. We went and picked it up in Detroit, we put a fuel sample valve on it and a weight box in it, and that’s all that we’ve done to it. The paint job is perfect. It’s an immaculate piece of engineering and ingenuity by these Mopar guys.”
