The next round of Trans Am Series at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course this weekend will see the debut of the all-new Dodge Challenger Trans Am, fielded by Miller Racing. They will be fielding two Challengers, driven by hotshots Tommy Kendall and Cameron Lawrence.
These Dodge Challenger Trans Am race cars will without a doubt be among the coolest cars on the grid anywhere in the U.S., rivaled only by Chrysler’s own Dodge Viper SRT GTS-R in the IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.
Miller Racing’s switch to Dodge Challenger Trans Am also marks the return of Tommy Kendall to the series where he won four championships in the 90s. He last raced in Trans Am in 2004.
“I’ve wanted to return to Trans Am competition for the longest time and then I finally kind of accepted that it wasn’t going to happen,” said Kendall. “It’s funny how things work. Being coaxed back into the Viper GTS-R program back in 2012 helped pave the way to my return. Over the last 10–15 years, I’ve committed to only doing things that are fun. Trans Am was a huge part of my professional life and to get to play a small part in keeping up the visibility here is really exciting.”
