The moment that someone really grasps the emotion, feeling and even history that happens inside a race car is a thing of beauty. When one can convey that moment with words, it is truly special. That is what the lucky prick of the day, Josh Jaquot has done with his tale of the Challenger SS. The last few paragraphs almost brought me to tears. Yes, I’m a sucker for a good read, but you can almost feel what Josh felt when the beast lit up.
Edmunds had been invited by the Chrysler boys to run a few passes at Las Vegas Speedway in one of only two Challenger Super Stock concept cars. That’s right, a lucky journo gets to plunk his butt in an irreplaceable multi million dollar hero car.
How did he do? Well, you’ll just have to read to find out. Just a tip, he made a hero of himself!
