Challenger Hellcat vs. Camaro ZL1 Drag Race Leads 1/2-Mile Airfield Assault

The Dodge Challenger Hellcat is the kind of machine whose tricks never get old. With its heavy blower whine soundtrack accompanying its uber-quick hauling stunts, this Mopar beast will continue to entertain us for quite some time. As such, when a pack of wild Hellcats showed up at a recent half-mile event, the show was guaranteed.

We're talking about the Wannagofast velocity gathering in Virginia, which allowed plenty of contraptions to stretch their mechanical legs.

Of course, a sprinting brawl involving a Dodge Challenger Hellcat and a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (we're looking at a sixth-gen model here) was the one that caught our eye.

Nevertheless, the rest of the footage is just as worthy of your attention, since the Hellcats, be they Challengers or Chargers, raced just about any kind of machine one could ever wish to see at such an event (no, classic metal is not on the list).

For instance, the title of the wackiest battle went to a sprinting duel that saw a four-door Dodge duking it out with a (are you ready for it?) smart car.

The muscle car genre was obviously well represented, with the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 joining the two slabs of America mentioned above.

Nevertheless, the supercars present at the gathering were eager to demonstrate their abilities, which is why you'll get to see plenty of such contraptions doing their best to reach the other end of the half-mile run as quickly as possible. Oh and it also seems we're dealing with twin-turbo goodies here.

Fortunately, the piece of footage documenting the races also allows us to check out the mph results of the speed devils, so you can get a complete view of this airfield assault.

So, if you're the kind who enjoys betting, now would be a good time to do your thing.
