That is good time of year to go. I filled out the form on the dodge website and got a reply. Trucks built after Feb 2019 do not qualify. If anyone wants to let me have your slot, I'll Take it. I only live 3 hours from the school.

do you know if we use their cars or we have to use our own? If I can fly there use their junk and fly home that will be cool. specially if I can drive a Demon or even a HC.

You use their cars and they aren’t hellcats. They do take you on a flying lap in one though. If I’m honest, it’s not any big deal, they have other classes that aren’t complimentary where you get to drive fast cars. I used to work at Intel down the street from the school so I’m gonna make a weekend out of it n see old friends while I’m there. Check out the bondurant website for deets

So I’m wondering why they stopped the program. I know the school went through some financial issues and closed their doors but they’ve found a way to keep operating. I’m wondering if the stoppage of the program was related to this, maybe it was only temporary while they were closed. Idk, might be worth a second try. I’ve got contact info to the school if you’d like to ask them directly.
But like I said, I’m mostly going to meet up with old friends.

Unless they changed recently you cant sell or give your slot to someone else. I went in Feb 2016 and upgraded to the 3 day Hell Cat school. Very good. They had 30+ Hell Cats and about that many Vipers when I went. I drove a 2016 Charger HC just like the one I own today.

I thought it might be worth a shot. I am good at impersonating if I have to. LOL


I think the program was dropped due to the stability of the school and the cost to FCA. Not that many owners ever even went vs. all qualifying SRT vehicles that are sold.

As an FYI, I attended and completed the Frank Hawley drag race school last week. I elected to get certified in the Super Gas cars which allows me to obtain a NHRA Pro Sportsman license (Super gas) which is good down to a 7.50 1/4 mile ET, in a 125” and under wheelbase vehicle. Frank is a real pro and 6 passes in a 9 second race car ain’t to shabby either!!
