Dodge has announced the schedule for the second annual Roadkill Nights event to be held during the 2016 Woodward Dream Cruise this August.
2016 Roadkill Nights by Dodge
FCA's Dodge division has announced the schedule of its upcoming "Roadkill Nights" a year after the inaugural event was held in the Pontiac Silverdome parking lot as part of Dodge's participation in the 2015 Woodward Dream Cruise.
"Woodward is one of (if not the) most famous 'Muscle Car Corridors' in the country and, as far as we know, this is the first time ever that street racing on it will be legal," said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT – FCA, North America. "Drag racers will be able to show their muscle when Woodward is closed from South Boulevard to Rapid Street in Pontiac to create what is sure to be an epic kick off to the weekend's cruise events."
It also appears that Chrysler's performance division is onto something. Encouraged by last year's turnout, Dodge (along with its partner TEN: The Enthusiast Network) decided to expand the event schedule to include two cities in 2016. The first, held at the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas on June 18th, drew nearly 12,000 spectators.
