The Carlisle Chrysler Nationals has been a premier all-Mopar-themed event since its inception in 1991. As the only July event on the Carlisle Events schedule this year, the weekend of July 11-13 hosts special guests, displays, seminars and, of course, the cars.
The event unofficially launches on Thursday, July 10, with a kick-off party and cruise in at Cumberland Valley Motors in nearby Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, presented by the Mopar Rebellion Car Club. Throughout the weekend, the 100-year history of Dodge will be front and center with unique displays include a special Race Hemi Reunion, a pre-war car display, an A12 Reunion and a special 50th Anniversary display of the popular Plymouth Barracuda.
Friday, the first official day of the event, is also Collector Car Appreciation Day. This day is designed to recognize the importance of the Collector Car hobby and features proclamations, speeches and a collector car showcase in front of the stage. Saturday welcomes back all of the same guests from Friday and brings even more excitement and activities. Those onsite can meet Andre and Renaud Veluzat, builders of the General Lee. Guests will also want to catch the Dodge Power Rallye Tour. Carlisle is one of approximately 50 scheduled tour stops and at Carlisle, a full showcase of 2014 Dodge branded vehicles, including the Charger, Challenger, Dart, Durango, Grand Caravan and Journey will be on display.
Mopar Hall of Fame ceremonies will take place about 30 minutes from Carlisle in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. This truly unique event is open to the public. Details are available at http://moparhalloffame.com/.
