Dodge ranks third in NASCAR Premier Series race victories with 217, trailing only Chevrolet and Ford.

There have been a whole lot of very cool Dodges in NASCAR and one of the most remarkable was the No. 71 K&K Dodge that owner Nord Krauskopf and driver Bobby Isaac took to the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1971 and set 28 speed records with.
