For 1969 Dodge accumulated several disappointments in the NASCAR races. To see how their main rivals surpassed them. To turn around the situation in that year, they presented the Dodge Charger Daytona, a limited and high-performance edition of the Dodge Charger, created solely to be able to win races. And he won them, starting with his first participation in the competition, which was followed by numerous records both in the race and in pole position.
His successes on the track, his unique characteristics, and a radical aesthetic were turning the Dodger Charger Daytona into one of the most desired models. Hence his surname has been reserved for occasions when the American firm launched a limited edition with more equipment bulky and unique series.
