Dodge Viper ACR sets another track record

SALISBURY, NC –  January 25, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Add Carolina Motorsports Park (CMP) to the long list of race tracks that the Dodge Viper has the claim of owning the fastest lap ever recorded for a production car.

Brad Wood of Gerry Wood Dodge Viper in Salisbury, NC set the lap record at CMP. The record was confirmed by CMP’s David Watkins who commented “Congratulations on it, that’s a damn good lap time in any car at CMP and you did it in a production car so my hat’s off to you sir!”

The Official production car lap record at CMP now stands at 1:37:040 in the stock 2017 Dodge Viper ACR. To make it even more special, Brad Wood drove the car from the dealership showroom to the track, set the record, and drove it home.

“It was a great privilege to be able to do this today, to extend the record of the racetrack supremacy of this amazing hand built American supercar. To drive it to and from the track for this accomplishment was just icing on the cake,” said Brad Wood.
