Dodge to offer free truck test-drives at Chrysler Museum

Auburn Hills, Michigan – Free test drives of Dodge trucks and an appearance by NASCAR Nextel Cup driver Brendan Gaughan highlight the “What to Give Your Truck for the Holidays” event on Saturday, December 4 at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Michigan. The event runs 10 a.m.- 3 p.m. and admission is free.

Visitors can test drive the 2005 Dodge Ram 1500, 2500/3500 and SRT 10, the all-new Dakota and the Magnum RT, compliments of the Motor City Dodge Dealers. Product specialists will be on hand to answer questions and visitors.

Gaughan, the #62 Orleans Dodge Team owner, will greet visitors and sign autographs from noon-2 p.m. His racing achievements include a record-setting run earlier this year in the Viper-powered Dodge Ram SRT-10 at the DaimlerChrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea. With Gaughan behind the wheel, the SRT-10 posted a two-lap, both-directions average speed of 154.587 mph over a “flying kilometre” on the 4.71 mile oval track. The record was certified by Guinness World Records and the Sports Car Club of America.
