Dodge back in NASCAR? Not any time soon, per Auburn Hills.

Turns out that Dodge isn't that close to returning to NASCAR after all.

Come on in for more....

Yesterday, we reported (via that Mopar/SRT head Ralph Gillies said  that funding for a return to NASCAR's been approved, and they're talking to teams.

Dodge back in NASCAR? Not any time soon, per Auburn Hills.

The folks in Auburn Hills have clarified that statement, saying: "Chrysler Group’s decision to leave NASCAR competition at the end of the 2012 season was based solely on not being able to develop the correct structure to fit our overall business and competitive objectives.” adds that at the time Chrysler withdrew, Ralph Gilles had said that Penske had offered a “one-stop shop” for engines, drivers, and sponsors that could not be replaced in a way that would allow SRT to race at the level that was desired, in the time available." 

And, that the funding that had been approved was to be for the 2013 season...before Ma Mopar pulled the plug on the whole program last fall.

Bottom line: Bowties, Blue Ovals and (BLASPHEMY) in NASCAR's top division, but no Mopars any time soon.

Just please bring Dodge back to Nascar! I haven't watched a race since they left. I am a diehard mopar fan. My dad always had mopars and I was raised on them. And I am ready to fight anyone who puts them down. My husband worked for Cummins Engine for 38 years and we had the Cummins Diesel trucks. He had 3 different Dodge Dakotas driving to work and back. I had a new Intrepid in 1999. And then a Durango in 2001. So, I would love to see them return...I have no one to root for! Thanks....
