The 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 is an incredibly fast car that most people will only ever get to discuss. With only 3,300 of these cars built during the Last Call series, very few people own them or get to ride in them. Thankfully, a trio of friends will make this a possibility for many Veterans and children while raising money for charity.

What is 3 Demons Performance?

A trio of muscle car lovers comes together to create the company called 3 Demons Performance. This team, made up of Shane Pitt, Rob Bell, and Josh Winters, will showcase the incredible power and performance of the Demon 170 at several events. This team intends to use their cars for ride-along events, car shows, and drag races.

As much as 30% of any profits from these events will go to charity, giving this company an admirable cause. One of the Demon 170 Challengers is reserved specifically for ride-alongs for Veterans and children.

Who came up with the idea of this charitable use of these drag racers?

Shane Pitt had the initial idea to build a race team around drag racing stock cars. This came after he faced COVID-19 twice, with long-term effects severe enough to cause heart complications. At that time, he had to find ways to reduce stress, which many might not think would happen while drag-racing high-powered machines, but it seems to be working.

After the second bout with COVID-19, and the release of the 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170, Pitt reached out to his high school friends, Rob and Josh, and the trio came together. It’s been more than 25 years since the three collaborated on a car-related project. Still, this group has a common bond and goal, which brings them together.

How are these Demon 170s used and assigned?

The racing cars of four Demon 170 cars allocated to the 3 Demons Performance team, all owned by Pitt Crew Racing. Each car has a specific purpose, outlined by Dodge Garage:

  • Drag Racing Car – Dedicating to racing on the track
  • Event and Ride-Along Car – Used for events, corporate gatherings, and ride-alongs with Active-Duty Military, Veterans, and children
  • Show Car – This car is a showstopper at car events, showcases and presents the design and engineering that went into the Demon 170
  • Community Engagement Car – A Go Mango-colored Demon 170 used for community support and engagement.

Where will these 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170s race and attend events?

The home venue is likely to be the Mason Dixon Dragway. This is the perfect place for this team to participate in local events, drag races, and community outreach programs. The team could tour the Mid-Atlantic region covering Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. They also have plans to run races at Maryland International Raceway. Eventually, the 3 Demons Performance team would like to attend nationwide events.
