    Fiat Head Sergio Marchionne has confirmed that Dodge could be returning to NASCAR in a big way in the near future...Dodge left NASCAR's big three divisions in 2012 following Brad Keselowski winning the Cup title .

    Dodge didn't drop off the motorsports map completely, they continued to support the Canadian Pinty's Series and has maintained it's support in the SCCA Trans Am Series.

    We can only hope...

    I really hope we get a 4th manufacturer, but who would go with them? Richard Petty? RCR? Ganassi?

    I think SHR made a huge mistake moving to Ford, a move to Dodge of it was there would make complete sense. Hope this is true, miss Dodge.

    According to jayski if they do it won't be till at least 2018. They have submitted no car for NASCAR to approve as of yet.

    I'm surprised NASCAR hasn't let them use the Gen6 Charger they had in 2013 as a basis in order to jump-start the process. Supposedly that car is still sitting in the NASCAR R&D Center.

    PARDON ME FOR THIS LITTLE SIDEBAR:

    Hey Burnout, might I be so bold as to suggest you try applying these changes to your game to make your graphics sing? It'll take out all those jagged lines everywhere for one...


    It'll change your life, well your sim life anyway!

    Wish I could, this computer doesn't even handle the game with default cars so well. I'm lucky the game runs at all, let alone handling a few of those models, lol.

    Built in graphics chips, ya that'll be a stumbling block, but I'd still make the changes to everything else. It might work. Do you have a slot for a graphics card on the motherboard?

    Yeah, but the case is too slim to fit a standard sized one in there.

    On Newegg you can pick yourself up a Radeon R7 240 or Geforce GT710 for $40 and both should be fine with the 240 watt psu. Doubling the ram to 8gb would help too.

    Honestly, if they did return, I would want to see the hellcat. The original Charger is UGLY.

    IMO I don't think Dodge can afford it. Their sales are way down and without the Jeep brand propping them up they would be bankrupt by now.
