Victory Junction Gang Camp and Dodge partnered for the auction of the 43rd Dodge Challenger SRT8 2008 on eBay and the $228,143.43 winning bid was placed by Richard Martin from Delaplane, Va.

“Dodge is elated the auction of the only B5 Blue 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 raised so much money for such a worthy cause,” said Mike Accavitti, the Director–Dodge Brand, SRT and Motorsports Global Marketing. “I have a deep respect for the work that Kyle and Pattie Petty and all the folks at Victory Junction Gang Camp do, it is truly an honor for Dodge to be able to help further their mission”.

“We are extremely excited that the No. 43 Dodge Challenger has raised $228,143.43 for Victory Junction Gang Camp!", affirmed Kyle Petty, the Founder of Victory Junction Gang Camp. "It has been a pleasure working with Dodge on this program and we are very thankful that the car raised enough to send so many children to camp”.

“It is great that the enthusiasm people have for the all-new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 has been the catalyst that will help so many people,” said Accavitti. “Consumers couldn’t wait to get a new Challenger, and that excitement will benefit the lives of young people throughout the United States through these three organizations”.
