With day five behind them, David Carr and David Hakim pointed the Dodge Durango SRT® Pursuit Concept east for their next stop, Blackhawk Farms Raceway in South Beloit, Illinois. Constant morning showers had made the wet track surface challenging, but “Speed Trap” – with its 6.2L supercharged HEMI® engine and AWD layout – put the muscle down to all four at its massive Pirelli tires. “Speed Trap” powered though the turns and sweeping curves without getting out of shape. In the afternoon session, the track was dry, which allowed sports cars to take advantage of this narrow and twisty track that favors smaller lightweight vehicles over massive SUVs. This ended up bumping the Durango SRT Pursuit Concept to the 24th spot, but it still remained in the top third of the overall field and first in the Truck/SUV class.
