There's going to be something different about the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this year that might be worth planning a trip around. This year, the show's organizers will give people in Sin City a chance to see the show in person regardless of whether or not they are directly affiliated with the automobile industry. SEMA is one of the largest trade shows the city hosts every year, but normally admission is reserved for people who are there on "official" business. Typically, that means its a mostly off-limits mecca for modified car enthusiasts, but that won't be true this year because on Friday, November 7, much of the show will be publicly on display for "SEMA Ignited." From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., cars from the show will pour out of the Las Vegas Convention Center onto the Strip. The show's organizers

The world didn’t know it, but when the final 2014 Tudor USCC race finished last Saturday it marked more than the end of an inaugural season. It was also the end of Chrysler’s factory-backed SRT Motorsports racing team.
“Our company has made a business decision to discontinue the SRT Motorsports Dodge Viper GTS-R racing program,” said Chrysler design boss and former SRT CEO Ralph Gilles. The company plans to re-direct its focus on selling commercial products, it said today in an official statement.
The team drove its last race on Saturday during the Petit Le Mans in Braselton, Ga. where car number 91 took third place in its class and 11th overall. The number 93 Viper took sixth place in its class and 14th overall in the race. The two-car team won the team and driver titles in the GTLM-Class.
But it seems as if the racing team is one of the casualties that came with Chrysler’s choice to fold the temporarily separate SRT brand back into Dodge. Chrysler announced that plan on May 6 as part of its outlined five-year plan for Fiat, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Maserati and Alfa Romeo in the U.S.
