The 2018 edition of Carlisle Chrysler Nationals is where visitors can feel the thrills again in a grand show of over 3,000 classics. Visitors can get even more fun strolling around the Fairgrounds venue with the newly launched Legends of 1968 T-shirts and accessories by Quarter Mile Addiction.
As drag racing cars age, they take on a new charm and exude their legendary aura even more. The Carlisle Chrysler Nationals this year will celebrate 50 years of thrill and competition that was kept going by the legends of 1968 – Dodge Dart, Dodge Super Bee, Dodge Charger, Plymouth Barracuda and the Plymouth Road Runner. The Fairgrounds venue will turn into a paradise for Mopar lovers, and on show will be year-wise categories of makes and models, indoor displays, fun for kids, and special prizes.
The Dodge Super Bee, featured on the Quarter Mile Addiction T-shirt, will be a special attraction of the show.

The Coronet line car moved from a standard engine with 426 Hemi option in 1968 to an A12 package the next year. This was the 440 Six Pack, featuring fiberglass hood, 15”steel wheels and other features that made it the coolest street racer from an OEM. In 1971, Dodge redesigned the car into a Charger with an E-body platform, but discontinued the Super Bee the following year.
The new Quarter Mile Addiction merchandise is meant to up the excitement of the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals, featuring the Dodge Super Bee along with other legends of 1968 – the 1968 models of SS Barracuda, Plymouth Roadrunner, Dodge Charger and the SS Dart.
There is more to follow for drag racing fans in the form of three other big events, the Mopar Nationals, Mopar Fest, and the NHRA US Nationals. Quarter Mile Addiction will be launching special tributes that fans can take with them and stand out for their passion for the bygone era of drag racing.
The ‘Legends of 1968’ T-shirt is available for both men and women in all sizes, and is manufactured in the US. All merchandise can be bought from the official Quarter Mile Addiction store, which offers global shipping with normal and speed deliveries.
