About MATS: MATS is a three-day motor sports extravaganza conducted at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) in Las Vegas, Nev. The event focuses on Chrysler-powered vehicles and features the richest payout at a brand-specific drag race in the Western United States. MATS also includes related activities such as a car show, autocross, MoPowered cruise, True Street challenge, swap meet and manufacturers midway. A recent addition is Pony Car Wars pitting 2006 and newer Dodge Challengers, Chevrolet Camaros and Ford Mustangs on the LVMS quarter-mile. Visit their website at matslv.com
UPDATE: MATS to Host Tom Hoover, HEMI® Engine Developer, and Original Members of Ramchargers Drag Racing Team
Recognized as one of the true innovators in engine technology, Hoover served as a Chrysler Corporation automotive engineer from 1955 to 1979. He was responsible for launching the company’s HEMI® race program and developing the renowned 426 HEMI ® engine, which employed specially designed hemispherical combustion chambers for enhanced performance in a wide range of applications.
Hoover welcomed the opportunity to participate in the 12th annual MATS, which will honor both the 50th anniversary of the HEMI® engine and the 100th anniversary of the Dodge brand. MATS is one of the most popular gatherings to celebrate Detroits original performance car era, so it only makes sense to recognize the half-century mark for the HEMI® at this event, Hoover said. I look forward to visiting with many fellow Mopar® fans in Las Vegas.
