Dodge is expected to announce later this morning its motorsports plans for next season and notably absent on the list will be any mention of NASCAR. Instead its expected that parent company Chrysler will focus on its new SRT performance brand, which kicked off a racing offensive this weekend as the Viper returned to the American Le Mans Series.
