A few Nascar series models were also introduced when the 1969 Dodge Charger was introduced. These included the Charger 500, which offered a white interior and 426 Hemi, but only 500 of these vehicles were made, and they did not take off in the Nascar circuit as anticipated. Another model that was introduced for Nascar fans was the Charger Daytona, where Dodge attempted to make improved aerodynamic features, to reduce noise that the 500 had, and to make for a smoother drive on the track. It came standard with a 440 magnum engine, and 375 HP.
