Dodge Sponsoring Roadkill Nights at Michigan’s Silverdome
Dodge is taking over the Silverdome—its parking lot, that is. The American carmaker is sponsoring Roadkill Nights “Powered by Dodge,” a free, pop-up festival that allows racing enthusiasts to race each other in their own cars. This festival will come just before the 2015 Woodward Dream Cruise, making it a terrific start to a fun weekend.
