Dodge announces it is exiting NASCAR [video]

[UPDATE] Dodge has released a video announcement added above.

Dodge has been a fixture on the NASCAR circuit for over a decade, but a recent report is indicating the company is calling it quits.

Automotive News says Dodge will exit the popular racing series in 2013. This is a little surprising since the company unveiled their 2013 Charger for the Sprint Cup Series back in March. However, Penske Racing announced plans to switch to Ford and Dodge recently pulled out of a two-day tire test for 2013 vehicles.

These are just rumors at the moment, but SRT CEO Ralph Gilles will be hosting a conference call later today. This has spawned speculation that Dodge's exit could pave the way for an SRT successor, but we should find out soon enough.
