Yesterday, we brought you the news of the first 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat to run in the 9-second range and today, we bring you news of the new quarter mile record holder for the factory-supercharged SUV. Jeremy Satera, who was the first to put the Hellcat Durango in the 10s, hit the track the day after the 9-second barrier had been broken by Scott Boegler and while there, the Satera Tuned Dodge SUV ran its own 9-second run while claiming the record for the all-wheel-drive Hellcat.
