Chrysler is planning a big bash to commemorate the production of the 25,000th Dodge Viper at its Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit, MI. The event, due to take place tomorrow, will celebrate the big snake's penchant for simultaneously thrilling and scaring the pants off enthusiasts for over a decade and a half. Number 25,000 will be handed over to Kurt Busch in recognition of his wheel-to-wheel accomplishments while campaigning in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, and while we won't be on hand for the festivities, we'll be there in spirit, without the banned articles of clothing outlined in the press release after the jump.
