Welcome to the Viper Owners Association, the premiere car club for owners who are passionate about their Dodge/SRT Vipers. Our goal is simply to help Viper owners have a more enjoyable ownership experience by providing a community environment to share Viper passion with other owners. Join us and live life at redline!

Worldwide! The Largest Viper Club In Existence

In 2013, SRT launched the new Gen V Viper, and in 2014, we launched a new club for all Viper owners. We've taken the lessons we've learned from the past 20 years and started fresh to build the best car club on the planet. In our first year, we built a club with 37 regions around the world (check out our map at http://driveviper.com/images/voa-regions-map.png), club member services, published a world-class magazine on a quarterly basis, built a website and forums, held our first national event, provided significant discounts for members, and more! Our club is efficient, member-driven, and regionally-focused and puts fun in your club experience. We have established a strong relationship with our manufacturer and are on our way to making this the PREMIER Viper club. Our commitment is from the top down - as we have the most experienced and dedicated club leaders around.

Join us and you'll receive our high-quality, quarterly magazine with the latest Viper news, stunning photography and regional club updates, membership badges, access to local and national events, website/forum access, free goodies, liability insurance coverage at our events, manufacturer access, and best of all, the camaraderie of fellow Viper owners.

Welcome to the new VOA! Get involved, enjoy, and be proud of your club!

For those who aren't aware, Florida is open for business and ready to welcome us for our big event! A word of warning to those who are already registered: you must renew for 2021 to be able to attend because our rules are you must be a current member of the VOA so here's yet another reason to renew your membership! We'll also have some very important news coming out in the near future that we think will be very helpful to every single member of the VOA!

NVE4 Breaking News

As we all know, the United States and the world is experiencing an unprecedented period of "social distancing' and, of course, Viper Owners are not immune. The VOA has moved deliberately, carefully, and strategically to balance the needs of the club, its members and the greater community. Rapid developments over the last several days in Federal, State and Local governmental guidance has made a large gathering of people traveling from all our regions impossible for late-April. Because we have been working behind the scenes with an eye toward risk for our members and club for several weeks we can now present the total picture.

NVE4 in Miami & the Keys, florida has been rescheduled to next year: April 28 to May 1, 2021

The host hotel and track have agreed to this change with no cancellation penalties or change fees!
Some of the smaller venues and activities will be able to provide refunds or carry-ver payments to next year as well.

We are thrilled to be able to present a clean solution to this unprecedented sticky situation with no detrimental impact to the members or the club. If you have any questions about registration please reach out to your region president. Speaking of registration, we'll be opening it in the fall so be sure to book your vacay so you can join us at the biggest Viper party on the planet!

We look forward to getting through the current situation and we wish all of you and your families a safe and healthful next several months.

Welcome to our new Regional Development Director

As an active member of the Northern California VOA region he has organized numerous club events including race days and distillery tours. Most recently he assisted Alex Ristanovic organize the Red Rock Canyon and Hoover Dam tours for NVE3. He has written for the NorCal club newsletter, Snake Eyes, and assisted the local club leadership recraft their by-laws. He's married with 3 grown kids who don't remember a time when their dad did not have a snake in the garage! He's ready to serve the club at the national level based on his 20 years of club membership. To him, the greatest benefit of being a part of the VOA has been the people he has met and the shared memories. He is uniquely prepared to work with regional chapters throughout the country to help strengthen them as a result of his varied experiences with the VOA.

NVE4 Revealed



The VOA is always way ahead of the curve, planning NVE's nearly 3 years in advance. NVE4 planning has been underway and kept a tightly guarded secret, until it was revealed at the very end of NVE3 at the grand finale dinner! A special reveal video was shown that slowly teases and reveals the location of the next NVE. As the video concluded, a load roar came from the crowd as they say the next location - "Miami & the Keys"!! Click here to watch the reveal video.

NVE3 Was a Massive Success



Jackpot! The VOA hosted a full house of Viper owners in Las Vegas, May 2-5, 2018! As the largest Viper gathering in the world, the National Viper Event (NVE) happens every two years in a different location, and this year's event took place in Sin City! With the event selling out in less than two weeks, over 800 attendees enjoyed the sights, sounds, and thrills that are Las Vegas. The festivities started off with a stunning outdoor private beach party at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. The following day, several hundred Vipers headed out to Red Rock Canyon National Park for a cool breathtaking cruise. The group then spent a very special afternoon at Casa de Shenandoah – Wayne Newton’s own estate! At his estate, we had access to his classic car collection, mansion, exotic animal sanctuary, his boyhood home, Arabian horse stables, and even his private jet! Guests received another little NVE gift from the club, specially made mobile phone chargers branded with the event and club name. We also enjoyed wonderful lunch and music on his front lawn and gathered together for a group photo in front of his mansion to commemorate the event. The next 2 days were spent doing coordinated tours of Hoover dam and having track days at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This was one of the best track day experiences ever, it included the road course, high speed oval, and autocross! To wrap up NVE3, the Grand Finale Banquet was held Saturday evening where guests were treated to a fantastic cocktail hour which was then followed by a memorable night that included dinner, music, live auction, several guest speakers (including Ralph Gilles). Another little surprise, everyone received a deck of custom made VOA playing cards and one lucky guest at each table walked away with an awesome NVE3 LED animated centerpiece. And at the very end, the location of the next NVE was revealed... Guests were truly in awe of this event, you could tell it exceeded expectations. All plans and details were in place, there wasn't a single major incident, weather was great, and people had a great time. Thank you to all of the over 70+ volunteers and helpers that made this event wonderful, and to Alex Ristanovic, who spearheaded this lavish event. The memories of this event will last forever, Vegas will never be the same again!
