Check engine light with hard driving

Hey everyone I'm new to the forum. I've had my SRT for a couple of years now and I've noticed on several occasions when I'm driving with particular gusto, my check engine light always comes on. It's usually after 4-5 full throttle runs. It seems to stay on until I have stopped and restarted the car several times. usually over the course of a day or two. I haven't had the chance to take it to the dealership, and when I have, it wasn't on for them to find a code or anything. Anyone else had this problem and figure out what it was?

You'll want to read the code when it comes back. It could be anything from a speed sensor to a loss of communication with the transmission due to a bad connection.

There's no accurate way to diagnose this without the code.

Maybe the "slow the F down" light?
