Jay Blake’s Permatex/Follow A Dream team heads to Summit Raceway Park in Norwalk, Ohio this weekend for the Summit Racing Equipment Nationals, the first event in a back-to-back-to-back stretch of races that kicks off the second half of the season.
“It’s a home track for me and one of my favorite races of the season,” said driver Todd Veney, who reached the semifinals of this race last year before being knocked out by an ignition glitch. “We ran pretty good at Norwalk last year, and it really got us started on a great second half of our season.”
“We’ll be on the road for three straight weeks,” said Blake, the team owner and crew chief, who, with Eddie Parker driving the rig, will head straight from Ohio to a Lucas Oil Series Divisional event Lebanon Valley, N.Y., where last year the team won, and from there back to Route 66 Raceway just outside Chicago for the Route 66 Nationals and the JEGS Allstars race. “These back-to-back-to-back races take a lot of dedication from the crew, but racing so much in such a short period of time is a great way for all of us to stay in the groove.”
