Jay Blake’s Permatex/Follow A Dream Top Alcohol Funny Car team heads to vaunted Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, N.J., for the final stop on the 2011 Division 1 Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series. Last year, driver Todd Veney ran a best of 5.58 en route to a final-round appearance against Frank Manzo.
“It’ll be great for everybody on the team to get back to a racetrack – especially after our last two outings,” Blake said. “We’re all anxious to keep our spot in the top five in the national points standings.” Inactive since mid-August, the team dropped from third to fifth in the rankings.
“It’s time to get back into the 5.50s and time to get back into another final round,” Veney said. “Englishtown has always been one of my favorite tracks in the country, and we did well at both races there last year.”
