Follow A Dream Readies for Gainesville

Permatex/Follow A Dream team makes its 2013 national event debut this
weekend at the Gatornationals in Gainesville, where last month the team
reached the semifinals at the East Region Lucas Oil Series opener. “We
started this year a month earlier than
usual, but it’s great to be back with Permatex and back with every
member of the team from last year,” Blake said. “We’ve got the same car
and the same team but a lot of new stuff, and we’ve got big plans for
the season.”
Driver Todd Veney ran a 5.59 off the trailer at Gainesville in
February, tying for low e.t. of
the event. He defeated John Headley in round one and lost to eventual
winner Dan Pomponio in the semifinals. The Permatex/Follow A Dream team
won the 2006 Gatornationals and reached the semifinals in 2010 and the
quarterfinals in each of the past two years.
nice to head to Gainesville this year knowing that it’s not the first
outing of the
year,” Veney said. “Everybody already has a race behind them, and after
watching the guys swap in a new engine before the semi’s like it was
nothing, I’d say they’re in midseason form.”
