Follow A Dream Racing– Maple Grove Raceway

Marstons Mills, MA -October 3, 2013-Jay Blake’s Permatex/Follow A Dream team heads to Maple Grove Raceway in eastern Pennsylvania this weekend for the final event of the 2013 season, the Auto-Plus NHRA Nationals. “It’s my favorite race every year because it’s where, 15 years ago, I made the decision to start my own team,” Blake said. “Maple Grove is always sentimental for me but especially this year because this is the last time we’ll run this car before we bring out a brand-new one in 2014.”
Maple Grove also is the track where the Permatex/Follow A Dream team made its quickest and fastest run of the season – 5.56 at 259 mph at the Lucas Oil Series event in May – and where driver Todd Veney twice established career bests, at this event in 2010 (5.549) and 2011 (5.548).
“Maple Grove can be really fast, and with one more good outing we can lock down another top 10 finish,” he said. The team currently is ranked eighth in the national standings, with one victory, three final-round appearances, and 464 points – the exact same total it finished with last year.
