Follow A Dream–Virginia Motorsports Park

Marstons Mills, MA -April 3, 2014-Jay Blake’s Permatex/Follow A Dream Top Alcohol Funny Car team begins its 2014 regional schedule this weekend at Virginia Motorsports Park in Richmond, Va., where two years ago driver Todd Veney qualified No. 1, set low e.t. and top speed, and won the race.
At the first race of the season, three weeks ago in the debut of an all-new Murf McKinney-built Chevy Monte Carlo at the Gatornationals in Gainesville, Fla., the team ran nothing but 5.50s. All four runs were better than any run Veney made all last year, when the team finished ninth in the national standings.
“I think we have a hot rod that can win some races,” Blake said. “The car showed promise in testing, and it really performed down in Florida. We have a good track record in Virginia, everybody on the team is ready to go, and we’re looking forward to a great race this weekend.”
Two qualifying sessions are set for Friday, at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Eliminations kick off at 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon and wrap up with an under-the-lights final at 7 p.m.
