Marstons Mills, MA -July 17, 2014-Fresh off a semifinal finish at the Summit Nationals at Norwalk, Jay Blake’s Permatex/Follow A Dream Top Alcohol Funny Car team has a home game this weekend at the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Eastern Regional at New England Dragway.
“It’s always great to run at our home track,” said Blake, whose team is based a couple hours away in Marstons Mills, Mass., on Cape Cod. “Tuner Tommy Howell has a couple things he wants to try, so we’re going to test on Thursday, and the weather looks great for whole weekend.”
Driver Todd Veney was runner-up at this event in 2011, the first year that the track returned to NHRA sanction, and reached the semifinals there last year. “Every year we’ve run this race, we’ve gotten knocked out by Frank Manzo – in the final in 2011, the first round in 2012, and the semifinals last year – and he’s not racing anymore, so who knows?” said Veney, who currently is ranked eighth in the national standings.
