Follow A Dream Heads to U. S. Nationals

Jay Blake’s Permatex/Follow A Dream Top Alcohol Funny Car team is already in Indianapolis for the biggest race of the season, the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals. “This is a huge weekend for us, and it’s even bigger this year because the race is sponsored by Chevrolet Performance,” said Blake, whose car is the first 5th Generation Camaro Funny Car in drag racing. “We’ve gone over every part of this car, and everything’s in place for a great weekend.”
“It’s not just the biggest race of the year, it’s my favorite race of the year,” said driver Todd Veney, who lives in Indianapolis, just five miles from Lucas Oil Raceway. “We got to the semi’s here a couple years ago, and a win here would be the best thing ever.”
Qualifying begins Friday with afternoon sessions at 1 and 4. There’s one run Saturday at 12:15, and last-ditch qualifying is set for Sunday morning at 9:15. The first round is that evening at 5, and final eliminations are to be completed on Labor Day.
