Follow A Dream Racing–Heading to zMax

Jay Blake’s Permatex/Follow A Dream Top Alcohol Funny Car team heads back to the most luxurious drag strip in the world, zMax Dragway in suburban Charlotte, where this spring the team reached the semifinals at the 4-Wide Nationals, for this weekend’s NHRA Nationals.
“Charlotte is as good a place as any to get back on track,” Blake said. “I don’t know what more you could ask for from a race track. The whole place is just unbelievable.”
“It’s got to be the nicest track I’ve ever raced on,” said driver Todd Veney. “We made our quickest and fastest run ever there [5.52 at 262.64 mph], and that was two and a half years ago with a much heavier car, so hopefully we can get right back in that range this weekend.”
Qualifying sessions are scheduled for 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday. The final session will be Saturday morning at 11, followed that afternoon by the first round of eliminations. Final eliminations kick off at noon Sunday.
