Can you CTS-V me now?

Growing up on Long Island, New York in an Italian family always had its advantages. There was the fact that a ‘rite of passage’ as a young woman in an Italian family was learning how to ‘perfect’ the family recipe for Gravy. Yes, Gravy. In Dina Parise’s  (of Dina Parise Racing) house  growing up (and still today) if it’s red and has Meatballs, Pork Neck bones and Braciole … it’s Gravy! Veering from food, let us not forget about the ‘built in’ Body Guards of sorts; Dina’s three brothers. Dina being the youngest in an Italian family and the only girl led to many a scuffle and shall we say, dateless night. “Italian ‘Princess’ was a statement often used but misunderstood by many in my case.” Stated Dina Parise with a smile. “I was not the type to be a princess in a standoffish kind of way; I was merely a victim of overbearing brotherly love and protection. Once a ‘date’ found out who my brothers were, he usually had ‘other plans that did not include me!” She laughs.

Italians are a very distinct bunch. Proud of their heritage and sometimes it seems more proud of the food they create. One thing stands out about Italians (especially) in New York; many times you can pick them (Italians) out by the car they drive. For those of you not from the New York area this may seem strange, but it’s true! This takes us to the nitty gritty of this story.

Dina Parise Racing is proud to announce the build of a new Cadillac CTS-V by Matheis Race Cars Inc to debut in the 2014 season!  “We are very excited about building a new Pro Mod for DPR.” Stated  Rob Matheis. “We have been fans of DPR for a long time and can hardly wait to see Dina behind the wheel and winning races with a MRC built CTS-V!”

“We are excited to be working with Rob and the MRC team!” Stated Dina. “This is a sharp looking car and it will be built by MRC! What more could we ask for?”

So stay tuned for future updates regarding the new CTS-V Pro Mod and the upcoming 2014 season!

From our DPR family to yours we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year!

Dina Parise Racing Headed to Nassau County Cruise to the Show!

Dina Parise Racing (DPR) will be heading to the Nassau County Cruise to the Show this September 28th and 29th not only for an appearance but as an event partner as well! For anyone who knows this Long Island based Pro Modified Drag Racing team, an appearance is never an appearance without a good cause to support!  As many of you already know, this Dina Parise Racing team has always honored Veterans and Members of the Armed Forces with their two beautiful Pro Mod Corvettes. The tradition of honoring Veterans is what keeps DPR grounded as a team. This tradition continues as the team heads to the Nassau County Cruise to the Show. Only this time it will not be just a ‘team effort’. The fans will have an opportunity to not only honor Veterans, but to become a part of DPR history all while supporting Indy Honor Flight.

“I am a determined competitor on the track. “ Stated Dina Parise. “Off the track I am determined that this DPR team cam make a difference. It is my belief that everything we do melds together quite well. From representing our Marketing Partners to raising donations for an amazing cause such as Indy Honor Flight, we are always moving in a positive direction!”

DPR is proud to announce the continuation of the ‘Stop Write Here’ Project! Fans will have the opportunity to sign their name (and take a photo of it) on the unpainted nose of Dina’s ‘63 Corvette and help support an amazing organization all at the same time! As fans arrive at the Nassau County Cruise to the Show to view (all of the amazing cars as well as) the DPR Pro Mods, they can then: Grab a sharpie to sign the DPR Corvette and take a photo! DPR will only ask that they make a donation to Indy Honor Flight in exchange for the signature and photo. DPR wants fans as well as fellow car enthusiasts to take part in this amazing project to benefit the Honor Flight Network! If you are a fan walking through the show, a fellow car enthusiast or even a vendor be sure to stop by DPR participate! The team will continue this project until the nose goes in for paint! The DPR team and its fans has already raised enough to send 2 two Veterans on an Honor Flight! Let’s see how many more well deserving Veterans we can assist!
