Dina Parise and her husband Andrew are originally from New York, but now reside in Georgia. “We are happy to make the (800-mile) trip for this event.” Said Dina Parise “Getting to thank our Military Members in person is what it’s all about.”

With the assistance of their marketing partners as well as other sources, the DPR team is proud to have obtained various items to fill 200 ‘Gift Bags’ to pass on to our Military Members. Just a small token of appreciation for the sacrifice they make. “Everyone we reached out to was more than happy to donate items.” Said Parise. “This is something we would like to continue in the future, and expand.”

DPR will be appearing on Pier 86 at the Intrepid Museum, from May 27th – 29th (10am-6pm all days). Pier 86 is filled with interactive displays, hands-on learning opportunities, performances and more!

It is an opportunity for not only the of people of New York and the surrounding tri-state area, but tourists as well, to meet Marines, Coast Guardsmen and Sailors.

“Between the last appearance (in 2012) and now, the team has evolved quite a bit, and we have gone through many changes.” Said Dina Parise. “My husband Andrew no longer drives, he is now solely my crew chief. We have sold off the Corvettes and now have Stella. We won the IHRA World championship with her in her debut year in 2015. The one constant is our support of the US Military, its members and their families. We consider ourselves lucky to do what we do. Fact of the matter is, it is a constant reminder that Freedom is not free. We take every chance we get to say thank you and show our appreciation to them for the sacrifice they have made for us. It’s the least we can do.”

R.I.P.~Bella Booda Parise

Since she was 11 weeks old, she has been a huge part of DPR as well as a fan favorite.

We know she will be missed by all………bella-flight                                                                                       Bella Booda Parise

Dina Parise Racing Brake-Fest Charity Show Appearance

For Dina Parise Racing events do not always occur on the track. As a matter of fact, it seems some of the most important and engaging events occur while sitting still. That would be the case with the most recent event the team participated in.

The Brake-Fest Charity Car Show presented by Master Power Brakes was held recently in Mooresville, NC. The DPR team attended (of course along with Stella the 3,000HP Cadillac) as a special guest of the event to benefit the Martin Truex Jr Foundation and Classroom Central.

“Events such as this are probably my favorite!” Said Dina Parise “Although we are busy, we are a bit more relaxed, so we really get to chat with people. Not to mention, we are raising donations and awareness for two great charities. It’s a win, win for sure!”

Although Stella (the Cadillac Pro Mod) was for showin’ not goin’ this time out, the team did treat the crowd to the sound of 3,000HP firing up! “We really made it as if we were in our pit area at the race track.” Said Parise. “What a great way for those not familiar with our sport to feel the excitement! We want them to understand how accessible we are as racers, and how one on one our sport is. That truly is the beauty of our sport of drag racing.”

Stella may not have moved at all during Brake-Fest but that is not to say there was no ‘racing’ happening on the property. It seems Parise ‘called out’ two time NASCAR Champion Todd Bodine (Team Onion), challenging him to a race in the uRace Simway Virtual Racing Experience racing simulator. Parise did edge out Bodine to win the race. Will there be a rematch? That remains to be seen.

Another great addition to the DPR team ‘pit area’ was having Sub Zero Ice Cream & Yogurt on hand to give out free samples! They actually make fresh frozen treats right in front of your eyes! Did you know Sub Zero not only offers a wide variety of frozen desserts, they also offer many off-site programs as well! From educational programs to catering, you can find it at Sub Zero! (https://www.subzeroicecream.com/ )

The DPR team is now in the re-grouping phase and prepping for the 2017 season. “At the moment, we are breaking Stella down and giving her an overhaul.” Said Andrew Parise. “At the end of the season, I like to really take a look at the car and inspect every inch of it. Then we can prepare to begin again.”

The DPR team continues to push the envelope in every way. From performance to detail this team acknowledges and does it all. Stella sparkles and looks great because of the products provided by Eastwood and CRC Auto (ChemFree Smartwasher). She runs well and safely with products from as NGK, Lucas Oil, Speedwire Systems, Hussey Performance, Hoosier Racing Tire and Motorsports Unlimited. The DPR website looks great and runs efficiently thanks to the professionals at Crank It Media.

The Brake-Fest Car Show presented by Master Power Brakes is no ordinary Car Show. Brake-Fest is a Car Show benefiting both Classroom Central and the Martin Truex Jr Foundation.

“We love getting to do events like this.” Stated Parise. “The core of this DPR team has always been connecting with not only the fans but giving back to the community.” Parise is referring to not only having Stella (the 3,000HP Pro Mod Cadillac) on display for the fans to see, she is also referring to the initiative the team has taken to assist Classroom Central in collecting School supplies for needy children. “My father was an educator in New York.” Stated Parise. “Harlem to be exact. I understand the plight of those in need of the bare essentials. Andrew and I also spearheaded a collection of School Supplies post ‘Superstorm Sandy’ for hard hit communities on Long Island. Education is key. Everyone deserves a good education and needs the proper tools to obtain one. We will do our best to try to help them along.”

How you can help: When coming to the show, be sure to bring along one (or more) of the School Supply items (listed below). Head to the Dina Parise Racing display where you will find a Classroom Central bin and drop the item(s) in! The student that receive the supplies thank you! Be sure to get a Dina Parise signed autograph card as a thank you! After you have made your donation, met the DPR team, taken a look at Stella, as a special treat, you can stop and get your free sample of Sub Zero Ice Cream too! Looking to make your next event even more memorable? Let Sub Zero Ice Cream and Yogurt cater your event. They will provide a culinary experience your guests will never forget. Their event catering takes care of the set up and clean up, so you can enjoy your party without worrying about feeding your guests. Be sure to ask for information at the Sub Zero Ice Cream display located along with DPR!

She will be taking photos and signing autographs through-out the day as well as firing-up her 3000HP Pro-Mod to let all the NASCAR shops in the area know what REAL horsepower sounds like!” Now, we don’t know about you, but that sounds like fighting words!

If you are headed to the Brake-Fest Care Show, be sure to bring the family! There will be lots to do! The Car Show is just a start! There will be; a silent auction, a 50/50 raffle, door prizes, racing simulators, multiple race car start-ups and much more!

Dina Parise Racing races to support injured Virginia girl with Unique Fundraiser

You must be the change you wish to see in the world. ~Mahatma Gandhi

In the blink of an eye. The equivalent of 1/3 of a second of precious time. It is a testament of how quickly life can change. As racers, the Dina Parise Racing team can certainly attest to that, but accidents happen in everyday life just the same. Lives become disrupted as in the case of 20-year-old Katy Daniel.

In an instant

Her story: On Mother’s Day 2016 Katy was involved in a horrific, life altering accident. She was working on fence to be installed for her horse, Ginger by helping her uncle with an auger attached to his tractor to dig holes for the pasture posts. Katy’s hair became entangled within the rotary shaft of the operating auger; resulting in total scalping of Katy’s head, the loss of her forehead, one eyebrow and both ears.Katy Daniel

Katy was taken by Medevac that tragic day to MCV/VCU Critical Care Hospital in Richmond, Virginia where she remained hospitalized for two months, due to her injuries. She has undergone five surgeries thus far to reconstruct the cranium; the longest being sixteen hours in length. Katy has many more surgeries and years of reconstruction ahead of her. Due to the in depth trauma and loss specific anatomy, Katy will most likely be traveling throughout the United States for specialty care.Katy Daniel 2

Katy lives in Dinwiddie County Virginia with her identical twin Taylor, and her parents Russell and Melissa Daniel. “Katy has been an Inspiration and Warrior during this trying time, given the life changing trials she faces daily.” Said Melissa Daniel “She continues on through doubt’s and failures, most of the time with a smile. Though its painful, she gives all the determination and courage within her. She starts every day with a new hope, and has Faith for better days ahead.”

As many of you may know, Dinwiddie is well known for many things; among them Virginia Motorsports Park. The Dina Parise Racing team has, for many years, considered VMP and Dinwiddie a ‘second home’. “We have been going to VMP for so long, we consider everyone one there family to us.” Said Dina Parise “We met our crewmember Butch in 2009 when he worked the staging lanes. He is now part of our family and our ‘go to’ guy.”

When the Parise’s became aware of Katy’s situation they felt they needed to get involved. “We feel as if it is our community.” Said Parise. Not wanting to invade the privacy of the family, Parise called longtime friend and WTVR CBS 6 Reporter, Wayne Covil who had been covering Katy’s story exclusively. He assisted Parise in beginning the process of getting the fundraiser off the ground.

The Fundraiser: For those of you familiar with DPR you are aware the team is no stranger to the charity/fundraising world! This fundraiser for Katy is no ordinary fundraiser! Katy’s spirits will be lifted by of course donations being made, but along with each donation a #KATYSTRONG decal will be placed on Stella (the Cadillac) to show support. This will coincide with Dina Parise competing in the Xtreme Pro Mod category, driving her famed Cadillac ‘Stella’, at the NMCA Super Bowl at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, IL. July 29-31.

Dina Parise Racing NMCA All American Nationals Recap

‘The heat is on!’ That was certainly the term for the NMCA All American Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway this past weekend. With temperatures well into the 90 degree range and a track temperature of 140 degrees, you could fry Meatballs on the starting line! Temperature aside, the racing and track conditions were phenomenal!

This was the first of the three race deal for Dina Parise Racing and Aerospace Components. The team did not only represent Aerospace on the track, they were a fixture on the manufacturer’s midway as well. “What an exciting way to spend a race weekend!” Said Dina Parise “We were honored that Aerospace and NMCA wanted DPR as representatives on the midway. We had a blast with the fans! We are looking forward to doing it again in Joliet and Norwalk.”

For DPR this 2016 season has been a bit of a struggle, yet it seems things are finally beginning to turn a corner. “Although we were certainly not the fastest this weekend,” Said Andrew Parise “We were consistent. Stella went A to B on all but one pass and she was straight as an arrow. Seems we have found the issues and we can improve from here. I’m happy with that. Now my wife will get off my case.” He laughs.

The team qualified #10 in a 16 car field. In 1st Round Parise ran Richard Holt. Parise ran a 4.120 to Holt’s 4.108 but won the round due to Holt fouling out. Parise then took on Randy Adler in round 2. Adler won the round with a 4.027 over Parise’s 4.157. “All in all, I’m happy with our performance” Said (Andrew) Parise “We went down in the heat. We didn’t break anything. Hallelujah, as I said, the wife is off my case. Somewhat!”

“I cannot thank my team enough!” Said (Dina) Parise “My husband Andrew and Butch worked their tails off this weekend. They always do. Work hard and laugh harder. It’s what keeps us sane, successful and from killing each other!” She laughs.

A bit of a fun side note. Parise is meeting some of her fellow drivers for the first time here at NMCA. Case in point, Richard Holt who hails from Texas. Prior to running 1st round Parise and Holt had a conversation in the staging lanes, to which Holt explained he has given her a nickname. Holt was asked by other drivers who he was running in the 1st round. His answer? “Oh, I have ‘Tiny Dancer’!”. He proceeded to explain this to Parise and informed her this was now how he would (affectionately) refer to her. Seemingly it is sticking, the name was heard quite a bit throughout the pits (and on social Media) for the remainder of the weekend!

The team wants to thank and recognize the NMCA organization for the spot on track prep they maintained throughout the weekend. They also would like to recognize Bangshift.com for the live feed coverage of the race. A top notch job done by all.

The next race on the DPR schedule is the NMCA Super Bowl at Route 66 Raceway, July 28-31. Once again Bangshift.com will be airing their live feed all weekend long. Don’t forget DPR also has a live pit cam as well, featuring a ‘birds eye view’ of the pit and all that goes on! You can find the pit cam on the team’s website http://dinapariseracing.com/ throughout the race weekend.

The DPR team continues to push the envelope in every way. From performance to detail this team acknowledges and does it all. Stella sparkles and looks great because of the products provided by Eastwood and CRC Auto (including the new Smart Washer). She runs well and safely with products from as NGK, Lucas Oil, Speedwire Systems, Hussey Performance, Hoosier and Motorsports Unlimited. The DPR website looks great and runs efficiently thanks to the professionals at Crank It Media. DPR gets where they need to go with assistance from Aerospace Components.

The team encourages you to try the products and services these companies offer. The fact remains that they do use them all. That is the best recommendation!

Dina Parise Racing at NMCA All American Nationals with a twist!

When opportunity knocks you had better be there to answer! As recently announced, Dina Parise Racing signed a three race deal with Aerospace Components. This partnership is well rounded package.

Dina Parise Racing Welcomes Aerospace Components

 

They say everything happens for a reason. In the Dina Parise Racing camp, they have become believers in this statement. This team has learned that some days may be tougher than others, but they are just preparation for things to come.

And come they do. Recently DPR reached a sponsorship agreement with the Florida-based company, which will see Parise and her team competing in the remaining NMCA events; racing in the highly competitive VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod class.

“When Kim (Kussy) and I first met” Said Dina Parise “We hit it off. Two hard working women in this amazing industry both loving every minute of it. What’s not to like, right?”

The DPR team has a rich history in working with our Nation’s veteran population and military members in general. Some events many may have known about but there were quite a few that just never surfaced. It was for the veterans, not for the team. “I have always said it’s not about getting to the stripe first” Said Parise “But the journey you take to get there”. Aerospace Components started out doing Government contract jobs, and are a Mil certified shop. The company has been hiring veterans for the past 20 years.

Aerospace Components is quite supportive in the Drag Racing industry. They pay contingency on 5 products (all classes, all series with Promedia. For the last 5 years ): Brakes, ( Must have Front and Rear) Vacuum Pump,Water Pump, Fuel Pump and Shifter. They also support the racers with awesome programs like the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle for all events in all series NMCA, NMCA West and NMRA with Promedia. That is just part of what they do!

Much like DPR, Aerospace Components has a huge presence and following on social media and they share the success of the racers and their racing career. Don’t miss the innovative with new videos of “Kimmy’s Garage”! Learn how it’s made or how to install their products. They believe in educating and engaging customers and future customers about their products.

Both DPR and Aerospace Components are looking forward to this new partnership, and showing you the great products they have to offer all MADE IN THE USA!
