Dina Parise Racing joins forces with Quain Stott !

‘Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.’ John F. Kennedy.
Many tend to confuse change with unhappiness. That is not always necessarily the case. In many instances progression is what prompts change. The want to succeed and the need for progression are the catalyst for change. Therefore change is good.
Change for the Dina Parise Racing comes in the form of the addition of Quain Stott to the team. For those of you not familiar with Quain and his accomplishments, where have you been? Please come out from the rock you have been residing under and read on!
The term ‘run what ‘cha brung’ certainly was a motto for Quain in its purest sense. His dedication to this sport led him to be a: 13 time National Event winner, 14 consecutive IHRA Pro Modified Top 10 finishes (many in the top 5), and 2006 IHRA Pro Modified World Champion. He was voted #11 on Competition Plus’ Pro Mod All-Time Top 20 Drivers list. If you ask Quain what accomplishment he is most proud of, he will tell you it was being named Car Craft Magazine 2001 All-Star Driver of the year. Not his favorite because he was named driver of the year but his favorite due to the fact that this recognition came from the fans. They voted for him and that speaks volumes.
“I am honored to have Quain as a part of our team! “ Stated Dina Parise. “We work well together, and he believes in our program. Besides, it’s nice to have a buffer between Andrew and myself. He tends to try to drive the car for me.” She laughs.
With change comes letting go as well. Within this process the DPR team has parted ways with long time Crew Chief Dave Jordan. Again, do not confuse change with unhappiness. Dave has moved on to pursue new opportunities and expand on his own business. “Dave was an integral part of this DPR team for many years. We thank him and wish him nothing but the best!” Stated Andrew Parise. “We have a lot of history together. His part in this team will not be forgotten.”
Although it is late in the season, this change is coming at a pivotal time for DPR. Dina Parise is currently 6 points behind Ruben Tetsoshvili in the IHRA Nitro Jam Crower Pro Mod Series yet only 100 points separates the top 5 drivers. As it stands there are three full races left and Parise has yet to run her Semi-Final round against Chuck Mohn ; the continuation of the IHRA Maryland International Raceway Presidents Cup race that was rained out after round one of eliminations where Parise took out points leader Tetsoshvili. (http://dinapariseracing.com/dina-parise-leaves-ihra-presidents-cup-on-a-high-note  )
“Admittedly it has been a long bumpy, frustrating road.” Stated Dina Parise. “We have had a bit of ‘new Cadillac blues’ and have had some nutty issues. But we are fighters and we refuse to give up. We are a family team. We have worked hard to get where we are. Blood, sweat, tears and yes meatballs! Life gives you lemons…. Toss them aside and make Gravy and Ravioli! I cannot thank my husband Andrew enough for all he does. He’s a one man band. But he gets it done. It’s a labor of love on all accounts. Ya it’s sappy but true. If you tell him I said it, I will deny, deny, deny! ” She smiles
The DPR team continues to push the envelope in every way. From performance to detail this team acknowledges and does it all. Stella sparkles because of the products provided by USA Auto Supply and CRC Auto. She runs well and safely due to products such as DJ Safety, NGK, Speedwire Systems, Hoosier, Motorsports Unlimited and LAT Racing Oils. The DPR website looks great and runs efficiently thanks to the professionals at Crank It Media .A special thank you to ‘Uncle Mel’s Mystery Appitizers’. Please visit http://dinapariseracing.com/marketing-partners  . There you will find more information regarding the companies listed.

Dina Parise leaves IHRA Presidents Cup on a High Note

 

For those who have been following the Pro Mod career of Dina Parise, you are most likely well aware of her ‘relationship’ with Maryland International Raceway. Beginning in the days back when Dina Parise Racing was a two car husband and wife Pro Mod team leading to now, there is a rich history both good and miserably bad at MDIR. For Dina, the last time she left there it was on bad terms. She was determined to change that and for all intents and purposes, she did. Although the events leading into the race week made it seem as if her history may have been setting a precedent for her upcoming week.

This DPR team is no stranger to adversity as of late. Seemingly, someone has not been owning up to the fact that they are giving food and water to the ‘Gremlins’ after midnight and yes for a moment they took control. Picture it if you will. Arriving home early on a Monday morning fresh off a testing session with Stella the Cadillac Pro Mod. No ‘crew’ on hand at this point. It was just Andrew and Dina ready to unload (the trailer contents) in order to get maintenance and prep done to head to MDIR on Wednesday evening (for IHRA Presidents cup Crower Pro Mod). Do not forget the ‘regular’ shop work being accomplished as well. When lo and behold, the lift gate fails to work. And with no manual override, all of the contents were captive in their enclosure. Stella became a hostage in her own environment. The fix? Drive the rig the Renegade/Kibbi in Indianapolis immediately. So Andrew did.

None of this was in the ‘plan’, but in the scheme of things it could always be worse, right? In the end, the team made it to the track race ready. Sort of. “Well, we arrived.” Stated Andrew Parise. “Next step was to give Stella some air and get her ready. Poor girl was cooped up in that trailer in need of some TLC. It was a nutty week. Only us!” He laughs.

The team went up for the first qualifier on Friday and had to back out at the line due to an oil pressure issue that plagued them all weekend. The second qualifier was called due to rain. The third and final qualifier left Dina in the 6th spot with a 6.416 @ 196.64. She would face Ruben Tetsoshvili in round 1 of eliminations. It would be a re-run of the Cordova final! With Ruben having won Cordova and being the point’s leader, Dina was feeling the pressure. Compounding that, the team was battling an oil pressure issue with Stella and she was just not running up to par.

Ruben had a slight advantage at the tree with a .114 over Dina’s .173 light. Dina had the advantage rest of the way. She got the win light. A round win, taking out the point’s leader and gaining peace mind. Both she and her team needed, worked hard for and wanted this and they achieved it. To many this may seem a minor accomplishment, to DPR it was moving a mountain. “Coming into this IHRA Presidents Cup weekend I had a lot to prove.” Stated Dina Parise. “A lot to prove to myself. I needed to know I was not letting anything negative rent space in my brain. I actually do love this facility. It’s a great place to race. From the track surface to the fans. I love it. But in the last couple of outings, we did not see eye to eye. I needed to change that. We were not the fastest this weekend, but I slayed the dragon all while taking out the points leader! My team rocked it out. Thank you to Andrew, Butch, Charlie(AKA Uncle Mel), Jody and Toni! Change is good! I’m a happy girl!”

Unfortunately, the remainder event was cancelled (due to inclement weather) and will conclude at the Northern Nationals at U.S. 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, Michigan on August 7 – 8. The DPR team will be there to finish off the final elimination rounds! This coming week the IHRA nitro Jam Mopar Nationals will be at Grand Bend Motorplex. The team will not be attending this event due to budget constraints.

At this point, Dina Parise is standing at #2 in IHRA Crower Pro Mod, only 6 points behind Ruben Tetsoshvili. The DPR team continues to push the envelope in every way. From performance to detail this team acknowledges and does it all. Stella sparkles because of the products provided by USA Auto Supply and CRC. She runs well and safely due to products such as DJ Safety, NGK, Speedwire Systems, Hoosier, Motorsports Unlimited and LAT. A special thank you to ‘Uncle Mel’s Mystery Appitizers’.

Dina Parise in MOR-TV Drive Like a Pro PSA

In an effort to encourage everyone to drive safely, I was honored to be asked to be part of the MOR- TV Tampa Drive Like a Pro PSA.

 

‪Safety is first and foremost when it comes to racing and it is very important to me. Of course we know what we do is dangerous and we are constantly making changes to improve safety. But in the scheme of things I believe being racers and constantly facing inherent danger gives us better perspective regarding what can happen in day to day circumstance as well.

 

Let me give you an example. I myself have ‘wadded up’ (as we say) a race car. When you can crash at speeds exceeding 100-200MPH and get out of your vehicle and make lunch….. it’s a good day. The difference being our RACE cars are made to withstand that type of blunt force. A street car, not so much. Let us not forget that in a street car we all are not wearing a 5-7 point harness (the equivalent of an octopus wrapping his arms around you using those suction cups to keep you stuck in that seat) along with a fire suit, neck protection and gloves.

 

So many of these rules (mentioned in the PSA shown below) are common sense and apply to all of us. If you have teen drivers PLEASE talk to them . Not at them… to them. It’s important. Did you know that the days between Memorial Day and Labor Day are the ‘100 deadliest crash days’ for teens in autos? Yes. Talk to them. Educate them.

 

I will leave you with this :

  1. Put on your seatbelts- Yes, they may wrinkle your shirt a bit, but just think of the alternative if you crash not wearing one. Besides, blood stains and glass chards are tough to get out.
  2. Turn off you phone- An LOL, YEA or a SMH can mean the difference between LIVE or DEAD.
  3. Put down your sammich . Looking down at that drip of mustard on your tie or blouse can cost you.

Lastly…..Just pay attention to the road and your surroundings.

We want to see you at the next race!

Here is the PSA…. Please do not hesitate to share!

Dina Parise finishes Runner-up at IHRA Nitro Jam

Rain drops kept falling on our heads. And falling and falling. The IHRA Nitro Jam Cordova Summer Nationals were postponed until Sunday due to inclement weather. Mother Nature must be going through a wicked case of Menopause. She has become that cranky old lady chasing the kids playing ‘stick ball’ down the block with a broom! Only the broom is a rainstorm and the kids are Drag Racers! We need to bring her some Chocolate and a nice bottle of Vino to calm her down.

The Crower Pro Mod Series was able to get one out of the two qualifiers in on Friday and Saturday was a washout. IHRA officials made the decision to hold the race on Sunday. Luckily for fans they could hold on to their tickets to attend the event on Sunday as well as bring a friend for free! There was quite a turnout too!

Dina Parise went to the # 1 qualifying spot on Friday night in her Cadillac Pro Mod Stella with a 6.91. This for sure was not a stellar number for Stella but it held up!

She held that spot through the two rounds of qualifying (the third round was never run due to the wrath of Mother Nature).

Parise did have a bye from the Semi-final round into the finals. “Rather than make a full run we chose to take the tree.” explained Andrew Parise, “You see, we ran this weekend with a crew of two; myself and Butch Branzelle. With the race being held over to Sunday unfortunately Butch had to fly home to get back to work. I was left to crew alone. Alone to wrench, strap Dina in the car, start the car as well as stage her (Dina). It left no room for error. From tuning to safety we really had no choice. Our preference would have been to put a show on for the fans as well as to get data but it was just not in the cards. As they say, ‘you gotta do what ya gotta do’!”

Parise would face Ruben Tetsoshvili in the final. It was not to be her day to stand in the winner’s circle. “I let off the clutch pedal and nothing.” Dina Parise Stated “Stella didn’t move! I could have had a friggin’ meatball sandwich and a nap before she decided to launch. Hence the .500 light! Finally the car leaves. By the numbers, I had him the whole way but of course lost it at the tree. Heartbreaking really.” She continues. “The (Bruno) pump went bad. And, that’s Drag Racing.”

The numbers put on the board were in no way stellar for the Parise team during IHRA Nitro Jam at Cordova International Raceway, yet the team held the #1 qualifier spot and ended the weekend in the runner-up spot. The DPR team continues to push the envelope in every way. From performance to detail this team acknowledges and does it all. Stella sparkles because of the products provided by USA Auto Supply and CRC. She runs well and safely due to products such as DJ Safety, NGK, Speedwire Systems, Hoosier, Motorsports Unlimited and LAT. Visit http://dinapariseracing.com/marketing-partners .

Dina Parise debuts Stella at IHRA Nitro Jam

‘Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm!’~ Winston Churchill. One thing the Dina Parise Team is certainly not lacking is enthusiasm. For that matter the team continues to make strides with their new Cadillac CTS-V Pro Mod Stella. No outing is ever considered a failure, it is considered a learning experience.
“We are making steady progress with Stella”, Stated Andrew Parise. “She (Stella) has lived up to her stubborn Italian namesake (Dina’s grandmother). So, that stubbornness is not foreign to me, but I do know how to get a handle on it! I’m positive her stubbornness will be advantageous in the end! ” He laughs.
The DPR team is running the IHRA Nitro Jam, Crower Racing Racing Products Pro Mod series. The first two stops were Bradenton Motorsports Park and Palm Beach International Raceway.
Palm Beach 4
The racing report for Stella the Cadillac at IHRA Nitro Jam Crower Pro Mod at Bradenton Motorsports Park was for sure less than stellar. Stella was plagued with mechanical issues all weekend long. The DPR crew worked continuously throughout the event to rectify the issue, but to no avail.
“Just when you think you are making progress, BAM… something comes up and bites you”, Stated Dina Parise. “My crew is the absolute best! They worked their tails off! But I do need to thank Crower Racing Products (Don, Louis and the gang), Pluchino Racing, Dave Tomasino, Hank Williams and everyone else who pitched in to help. It was a valiant effort to get Stella down the track.”
If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again! The Dina Parise Racing team did just that. Next it was on to IHRA Nitro Jam Crower Pro Mod at Palm Beach International Raceway. Dina qualified 5th with a 6.442 sec. /213.30MPH. Not a stellar number by any means but the bugs had left the Cadillac! It was ultimately a first round loss for DPR, but in the scheme of things progress was made.
“Stella left great and I was with Jimmy (Keen) until about ½ track. At that point Stella headed for the wall and I had to get out of it.” Said Dina. “I just had to watch him blow by me. I really wanted that win light for my crew. Andrew (Parise), Butch (Branzelle) and Dave (Jordan). They worked so hard. We will get them in Cordova!”
Next stop on the IHRA Nitro Jam tour is Cordova International Raceway May 29-30 for the Summer Nationals! The DPR team is looking forward to more head to head Crower Pro mod action! Head out to the track to take in the action! Not near there? Well, you can watch the Live feed ! Just head to IHRA.com and click on the ‘Live webcast’ for Nitro Jam!

Dina Parise Racing welcomes USA Auto Supply

         Dina Parise Racing welcomes USA Auto Supply

 

 

 

Andrew Parise has other nicknames besides ‘Bam Bam’, one of them is ‘Shiney’. Yes you read that correctly, ‘Shiney’. Andrew has an obsession with keeping all the Parise’s vehicles clean enough to eat a good Italian meal off of. Race cars can be a challenge to keep clean, but in the Dina Parise Racing camp cleanliness is next to … well, you know!

To look your best, you need superior products. USA Auto Supply carries those products. USA Auto Supply has been a supporter of Dina Parise Racing for many years. For the 2015 season, owner Ivan Mejias has decided to increase his support of the team to becoming a Marketing Partner. http://www.usaautosupply.com/

“Having USA Auto Supply on board as a Marketing Partner is very exciting for our team,” states Dina Parise. “They sell a myriad of amazing cleaning products as well as paint. All cleaning products are produced and tested by Ivan himself.” Said Dina

“USA Auto Supply is very happy to be stepping up our support of DPR.” Stated Ivan Mejias. “They (DPR) are true Marketing ‘Partners’. This team knows how to bring the consumers to the product. In the end, that is the main objective.” Said Ivan.

“I don’t like dirty vehicles, “stated Andrew Parise. “ I am bit OCD about keeping things clean. I have to admit, USA Auto Supplies’ products make my job easy, certainly easier than dealing with the boss!” He laughs.

One particular product, for the racers out there is USA Auto Supply’s ‘Tar Remover’ product that is second to none! This product removes (tire) rubber from the wheelie bars as well as the car itself without blemishing the paint. In addition, the Spray Waxes, Chrome Polishes, Tire Shine and Leather Cleaners (to name a few) work well for all car enthusiasts. From inside to out, these products will keep your vehicle looking show worthy! Not only do the products work well, they are priced well. You will not have to break the bank to look your best!

“Our DPR team has been utilizing USA Auto Supply products for years.” Stated Dina “We are proud to also announce that we will be carrying their products at Andi-Con Performance as well. Providing cutting edge products to our customers, fans and fellow racers is what we are all about.”

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

 

What’s that song? Ah, yes ‘See you in September!’ Well, September is finally here and you know what that means? It’s time again for the Nassau County Cruise to the Show! The Dina Parise Racing team is looking forward to again appearing at this unbelievable event on September 28th! But, this year will be a bit different…..

Many of you are familiar with DPR and their Pro Mods. Well, this year you will no longer be seeing the ‘his and hers’ Corvettes you may be accustomed to. Reason being is that DPR has now taken ‘High Performance Luxury’ to the next level! I bet you are scratching you head right now saying, “What in the world does that mean?” Keep reading.

DPR is proud to present, ‘Stella’. The brand new 3,000HP Cadillac CTS-V built by Matheis Race Cars Inc. (Paint by Bruce Mullins). Did your eyes deceive you? A 3,000 HP Cadillac? Can it be? Yes, it can be and it is! Stella is stunning!

This, ladies and gentleman IS a bonafide race car. She has a Supercharged 526 HEMI motor and she means business ( a perfect match with her driver). But, as tough as she is screaming down the drag strip when she comes to a stop she is quite demure. That is partly because of the built in Lipstick holder on the shifter tower. “Not only does every New York girl need a beautiful 3,000 HP Cadillac, but she has to be sure she has her lipstick on when she steps out of it.” Said Dina Parise “ I actually posed putting a Lipstick holder ( in the car) to Rob (Matheis) as a joke, but I guess he really believes in giving the customer what they want!” She laughs.

The DPR team will be on hand to showing both the 53 Corvette Pro Mod that Andrew drives, as well as the New Cadillac CTS-V that Dina drives. Stop by, see the cars, take a pic and get an autograph! Don’t forget that Bella the PR Pug always makes an appearance as well in her Jr Dragster stroller! Also on hand that day will be crew member Charlie Saccoccio.

Head out to Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, NY Sunday September 28th from 10am-5pm and join the fun! And do not forget your sunglasses because Stella is so bright, you gotta wear shades!

Dina Parise Racing Takes High Performance Luxury to the Next Level!

 

High Performance Luxury: High performance luxury can be defined as space, comfort and presence but yet, is ultimately defined by the ‘feel’ of the overall vehicle. Emotion begins to distinguish the difference between a ‘luxury’ and a ‘mainstream’ car. Well, things just became emotional!

In the spirit of taking high performance luxury to the next level, the Dina Parise Racing team would like to present and welcome ‘Stella’, the NEW Cadillac CTS-V built by none other than Matheis Race Cars Inc.

“This build has certainly taken a bit longer than we had planned.” Stated Dina Parise. “This was not the fault of anyone, we just ran into a few snags along the way. And besides, perfection takes time, right? Stella is perfect! We gave her that name after my Nanny Stella. She was a tough, independent, a fiery (in every sense of the word) Red-Headed Italian! It just works!” She laughs.

Take the term ‘luxury’ out of it (for a moment) and what are you left with? Frankly, you are left with a bad ass, classy looking Pro Mod. No other way to define Stella than that. In putting the pieces of the Pro Mod puzzle together, her naming became the final piece. From the Cadillac CTS-V Body selection to the Chassis assembly through to the safety equipment as well as the paint and finishing touches, this car has been nothing short of a labor of love covered in a veil of secrecy for all involved.

Throughout the process DPR chose to keep Stella under wraps. In the initial stages, they showed a few build photos and that turned to ‘sneak peek’ photos soon thereafter. “Keeping her a bit of a mystery was fun for us and the fans!” stated Dina. “It was a great way to pass the time as well as recognize our Marketing Partners during the process. We made the absolute best of the situation. That’s what we are best at!”

Keeping Stella under wraps was especially tough for Rob Matheis of Matheis Race Cars Inc. “I have said before that I have been a fan of the Parise’s for a long time.” Stated Rob Matheis “So, when the opportunity arose to build the Cadillac for Dina we were all in. The fact that this car looks so close to the actual CTS-V will keep the fans wanting more. Admittedly keeping this build a secret was not easy. But in the end we are extremely proud of the product we have built for them.” Said Rob .

During the process of the build, DPR has gained the support of a few new Marketing Partners. “We are very thankful for the Partners we currently have as well as for the additional ones that have hoped on board with DPR!” Stated Dina.“ All of our Partners have assisted to make this happen in one way or another. We are very appreciative of that and are proud to represent all of them.” Said Dina

In recent months the DPR team released information regarding new Partner relationships. Due to the secrecy of the Cadillac project, some of their contributions (with their blessing) had been kept secret as well. Thankfully, the CTS-V is outta the bag and DPR can share the contributions made! Pay close attention, because you will definitely want to patronize these businesses once you see their work! (You can find a full list of Marketing Partners below). IMG_5767

As stated the car was built by Matheis Race Cars inc. What would a Supercharged Pro Mod be without a spectacular pair of Headers fabricated by Stainless Works. DPR is proud to be enlisted in the SW Army! A powerful race car such as this needs the best safety equipment around, so DPR of course went to DJ Safety! From Fire suit to boots and belts to chutes, DJ Safety has provided DPR with the best looking most effective safety equipment on the market today. Do not forget Bell Racing for the best melon protection around! Safety and comfort makes for a great race day!

The final stage leading to the reveal of course was making the Cadillac look as perfect as she should. That was left to Paint by Bruce Mullins with materials provided by USA Auto Supply. “Anyone who knows me knows I have a crazy attention to detail.” Stated Dina “Bruce was a partner in my insanity. From the Headlights and the grill to the personalized license plate as well as the emblems, Bruce nailed it! Stella is a stunner!” Said Dina

Not only was the paint on Cadillac executed perfectly, but Andrew Parise and Bruce Mullins had a surprise in store for Dina as well. That surprise came in the form of a handwritten note (inside the driver’s door) from none other than IHRA Funny Car champion Bunny Burkett. ‘Set your goals high, don’t settle for less- Do it one run at a time. Be safe and win…..Your friend, Bunny Burkett.’ How cool is that?

So, Stella is out for the world to see. The DPR team looks forward to getting her down the track in competition shortly! Always remember safety first ‘cause Stella’s so bright…. You’ll hafta wear shades!

Dina Parise Racing Welcomes DJ Safety!

 

When you hear music on the radio you know that a DJ is the one behind the scenes playing it. When you see a driver outfitted the best safety equipment, who do you think is behind the scenes making it? Well, DJ Safety of course!

Amidst the excitement of the impending debut of the Dina Parise Racing Cadillac CTSV Pro Mod (being built by Matheis Race Cars Inc.) the team has continued to work hard for existing Marketing Partners as well as bringing new ones on board!

At this time, DPR would like to welcome DJ Safety as a Marketing Partner! Dina will be safe from the Fire Suit she wears to the chutes she pulls! In addition, Matheis Race Cars Inc. has signed on as an Authorized Dealer as well. Having an extraordinary race car built is necessary and securing it with the proper safety equipment is essential.

Stay tuned with DPR for the latest in what’s happening! If you blink…you may miss something! So pay attention! Lot’s more to come very soon!

DPR would like to thank DJ Safety as well as their existing Marketing Partners for their support.
