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~ Keeping the Memory in Memorial Day

 

It seems that in this day and age we are a society driven by instant gratification and plagued with short term memory. What ‘sells’ on the news and in print are stories about the impending nuptials of stars (reality or actual celebrity) or the death of a celebrity (many times due to their own addictions), not stories regarding how many soldiers were lost that day or even that week. Sports stars are being labeled as heroes merely for putting a ball into a net or carrying it over a goal line. It is Sensationalism VS. Realism and reality is certainly the victim in this scenario.

The fact remains that more than 7,000 American service members (Male and Female) have been killed since the attacks of September 11, 2001, and well over 50,000 have been injured. Many of those injuries so severe, that if they were sustained in a prior conflict the soldier would not have survived. Our nation has been entered in many conflicts. The loss and injury numbers are staggering. As years go by our country and its citizens seems to hold less regard for those who sacrifice so much defending it and protecting the very freedom enjoyed by all.

Back to Reality: The reality of it all is that what has become ‘important’ is really not reality at all. The shift in what has ‘meaning ‘has come down to where the money is rather than where the morality is. It has become more important to plug a non-talent reality star’s wedding than Medal of Honor recipient (former) Army Sgt. Kyle J. White , especially on Memorial DayWeekend? Has Memorial Day become more about the sales in the stores, the Barbeques and the beer? Does anyone actually know the real meaning of Memorial Day? Who takes the time to go to a National or Veteran Cemetery to pay respects or place a flag? Not many. This needs to change.

The Dina Parise Racing team has had the honor on a few occasions to participate in ‘Fleet Week’ at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York. It is a breathtaking place to be no matter the time of year. Fleet Week happens to fall during Memorial Day Weekend .The team has met people from all over the world. One woman from Sweden really hit the nail on the head with what she said. She asked “What is this Holiday? I see Red, White and Blue everywhere. There are sales in all the stores, but I do not understand what the Holiday is. Can you explain it to me?” Our DPR team obliged. ‘ Memorial Day is a US federal holiday wherein the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces are remembered.’ But are they?The unfortunate reality to that is it seems the younger generation has the same question. We need to bring back the importance of this and all the Veteran holidays because the honor has been earned.

Now, of courseno one is saying do not have a ‘Welcome Summer’ Barbeque, or do not go shopping for that perfect pair of sandals. The point is, to remember why you can do all of these things you are doing with such ease. Take a moment to reflect. If you see a Veteran, thank them. Take you children to a National Cemetery to place a flag or have them volunteer in a VA home. Giving back to those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom is not too much to ask.

Always remember Freedom is not Free…… Hate the war, not the warrior…. Fly your flag proudly!

On another note….. the DPR team will be seeing you all out there soon! More to come shortly!

DPR Featured in Dragzine !


Although the Dina Parise Racing team seemed to have made it’s mark with the famed Military ‘themed’ 63 and 53 Corvette Pro Mods … The departure of Dina’s 63 Corvette is causing a pleasant ‘exciting’ stir! Feel the excitement in this Dragzine article regarding the build of Dina’s Cadillac Pro Mod due to debut this season!

http://www.dragzine.com/news/dina-parise-excited-about-debut-of-new-cadillac-cts-v-pro-mod/

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!
