For the Parise Racing team this season has been full of ups and downs from early on. Last weekend proved to be a bit of both.
It was the first outing at the NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Challenge, for the Parise Racing team. Unfortunately, there was only one spot open, for the two car husband and wife team. Dina Parise became the first Parise to run the Pro Mod Challenge at the NHRA SuperNationals in EnglishTown, NJ.
“This was an exciting weekend for all of us.” Stated Dina Parise. “I just wish my ’63 Corvette would have cooperated a bit more. I am disappointed for my team. Everyone worked so hard. A big thanks to my husband Andrew, my Crew Chief Dave Jordan and James Montana.”
During first qualifying shot on Friday, Dina had tire shake. In the second qualifying round, she ran a 6.605 @ 211.53 mph. Obviously , that was not a stellar number, and way slower than that car is capable of running. “ I am a crew member this weekend.” Stated Andrew Parise with a smile. “We headed back to the pit , and took a look at the car and realized the problem. Nothing too major. That is the good thing. The bad thing is, our weekend is over.”
The weekend did end on a high note. Dina’s ’63 Corvette did win best appearing car, so she did come home with a Wally.
Dina and Andrew would like to extend a special thank you to Frank Manzo and his crew for their help this past weekend.
