With this season off to a great start, Dina is looking to have a repeat weekend at the Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod Assoc. race at Maryland International Raceway on May 15th. “MIR has been a tough track for me, my car and our crew,” stated Dina Parise. “MIR is a great facility and Royce Miller and his staff do an amazing job, but last season, somehow my ’63 Tim McAmis Corvette always got bitten .Time to bite back! As of now, my husband and I have one (NEOPMA) win each, but I want that second trophy first. It’s a tough field, so we will see.”
After last weekend at VMP, the team really could have used some R&R but that is not going to happen for a while. “We have restocked the trailer, done a ton of cleanup and a lot of maintenance is being done so we can make this next event,” stated Andrew Parise. “Both cars needed rear gears. My car is at Montana Brothers Pro Chassis Design for some upgrades. It was a tough race, I qualified number one and I really wanted that win. As most folks may know, my wife and I are very competitive. We are a team all the way, but trust me, when it comes to the win light, the ‘ we’ goes away, real fast! My 53’ Montana Bros. Corvette is a competitive car and I need to get this car in the winner’s circle again. We won here last year and I want to take that trophy home, if I don’t win I will never get that monkey (Tim O’hare ) off my back!”(He laughs)
May 15th is not just any ordinary race day. May 15th is Armed Forces day. It is a day that we as citizens should come together and thank our Military members for their patriotic service in support of our country. Through Parise Racing’s Vettes for Vets Program (in association with the Wounded Warrior Project) , our Nation’s Military personnel, (active duty, retired Veterans etc) will be joining in on the racing action at MIR! Vettes for Vets is a program the Parise’s have created, and bring to life at every event they attend. “We want to thank Royce Miller and Brian Starner of MIR for assisting us with putting together our Vettes for Vets program at their facility,” Stated Dina.” Without that help, we have no program.”
