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.

Dina Parise Racing to appear at Brake-Fest

FREE: without cost or payment. That best describes the festivities of the event Dina Parise will be appearing at as a special guest this Saturday October 1st! (Free to spectators only)

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!
