Permatex/Follow a Dream Team Ties All-Time Best in 2015
The 2015 Permatex/Follow A Dream Team, sponsored by Permatex, a leading innovator in chemical technology for automotive maintenance and repair, has completed one of its most successful NHRA campaigns at the top of its game with 2nd place regional and 7th place finishes in the NHRA Top Alcohol Funny Car standings. Three wins during the season, with two of them back-to-back, and strong performances throughout the year helped the Permatex/Follow A Dream Team tie the team’s best season ranking in its 16-year NHRA history.
The Permatex/Follow A Dream Team won two consecutive races during the season, at the Summit Racing Equipment Nationals in Norwalk, OH and at Lebanon Valley Dragway in West Lebanon, NY, respectively, and notched a third win at Virginia Motorsports Park in Petersburg, VA. The team was very competitive for the rest for the season ending just four points shy of a Top 5 national finish.
"One more round-win anywhere during the year, and we would have had our first Top 5. But everyone except the world champion looks back on the season and wishes they'd won one more round somewhere," said team Driver Todd Veney.
“We’re a little disappointed about how our year ended after such a successful start,” stated Permatex/Follow A Dream Team Owner/Crew Chief Jay Blake. “After winning three races during the year, you want to come away with your best finish ever, but we couldn't quite get there. But we’re excited to get back to work next season and improve even more.”
