BRISTOL — A repeat performance at Bristol? That would suit Alexis DeJoria just fine.
One year after the breakout moment of her rookie season, a runner-up finish at the Ford Thunder Valley Nationals, DeJoria and her Patron Funny Car team returned to Bristol Dragway this weekend with a confident outlook.
“Going to the finals last year, my first time racing at Bristol, I love this track,” DeJoria said. “Not just because we went to the finals, but the acoustics — it sounds a lot like a fighter jet flying super low. It definitely is a confidence booster for the whole team, just knowing that last year we had that great run here.”
