  • DeJoria enjoyed a solid showing at the Las Vegas Four-Wide Nationals earlier this month, having advanced to the final elimination quad
  • In addition to last month’s Vegas final appearance, DeJoria was also a finalist at the 2021 Charlotte Four-Wide Nationals, and is seeking her third consecutive final quad showing at a four-wide event

“We’ve had some success with four-wide racing, having been to the finals at the two most recent Four-Wide Nationals, although we have yet to win one. A four-wide Wally is definitely on the bucket list.
“Our team worked really hard to get the chassis repaired from Houston, and we have a new body, so we’re well-prepared heading into this weekend’s race. Hopefully our Bandero Toyota Supra Funny Car team can add some more round wins to our total, and finally capture our first four-wide trophy this weekend.”
