  • DeJoria has strong New England roots, having spent much of her childhood in the Narragansett, R.I. area 
  • DeJoria has long considered the New England Nationals to be a homecoming event, and is looking forward to being surrounded by much of her East Coast family

“The NHRA New England Nationals is one of my favorite events on the circuit for many reasons. It’s somewhat of a hometown race for me. I have my whole East Coast family and friends that always show up to Epping in full force. I’ve runnered-up there before and we’re looking for another strong showing this weekend. Hopefully we can create some more of that good momentum we had rolling into Chicago, which was a weekend we’d rather forget.”
