Noteworthy:

  • 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 always has a strong showing from her East Coast family who come out to support her at this event

Quotable:
“I love going to Epping because I consider it to be one of my home tracks and my East Coast family always comes out and spends the weekend with our team. We built some good, positive momentum at our last race in Chicago and we’re hoping to carry that into this weekend. Last year, we got completely rained out but fortunately, weather-wise, it’s looking beautiful up there so the fans should be in for a great weekend.”
