Noteworthy:Enjoyed her best Denver performance to date at the 2021 event, powering to a runner-up finish from the No. 2 qualifying positionDeJoria is looking to take last year’s final round appearance one step further and capture her first trophy of the seasonAs NHRA Camping World Series event No. 11, Denver marks the final race of the first half of the 22-race seasonQuotable:
“We had a great outing in Denver last year, having made it to the final round from the No. 2 qualifying position. We were very consistent throughout qualifying and on race day. It’s common knowledge that crew chiefs have a ‘Denver specific’ tune-up that they turn to every year, and it definitely makes us feel good heading into an event where we know we have a proven combination for that particular track.
“After these few weeks off, I’m looking forward to getting back after it this weekend. Personally, I don’t like the long breaks in between race weekends. Of course, sometimes it’s necessary for us to get home and recharge, but I tend to believe that the more races we have back-to-back, the better it is for me as a driver as well as for my team. We like to get into that go-go-go rhythm, and I’m looking forward to kicking off this three-race swing on a high note.”
