“The New England Nationals is definitely an event that we always look forward to. The fans in that area are unbelievable, and our NAPA AUTO PARTS community there is like no other. It’s one of the rare races where we go in early and spend the whole week with our NAPA AUTO PARTS and NAPA AutoCare customers. The race weekend conditions look like they’re going to be super-fast this weekend, and New England Dragway has one of the best track surfaces on tour so it’s shaping up to be one of those great racing weekends and I’m excited to see all of our fans on the East Coast.”
