2014 NHRA: Patron XO Cafe Team Looks to Start Strong and Finish Strong in Topeka

No rest for the weary as Atlanta’s number one Funny Car qualifier, Alexis DeJoria, and the Kalitta Motorsports Patrón XO Cafe Toyota Camry team loaded up and headed west earlier this week en route to Heartland Park Topeka for the 26th annual NHRA Kansas Nationals.

This weekend’s event is the second of a three-in-a-row stretch of nonstop races- the first string of consecutive events in the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. Although back-to-back races can be challenging- both logistically and physically- the Patrón XO Cafe team prefers when the NHRA schedule picks up and goes into full swing during the summer months.

“It can be very tedious and tiresome, but at the same time, I sort of prefer this nonstop schedule. Going back-to-back like this keeps you on your game; it keeps you sharp,” said DeJoria, when asked her thoughts on the hectic race schedule that occurs from mid-May until early October, with sixteen races occurring over a twenty week period.

The Patrón XO Cafe team is coming off of a bittersweet race weekend in Atlanta, where inclement weather threw a major curve ball in the weekend’s racing plans. While they earned their first number one qualifier on a track record setting run [4.012-seconds, Atlanta Dragway], the black-and-purple team, which has made it to three final rounds this year- coming out on top twice- suffered a disappointing first round loss. Now going into the NHRA Kansas Nationals, the Patron team is putting that first round loss behind them, and plans on starting strong and finishing strong this weekend at Heartland Park Topeka.

The Kalitta Motorsports Patrón XO Cafe Toyota Camry Funny Car team begins qualifying for the NHRA Kansas Nationals at 5PM CST on Friday.
