BY SUSAN WADE - For DC Motorsports co-owner Alexis DeJoria, restarting the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season was Christmas in July.

“I was really excited when I heard we would open at Indy,” the driver of the ROKiT Phones Toyota Camry Funny Car said.

DeJoria had won the 2014 U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis, and that, she said, “was the high point of my career.” The anticipation had her sleepless.

After all, she had taken a hiatus, one that gnawed at her. She knew she needed to address family concerns, but at the same time, she hardly could stand not being in the seat of her 11,000-horsepower, nitro-burning chariot. And just when she got a reminder of the 330-mph thrills she had been missing, the sport had to pause, as well.
