Janette Thornley Leaves Ray Price Team

Published on January 18, 2013 by   ·   1 Comment

It was an interesting rookie year for Janette Thornley. In her first ever drag race season, she finished 5th in two very competitive Pro Dragster fields.  Now it’s time to set a schedule for 2013 and she’s up to the challenge again.

“There will be some major changes with my program this year,” says Thornley, “First I’m leaving the nest of Ray Price and the Ray Price Racing team. I can’t begin to thank them enough for their support and assistance but it’s time to stand on my own.”

This year, Buddy Foss and Freddie Robbins will comprise the crew for Dream Chaser Racin’.  Both fellas have over 25+ years racing experience, Foss worked in the NASCAR circuit so he’s very familiar with need for consistency and attention to detail.  Robbins brings tons of experience to the team being both a rider and tuner. “I’m excited to get the two heads together!”


“We’ve arranged an RV for traveling and we will be based in NC so that I can fly in to races from the Northwest. Our trailer will have to be replaced to carry the additional weight of equipment.  We are still pulling our schedule together but will likely complete at all the AMRA races and will probably pick up a few additional races throughout the season as time and money will allow.”
