Dina Parise is the President of Dina Parise Ventures. She was the 2015 IHRA Pro Mod World Champion and the first female to hold that title. She was a professional figure skater and skated with the Ice Capades for four years and after leaving the ice she decided to start drag racing. Her first quarter-mile run was 9 seconds at 146 miles per hour and today she drives her Pro Mod Cadillac named “Stella” at under 6 seconds and over 240 mph. Her motto, “it’s an accomplishment to get to the finish line first, but the journey getting there is what is most important” is what drives Dina to compete. In addition to racing, she serves through motivational speaking engagements and mentoring females not only in the sport but beyond.
