NHRA U.S. Nationals – Indianapolis

Pre-Race Report

Cruz Pedregon is ready to show off what the Snap-on Toyota is capable of this weekend at “The Big Go.” “As a lifelong drag racing driver and fan, every race is important. But this race is as big as it gets, especially with the top 10 Playoffs spot right there for us to take,” Cruz says. “The team and I have been working long and hard for this, and with the point-and-a-half system at Indy, it’s definitely ‘go’ time for us.”

Crew Chief Aaron Brooks says, “The tuning is set; Cruz is pumped; and we want to show fans at our home track and viewers on FOX and NHRA All Access what this car is all about. It’s been one of the most competitive seasons I can remember seeing in Funny Car, and I’m excited to be a part of it this year.”

An Open House is planned at the Cruz Pedregon Racing shop at 462 Southpoint Cir # A, in Brownsburg, Thursday, August 31 from 5 until 8 p.m. The event is open to the public, and firing up the Funny Car is on the agenda.

On the side of Cruz’s car this week –

If you’ll check the side of Cruz’s car this week, you’ll see the name of Snap-on Nitro Franchisee Trey Reed. Previously a heavy equipment and airline mechanic, Trey has been a Snap-on franchisee for just over seven years and got his start after taking advice from his best friend, who is also a franchisee. His favorite part of the business is sharing his knowledge of tools with other tool lovers on his route. Trey’s also a big fan of the many programs and opportunities Snap-on offers its franchisees to help them reach their personal and career goals.
