Cruz Pedregon Team Report – Bristol NHRA ThunderNationals
BRISTOL, Tenn. (October 13, 2021) – Cruz Pedregon and the Snap-on® Dodge® Hellcat® Funny Car are heading to Bristol in the #3 spot in the NHRA Countdown, moving up a rankings spot by having a career-first five bonus points from the Dallas race.
“Hats off to our Crew Chief JC (John Collins) and Assistant Crew Chief Rip (Reynolds) and the team. They are on their game…really doing a great job of preparing me and giving me a really good car,” says Cruz. “It will be interesting to race Thunder Valley at this time of year. We’re used to being here in the late spring, but no matter what the weather holds, the Snap-on Dodge doesn’t mind where it is. We’ve been running well in all temperatures and altitudes, and we plan to do so again this weekend.”
Cruz calls Bristol a “cool track” and says it’s one of the premier venues on the NHRA circuit with all the bells and whistles of the modern stadium look and feel.
Cruz’s car will once again be decked out in the Snap-on Tools Socket to Breast Cancer paint scheme through the Breast Cancer Awareness month of October in support of raising funds for The Pink Fund® in the U.S. and Kelly Shires Foundation in Canada. Both organizations help breast cancer patients in their time of need, including providing valuable support for Cruz’s sister Dora who is a cancer survivor.
