POMONA, Calif. (November 8, 2021) – Fresh off his second win of the season, Cruz Pedregon is back in the battle for another Funny Car championship title as he heads to Pomona with his team for the 2021 NHRA Finals.
“The good people, the good team, have kept us alive this season…J.C. (John Collins), Rip (Reynolds) and the guys, they mean a lot to me. We made a big investment to bring them on board and it has been a game-changer,” Cruz says. “Things have really come together for us this year. We had an advantage going into Vegas with consistent runs the last half of the season. And a .004 reaction time helped us get to the finals, win, and head into this weekend in a solid third place in the standings.”
Cruz goes on to say winning a third world championship would be even sweeter with the “franchise” paint scheme on the Snap-on® “Makers and Fixers” Dodge® SRT® Hellcat®. Before every race weekend, he rides along with franchisees in their mobile stores to talk drag racing and tools with customers, getting to know them through the years Snap-on has been his primary sponsor. The scheme carries the signature Snap-on red and black colors with racing stripes featuring special messaging around SnaponFranchise.com. A large “Own It” badge stands out on the hood as a visual reminder of the opportunity to own a Snap-on franchise.
