NHRA® Team Report
NHRA Southern Nationals – Atlanta
With Wally in tow, Cruz Pedregon and team are ready for another win as they head to Atlanta this weekend. “We are still riding high and know we’ve got the car, crew, fans and sponsor to make it happen again,” said Pedregon. “As the driver, I’m really motivated, and it feels good to be backed by talented people and a really great car.”
Crew Chief Aaron Brooks says, “This team puts in long hours to make sure the Snap-on Toyota is running at its peak for Cruz, and the win gives us all a lot of confidence as we move forward in this very promising season. We’re all now channeling our ‘win’ energy for a fast weekend ahead in Atlanta.”
Atlanta Dragway is a track favorite of Cruz’s, even with the potential for changing weather throughout the weekend. Cruz and the rest of the team are prepared for whatever Mother Nature may present and are encouraging fans to come out to the track or watch FOX Sports to take in the excitement of the NHRA Southern Nationals.
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 local Snap-on Nitro Franchisee Trent Dobbs. Trent will soon celebrate his first anniversary as a Snap-on franchisee. He was a technician in an independent shop in his previous work. Trent says his favorite thing about being a Snap-on franchisee is that he gets to make sure his customers have the right tools they need to get the job done. Even though he says he’s always been a car guy, you’ll find him out on his motorcycle when he’s not busy with his Snap-on business. This weekend, you’ll find him out here enjoying all the NHRA has to offer here at the Southern Nationals.
