Cruz pedregon–las vegas advance

NHRA® Team Report

NHRA Four-Wide Nationals – Las Vegas

Pre-Race Report

With one of his strongest starts to a season, Cruz Pedregon and team are third in the NHRA Funny Car standings and ready to get back on the track this week in Las Vegas in front of a sold-out crowd.

“We’ve got good data and the confidence of going to the semis our first time out with this new team that will give us the momentum we need to do well at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway,” Cruz says. “John Collins has had cars he’s tuned in the final rounds at both of the previous Vegas four-wides, so we’re eager to give it our best shot.”

The Snap-on Dodge® piloted by Cruz is already seeing consecutive 3.9 runs, a tribute to the hard work being done to get it right early in the season and stay in the groove. 

Cruz is one of only five Funny Car drivers who’ve won a championship and five majors — the Winternationals, Gatornationals, Englishtown, U.S. Nationals, and the World Finals and one of only seven Funny Car drivers who’ve won four majors and a championship. “It feels really good to be a contender again,” says Cruz.
