KENOSHA, Wis. – (June 27, 2021) – Two-time NHRA Funny Car World Champion Cruz Pedregon and the Snap-on Dodge® Charger® raced to victory this weekend at Norwalk, the team’s first Wally of the season. Prior to today’s finish, Cruz’s most recent win was in 2018 at the Charlotte Four-Wide.
“It’s exciting for all of us at Snap-on when Cruz and his team have a successful weekend,” says Samuel Bottum, Snap-on chief marketing officer. “We have a long-time sponsorship with Cruz as an NHRA driver, and we appreciate the hard work he and his team put into making solid runs at the track that pay off on race day.”
Cruz says, “We have been prepping for a winning season, putting in so many hours and there’s nothing quite as rewarding as coming out on top and holding up that trophy at the end of a race weekend. What a great job John (Collins), Rip (Reynolds), and the team did to get us ready for this race. What a real triumph for us all, especially after the 2020 season. We really appreciate our sponsors and great fans for sticking with us and giving us the additional boost of confidence we needed. That support is what makes it all possible.”
