TWO-TIME FUNNY CAR WORLD CHAMP CRUZ PEDREGON READY TO FLIP COUNTDOWN SWITCH DURING AAA TEXAS NHRA FALLNATIONALS

ENNIS, Texas — If taking momentum into the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Countdown to the Championship is an important factor in winning a world championship title, Funny Car standout Cruz Pedregon may not like his chances. But if performing well under pressure and in big moments is just as important, then things may be lining up perfectly for Pedregon and his 10,000-horsepower Snap-on Tools Toyota Camry to make another run at a Funny Car title.

Pedregon will try to make it two straight at the 29th annual AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals, which [...]
