“The whole Snap-on Funny Car team is ready to get racing,” said racer Cruz Pedregon. The 2012 season marks Pedregon's 20th year driving funny cars as well as the 20th anniversary of his first world championship. This year is also the 20th season that Snap-on has sponsored Pedregon, including the last two as the primary sponsor of the Snap-on Funny Car. In December 2011, Snap-on extended its sponsorship of Pedregon for three more years, including the 2012 season.

As he has in past years, Pedregon will participate in franchisee ride-alongs during race week where he visits with Snap-on customers at their shops. Pedregon will also continue to host hospitality events for Snap-on franchisees and customers during race weekends and make personal appearances on behalf of the company.
