Snap-on Race Teams Look Forward To Exciting Season

With last season ending with a victory for the Snap-on Funny Car and a NASCAR Sprint Cup season championship, hopes are high for a great 2013 Snap-on racing season. For the fourth year in a row, Snap-on will sponsor Cruz Pedregon and the Snap-on Funny Car. Pedregon closed out the 2012 season with a victory in the NHRA Finals in Pomona, Calif., for his 30th career win, and he and the Snap-on team finished fourth in the season points standings.

With last season ending with a victory for the Snap-on Funny Car and a NASCAR Sprint Cup season championship, hopes are high for a great 2013 Snap-on racing season.

For the fourth year in a row, Snap-on will sponsor Cruz Pedregon and the Snap-on Funny Car. Pedregon closed out the 2012 season with a victory in the NHRA Finals in Pomona, Calif., for his 30th career win, and he and the Snap-on team finished fourth in the season points standings. Snap-on will also serve as an associate sponsor of Tony Pedregon’s Funny Car team.

Continuing its long-time partnership with Penske Racing, Snap-on will sponsor Penske’s NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide teams, featuring defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski and drivers Joey Logano, Sam Hornish and Ryan Blaney. Snap-on will also sponsor Penske’s IRL team, including drivers Helio Castroneves and Will Power.

“We ended the 2012 race season with such memorable moments and we hope that success will carry over into 2013,” said Yvette Morrison, vice president of marketing, Snap-on Tools. “We have long and valued associations with Penske and Pedregon Racing, and we know our sponsored race teams are poised for great things this year.”

Cruz Pedregon and the Snap-on Funny Car will return to action on Feb. 14 at the NHRA Winternationals in Pomona, Calif., while the 2013 NASCAR season kicks off with the Nationwide 300 at Daytona on Feb. 23 and the Daytona 500 on Feb. 24. The IRL season will commence on March 24 in St. Petersburg.
