“It is an honor and privilege to drive the Snap-on Funny Car on behalf of the Wounded Warrior Project and host these great men and women during race weekend,” said Pedregon. “Last year, we had a tremendous group of ‘warriors’ at the race and the whole Snap-on Funny Car team had a great time with them.  We are excited to be hosting another group this year and we hope to bring home a victory in recognition of these true American heroes.”

The Wounded Warriors, who will be guests of Snap-on and Pedregon, will be treated to an exciting weekend of racing and hospitality. Several special activities are planned for the Wounded Warriors at this year’s race both in the pit area as well as at the starting line.

“On behalf of all Snap-on franchisees and associates, it is an honor to host these great American Service Men and Women at the Chicago NHRA race,” said Yvette Morrison, vice president of marketing, Snap-on Tools Group. “Since its founding, Snap-on has a long, proud history of supporting our armed services and based on the unforgettable weekend last year, we know this will be another memorable event. We hope the unique design on the Snap-on Funny Car helps raise awareness of the important mission of the Wounded Warrior Project.”
