PEDREGON RACING FOR THE CAUSE THIS WEEKEND

 

Cruz Pedregon has run through a number of Toyota Camry Funny Car bodies this season, and this weekend he’s back in the one he dubbed “El Cucuy.” The pink-highlighted new breast-cancer-awareness paint scheme caused the two-time Funny Car champion to say, "El Cucuy may mean 'The Boogeyman,' but this month it will be a frighteningly good guy when we push the Snap-on Toyota and generate exposure for The Pink Fund and its important work. Snap-on and our team support the mission of The Pink Fund to provide for non-medical living expenses – like transportation, utilities, and housing – of breast-cancer patients undergoing the fight of their lives."

JIM O GIVES HENNEN TEAM BIG BOOST

Part-time Top Fuel racer Kebin Kinsley, of Arlington, Texas, put Roger Hennen’s Road Rage Dragster into the tentative lineup Friday night at a respectable No. 12. But he came back out Saturday and leaped to the No. 6, lowering his best time of the weekend from 3.883 seconds to 3.803 and picking up some speed, from 317.19 mph to 317.34.

Surely the boost this weekend is a reflection of the one-race addition of longtime and respected crew chief Jim Oberhofer.

“That was awesome. Thank God for Jim O! I’m ecstatic,” Kinsley declared when he climbed from his dragster at the top end of the track in the third overall session Saturday.
