In an effort to bring increased awareness to the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization dedicated to helping wounded veterans returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq, the Snap-on Funny Car will feature a special paint scheme honoring these American heroes. The “Wounded Warriors” Snap-on Funny Car, driven by two-time NHRA champion Cruz Pedregon, will race July 8-10 at the Chicago NHRA Nationals in Joliet, IL.
The special design was unveiled at a ceremony held in Kenosha, WI, as part of the Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride that visited Snap-on’s world headquarters. The Soldier Ride provides wounded warriors the opportunity to reclaim their confidence and strength through the exhilaration of cycling.
“We are honored to be associated with the Wounded Warrior Project and are indebted to these true heroes who have stepped forward to protect our freedom,” said Tom Kassouf, president, Snap-on Tools Group. “Snap-on has a long history of supporting our armed services. By featuring a special design on our Snap-on Funny Car, we hope to expose more people to this great organization that does so much to encourage and assist wounded service members as they return home.”
