To increase awareness of the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization dedicated to helping wounded veterans returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan, the Snap-on Funny Car is tricked out with a special paint scheme honoring these American heroes. The “Wounded Warriors” Snap-on Funny Car, driven by two-time NHRA champion Cruz Pedregon, took part in July's 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,” according to Snap-on.
“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.”
