NHRA Full Throttle 2012 Yearbook Benefits Cancer Research PDF Print E-mail

BROWNSBURG, IN – Fans of NHRA Full Throttle Drag racing can pre-order a collectable yearbook from the 2012 season that will be available just in time for Christmas. The yearbook, titled "Life's A Drag," will feature full-color action and candid photos of the NHRA’s hottest drivers and their families.

Produced by Andrea Pedregon, founder of the Andrea Pedregon Charity Foundation, “A Spark of Hope,” the 60-page year in review will highlight the 2012 races and give fans a glimpse into what their favorite pro drivers do when they are not racing.

Proceeds from the sales will benefit colon and prostate cancer research. Pedregon, wife of two-time Funny Car champion Tony Pedregon, raised nearly $100,000 to support melanoma and children’s cancer research in the past two years through sales of her foundation’s “Real Housewives” and “Real Families” calendars featuring NHRA drivers and their families.

"I am continually fueled to create new charity projects, thanks to the enormous support from NHRA drivers, teams, sponsors and fans,” Pedregon said. “The yearbook sales will support additionally needed research and awareness for prostate and colon cancer."

Fans can order the “Life’s a Drag” yearbook now at www.tonypedregon.com for just $25 each, plus shipping, for guaranteed Christmas delivery. For more information about the Andrea Pedregon Charity Foundation, visit www.andreapedregon.com.

 
2012 NHRA Yearbook PDF Print E-mail

After much consideration, I have decided to move forward with another charity project and include all teams, drivers, owners, sponsors, and advertisers. In lieu of producing another calendar, this year I would like to create a “ Yearbook” (similar to the annually published PEOPLE Magazine Yearbook). I will be requesting permission to use the NHRA/Full Throttle logo (as I have in the past) for use on the cover. The layout would consist of sections for each Pro Class, including Sportsman & Pro Mod.

The yearbook will highlight race pictures from the current race season, as well as pictures from home ... fans love to know about what we do when we are not racing (ie: engagement, marriage, new baby, kids, vacation, other races you may attend, casual/formal events outside of racing, celebrity meetings, concerts, holidays, etc.)

Please consider helping me support yet another great cause and be a part of a unique “collectable yearbook” from the 2012 season! The last 2 calendars raised nearly $100,000 combined and supported Melanoma research and Children’s cancer thanks to YOUR help!

NHRA drivers are ready for new thrills at Cedar Point PDF Print E-mail

Tony Pedregon is proud to once again lead a group of drivers to attend Cedar Point on Monday July 9th; the day after the completion of the NHRA Full Throttle race in Norwalk, OH.

For several years, Pedregon has invited drivers to come and bring their families out to the historic theme park for an autograph session for the fans and to enjoy the park. This years’ group of drivers features a few mainstays in the event: two-time Funny Car Champion Pedregon, former Pro Stock Motorcycle Champion and current Top Fuel Driver Antron Brown, and Five-Time Funny Car event winner and current top ten standing driver Bob Tasca. For this seasons’ event, we are pleased to welcome reigning Funny Car Champion Matt Hagan to the event as well.
