A poem in her honor

  When I am gone, release me - let me go
I have so many things to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me with tears.
Be happy that we had so many years. I gave you love,
you can only guess, how much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love each have shown,
but now it is time I travelled alone.
So grieve awhile for me if grieve you must,
then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It is only for a while that we must part,
so bless those memories within your heart.
I will not be far away, for life goes on.
So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you cannot see or touch me, I will be near.
And if you listen with your heart, you will hear
all of my love around you, soft and clear.
Then when you must come this way alone,
I will greet you with a smile and "Welcome Home"

Blessings & Condolences to Jim, Ashley, Family & Kalitta Racing

Andrea Pedregon Charity Foundation raises 20k and counting for prostate and colon cancer research PDF Print E-mail

The Andrea Pedregon Charity Foundation has raised over $20,000 for prostate and colon cancer research through the 2012 NHRA Yearbook project. The NHRA yearbooks are a spinoff from the calendars the charity typically produces to raise money for different causes each year.

The 2012 NHRA Yearbooks are still available for purchase at and now also available in the NHRA Nitro Mall and Nitro Fish trailer at each race. They are the perfect item to take to the track and have your favorite drivers autograph. There are a select amount of yearbooks left, and the price is now $20.

This year the foundation’s project benefits the IU Simon Cancer Center, a partnership between Indiana University School of Medicine and Indiana University Health, and their efforts towards colon and prostate cancer research.

The Andrea Pedregon Charity Foundation will present the donation to the Cancer Center at the end of year. Check back for updates on the project throughout the year at

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 for just $25 each, plus shipping, for guaranteed Christmas delivery. For more information about the Andrea Pedregon Charity Foundation, visit
