Indianapolis, IN (October 16, 2003)-Former NHRA Funny Car Champion Cruz Pedregon will be honored this Saturday as the Grand Marshall for the Advance Auto Parts 200 at Martinsville Speedway, one of the premier stops in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.

Pedregon, who drives the Advance Auto Parts Funny Car in the NHRA series, will be taking in all the NASCAR action as he waves the green flag and watches drivers like Ted Musgrave, Ken Schrader, Jimmy Spencer, and current points leader Brendan Gaughan fight their way to the finish line.

"I am honored to be the Grand Marshall for the Advance Auto Parts 200" stated Pedregon. "Drag racing is my passion, but I am a big fan of all motorsports. This should be a competitive race and I look forward to the action and supporting my sponsor."

Cruz Pedregon and the Advance Auto Parts Racing Team have made a strong showing in the second half of 2003 highlighted two weeks ago with a career-best elapsed time of 4.796 at 320.43 m.p.h. at Reading. The team will be heading next to Las Vegas for the AC Delco NHRA Nationals, October 23-26.
