J CRUZ PEDREGON ANNOUNCES CREW CHIEF CHANGE

JINDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (August 6, 2007) Cruz Pedregon, announced today the appointment of assistant crew chief, Kevin Butterfield as interim crew chief of the Advance Auto Parts Funny Car team replacing Wayne Dupuy. Butterfield will be led by Dickie Venables, crew chief for Tony Pedregon's Q Horsepower Funny Car team.

"Tony and I have always had a goal to set our cars with each running the same way and as close to identical as possible," said Pedregon. "It's our team philosophy that identical tune-ups and the sharing of performance data will put both teams in a better position to win rounds and win races.

"Wayne has worked hard for us this year and he has been successful everywhere he's been," said Pedregon. "We wish him the best in his future endeavors."

Pedregon and his Advance Auto Parts Funny Car team heads for the NHRA Nationals in Brainerd this weekend. Butterfield will be at the helm as the team aims for a position in the top eight in the Countdown to the Championship.
