Cruz Pedregon & Aaron Brooks

Two time NHRA Nitro Funny car Champion and 35 time Nitro Funny Car National Event Winner Cruz Pedregon announced on Saturday that he has brought Aaron Brooks on board to be his crew chief in 2017 for the Snap On backed Toyota Camry. 

Aaron Brooks was previously the crew chief on Morgan Lucas' Top Fuel Dragster and before that was the Crew Chief for Melanie Troxel when she was with the R2B2 camp. 

This is big news for Cruz and his team in 2017 as he has steadily been making progress in 2016 towards being right back in the hunt for another Funny Car Championship. Aaron brings an enormous amount of experience with him to Cruz's team as well. Cruz also has a solid team behind him from the 2016 season.

We hear this isn't the only news that will be coming out of the Cruz Pedregon camp this off season as well. We will bring you more news as soon as we have it. And trust me, if you think the Aaron Brooks news was a step in the right direction, wait until you read what's next.
