NHRA® Team Report
NHRA Four-Wide Nationals - Charlotte
Winning the Charlotte Four-Wide is both a goal and fresh memory for Cruz after taking home the Wally from the zMax four-wide meet just three years ago. Now it's time for the Snap-on Makers & Fixers Dodge® to showcase all the work Cruz, Crew Chief John Collins, and the team have put into the car this year.
"The Snap-on Dodge is becoming more consistent in getting down the track. Race day in Atlanta was the exception to that when we had a cylinder out at the step. We've identified the cause, replaced the wiring that caused the issue, and are confident we're in a position where that won't happen again," says Cruz. "I think we're right in the mix. We just need to get rid of some of these little issues and, performance-wise, we're right there. So, we've spent the past couple of weeks super-focused on preparing for the race ahead and we're ready to win in Charlotte again this year."
When Cruz captured the Funny Car class at the 2018 Four-Wide Nationals in Charlotte, his was the first independent team to win the category since 2016. He calls the win one of the "sweetest" of his career.
