Pedregon Racing is having its annual open house Thursday, Aug. 30, at the team’s shop, two miles from Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis, site of the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals presented by Auto-Plus, Aug. 29-Sept. 3. The event also will feature race cars, hot rods, great concerts, and a charity silent auction.
The race cars and hot rods will be parked in the front of the shop and will include a few from the Pedregon family collection. The band Luminate, presented by K-LOVE Radio, will perform from 3 to 4:30 p.m.; at 5 p.m., the band The Protest will take the stage.
“Our open house gives NHRA fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how our teams prepare for the circuit. It will be a great start to an exciting weekend of events,” said Pedregon.
Additionally, the Andrea Pedregon Charity Foundation: A Spark Of Hope, will be hosting a silent auction during the open house. Race memorabilia from drivers, teams, and sponsors including John Force Racing, Cruz and Tony Pedregon, Ron Capps, Alexis DeJoria, Bob Tasca III, Erica Enders, Coca-Cola, and many others is arriving daily for fans to bid on; it is sure to be an exciting place to be. The proceeds from the auction will benefit Girl’s Nite In, a not-for-profit (Indy affiliate) that helps to empower young girls to make wise choices through safe refuge places and a structured framework.
“Hosting an auction during the kickoff of the legendary Indy race weekend will surely be a great success,” said Andrea Pedregon, founder of the Andrea Pedregon Charity Foundation: A Spark Of Hope. “I am thrilled to help a local organization in need of funding thanks to our NHRA Full Throttle supportive fans.”
