PRESS RELEASE: Out of the Funny Car and into the booth: Pedregon Q&A

By on Dec 30, 2015 in Press Release |

This extended QA marks the third in a series with FOX Sports motor sports personalities to be highlighted over the next several months. Two-time NHRA Funny Car champion Tony Pedregon, who competed on track in 2015, moves to the FOX NHRA booth in 2016 for the inaugural National Hot Rod Association season on the FOX family of networks. To learn more about Pedregon, please visit http://tonypedregon.com/ and follow him on Twitter @TonyPedregon. FOX SPORTS: Why the move to television and what are you doing to prepare for your new role? PEDREGON: The timing seemed to be right. I’ve been a hired driver and team owner, winning championships in both roles. But as much as I enjoy driving, I never imagined myself being in the seat for another five to 10 years, maybe as a team owner, and I always had in the back of my mind that there are safer things in life than sitting behind a 10,000-horsepower motor. When the thought of being a part of the new FOX Sports broadcast team became a consideration, everything about it pointed to something very appealing and more and more like the next chapter of my career. To prepare I have been watching a lot of NFL analysts, boxing and other sports broadcasts. Many late nights spent on YouTube watching drag racing greats like Steve Evans, Dave McClelland and Chris Economaki. My perspective will come from a different background as a former owner/driver, but I can learn from pros I enjoy watching and listening to. I’m sure there will be a lot of training and coaching to help me prepare to do a good job for the viewers. FOX SPORTS: How has the new television package been received by the NHRA teams? What impact do you expect it to have on the sport? PEDREGON: The new TV partnership with FOX Sports is something we have all been hoping would happen for a long time. We have a great high-energy product with interesting personalities and stories, and like anything else, the only thing the sport has lacked is the ability to share the experience, particularly with new audiences. Our current fans are the best and they want some consistency in being able to find the show, but the live factor...
