TOPEKA, Kan. --

Tony Pedregon has a big weekend prepared in Topeka. Pedregon will debut his brand new 2012 Toyota Camry, and Herzog Contracting Corp. will be in the primary role for the first time in the 2012 season. Herzog Contracting Corp. has been a major associate for Pedregon Racing since 2004. The NHRA Dollar General Summer Nationals in Topeka, Kansas is their home race. Herzog expects to have over 250 employees and customers in attendance for their support of the Pedregon racing teammates.

Last weekend saw many gains for the K-LOVE team. The K-LOVE Radio machine went down the track the first three runs with the fastest time a 4.139 seconds, which yielded a year-best sixth place starting position.

The new Toyota body will feature the redesigned Herzog scheme that has a black and yellow safety/transportation theme. Herzog partners Summit Truck Bodies, Komatsu, Komatsu Care, and Diamond International will also be featured on the car.

Pedregon has had much prior success at the Heartland Park facility. He won three straight races from 2001 through 2003, and is also a two-time number one qualifier at the track.

"We are encouraged with our last event," said the two-time champion Pedregon. "Our new Toyota body will be an improvement in aerodynamics and lighter weight which comes at a good time now that the hot tracks are upon us."
