Q Racing Driver Awaits Bazemore

Brainerd, Minn. (August 13, 2005) - Tony Pedregon maneuvered the Q Racing Nitro Funny Car to the eighth position for this weekend's NHRA National Event at Brainerd International Raceway.

Pedregon clocked a 4.791-second elapsed time at 323.74 mph during Yesterday's first session. This performance comes behind of Pedregon's No. 1 qualifying effort during the Fram Autolite NHRA Nationals at Infineon Raceway two weeks ago.

"We are glad to be in the top half of the field," Pedregon said. "The Q Racing car has plenty of horsepower, tomorrow we will pull it when we need it. My crew is going to do their job setting up the car for Sunday's conditions - similar to today's - and I will do mine driving."

Pedregon will face qualifier No. 6, Whit Bazemore, during the first round of Sunday's eliminations.
