Tony Pedregon Runs to U.S. Nationals Quarterfinals

CLERMONT, Ind. (Sept. 5, 2005) -- Tony Pedregon led the Q Racing Nitro Funny Car to the quarterfinals of today's 51st annual U.S. Nationals at Indianapolis Raceway Park.

Pedregon's 5.133-second elapsed time at 241.54 mph wasn't enough to beat out Scelzi's 4.891-second pass at 318.02 mph. To advance, Pedregon defeated Robert Hight in round one with a 5.030-second run at 294.18 mph.

"We got loose at about half track," said Pedregon, on his second-round race. "We were on a good run too. But this Q Racing team was really resilient this weekend.

"We were able to have success, even though we had a set back on Saturday morning." Pedregon added. "We established some consistency and this team has come together this weekend. I'm looking forward to Reading as we get into some cooler conditions as well."
