Cruz Pedregon Qualifying Notes From Indy

CLERMONT, Ind. (Sept. 2, 2005) -- Cruz Pedregon, driver of the Advance Auto Parts Nitro Funny Car, completed his first round of qualifying today for this year's U.S. Nationals at historic Indianapolis Raceway Park.

Pedregon drove to a 5.056-second elapsed time at 233.16 mph, starting off in the 19th slot. He talked about his day.

"We were on a very good run," said Pedregon, the 1992 NHRA POWERade Funny Car World Champion. "We dropped a cylinder and lost momentum at the top end. Conditions were pretty good tonight, and they should be similar -- at least for the evening session -- tomorrow."
