Cruz Pedregon Starts Off In Eighth
The Advance Auto Parts Nitro Funny Car Strong

LAS VEGAS (Oct. 21, 2005) -- Cruz Pedregon and the Advance Auto Parts Nitro Funny Car started this weekend's ACDelco NHRA Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the eighth position.

Pedregon, who logged a 4.809-second elapsed time at 323.50 mph during today's first session, was very optimistic.

"We made two solid runs today," said Pedregon, the 1992 POWERade Funny Car World Champion. "We dropped a cylinder early in that second run or we would have even been quicker.

"This car is really starting to come around," Pedregon continued. "We're very close to Tony's (Pedregon) car right now, which is starting to pay off on track as well."
