Las Vegas, NV (October 21, 2003)-Cruz Pedregon and the Advance Auto Parts Funny Car Team are looking to continue their strong second half showing at the AC Delco Las Vegas Nationals Oct. 24-26.

Pedregon has made a charge in the second half of the season by making it to two Finals, two Semi-Finals, and one Quarter-Final. This was highlighted two weeks ago with a career-best elapsed time of 4.796 at 320.43 M.P.H. at Reading.

"Our team has definitely made a strong showing and we look forward to finishing the season strong" said Pedregon. "The team has worked hard all year and we know we have a car that can win races. Our goal for the last two races is to test a few things for next season, but not lose sight of winning rounds. I am very proud of our accomplishments this year and know this will only improve going into 2004."

Cruz currently is 11th in points, only 32 points out of 10th place and 59 points from seventh place.

This weekend's schedule: Nitro Qualifying sessions begin at 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. Saturday's sessions will be at 12:30 and 3:30 p.m. and Sunday's eliminations start at 11 a.m.
