Cruz Pedregon Grabs Third In Vegas
The Advance Auto Parts Nitro Funny Car Awaits Round One

LAS VEGAS (Oct. 22, 2005) -- Cruz Pedregon, driver of the Advance Auto Parts Nitro Funny Car, took home the third-qualifying spot for tomorrow's ACDelco NHRA Nationals at The Strip at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Pedregon maneuvered his Advance Auto Parts entry to a 4.760-second elapsed time at 324.36 mph. He will take on Whit Bazemore in tomorrow's opening round of competition.

"We are here to qualify well and win races," said Pedregon, who bounced back from not qualifying at the Texas Motorplex two weekend's ago. "When you're as close to the edge as we are, you can go over sometimes. The car felt great on that last run and we've been pretty consistent this weekend. We feel good about our chances for tomorrow.

"We have a great team," Pedregon continued. "I'm so thankful for Advance Auto Parts and all of our great sponsors. They have stood behind us the entire season."
