Tony Pedregon Las Vegas Wrap Up

LAS VEGAS (Oct. 23, 2005) -- Tony Pedregon and the Q Racing Nitro Funny Car fell in the first round of competition during today's ACDelco NHRA Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Pedregon smoked the tires at the start, ending his day early. Tony Bartone drove to a 4.970-second elapsed time at 255.73 mph.

"Track conditions were different from what we had in qualifying," said Pedregon, the 2003 POWERade Funny Car World Champion. "We lost traction early in the run. But overall, we continue to make strides with this team.

"We had a good weekend of qualifying and stayed consistent throughout," Pedregon added. "We know, every weekend, that the Q Racing entry will be in contention. That was no different this weekend."
