Q Racing Nitro Funny Car Looking For Another Winner's Circle Visit

LAS VEGAS (Oct. 22, 2005) -- Tony Pedregon and the Q Racing Nitro Funny Car collected the sixth position for tomorrow's ACDelco NHRA Nationals at the Strip at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Pedregon, the 2003 POWERade Funny Car World Champion, clicked off a 4.766-second elapsed time at 317.12 mph, setting up a round one match up with Tony Bartone.

"We thought we could have gone a little quicker on that last one," Pedregon said. "But we are definitely one of the quickest and most consistent cars out here now. We are a threat to win every weekend.

"That's how I look at our chances for tomorrow as well," Pedregon added. "(Crew chief) Dickie Venables and the team have this car set up for any conditions now. We should have favorable weather for tomorrow, so I'm looking forward to it."
