Cruz Pedregon Memphis Eliminations Wrap Up

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (Aug. 21, 2005) -- Cruz Pedregon and the Advance Auto Parts Nitro Funny Car fell in the first round of eliminations during today's Mid-South NHRA Nationals at Memphis Motorsports Park.

Pedregon held an advantage off the starting line (.096 - .113), but he lost traction and drove to a 5.427-second elapsed time at 253.99 mph. Force recorded a 5.192-second pass at 279.90 mph.

"We had a good start, but it got away from us at about half track," Pedregon said. "Sometimes you wish you could have a pit stop halfway down the track to change set ups.

"We're real optimistic about Indy though," Pedregon continued. "We're going to test on Tuesday and Wednesday and get these cars ready for 'The Big Go.'"
