Cruz Pedregon Grabs Eighth After Day One
The Advance Auto Parts Team Looking For Another Top-Half Effort

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (Aug. 19, 2005) -- Cruz Pedregon and the Advance Auto Parts Nitro Funny Car entry opened this weekend's Mid-South NHRA Nationals at Memphis Motorsports Park in the eighth position.

Even though the second session was completely under the lights, heat still played a big factor. Pedregon, the 1992 POWERade Funny Car World Champion, completed a pass of 4.993 seconds at 301.20 mph.

"It was a pretty good run tonight," Pedregon said. "The heat made it a little tougher to get traction out there, but the team did a great job of making adjustments and adapting. We'll see about tomorrow because we want to stay in the top half."
