MILLINGTON, Tenn. (Aug. 21, 2005) -- Q Racing Nitro Funny Car driver Tony Pedregon was eliminated in the first round of today's O'Reilly Mid-South NHRA Nationals at Memphis Motorsports Park.

Pedregon jumped out on opponent Eric Medlen at the start (.079 - .135), but tire smoke slowed the Q Racing driver to a 6.146-second pass. Medlen crossed the line with a 5.109-second elapsed time at 284.21 mph.

"We lost traction and overpowered the track a little," Pedregon said. "It was tough out here all weekend because of the heat, and very few cars won out of that right lane today.

"We're going to spend a lot of time testing for Indy starting on Tuesday," Pedregon continued. "We'll try a few things and prepare" for the biggest race of the year."
