Tony Pedregon Moves Up to Second Qualifying Position

POMONA, Calif. (Nov. 4, 2005) -- Tony Pedregon, pilot of the Q Racing Nitro Funny Car, continues his consistent qualifying performances heading into this weekend's Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals at Pomona Raceway.

Pedregon, who placed in the second-qualifying spot, drove to a 4.710-second elapsed time at 329.99 mph during today's second session, improving on his 4.778-second pass at 322.58 mph set yesterday.

"I think one of the advantages we'll have tomorrow is that we already have two good runs under our belts," Pedregon said. "To have a strong run was the game plan for today and the car performed very close to what we wanted. Tomorrow's conditions will dictate whether we'll shoot for the number one spot, but the strategy is to be smart and plan for Sunday.

"Also, it is good to run side-by-side with your brother (Cruz Pedregon)," Pedregon continued. "The runs were just thousands of a second apart and we both are in the top three."
