TONY PEDREGON AND THE Q TORQUEPOWER RACE TEAM REACH SECOND ROUND IN READING

READING, Penn. (October 2, 2006) -- Tony Pedregon and his Q TorquePower Race Team made it to the second round before falling out of competition at Maple Grove Raceway in Reading, Penn. in the Nitro Funny Car division during the NHRA Nationals this past weekend. Pedregon once again qualified in the top half of the field in Reading, in 6th, allowing him to continue to retain fourth place in the 2006 point standings.

"We were pleased with our first round run, although our expectations were to run quicker in the second round, as we had the setup for it," Pedregon explained of his race day in Reading. "But there was a little glitch. We are going to look at the data - it could be the fuel system or maybe something in the electronics. When everything clicks with this team, we're capable of winning. We'll put this in the books and look forward to taking what we have learned to Richmond. We'll try to maintain our top-half qualifying effort, but we'll just have to work a little harder at racing more consistently. Once we evaluate all of the data and locate this problem, we'll address it and try to put the Q TorquePower team in the winner's circle again."

NEXT RACE: October 6-8, 2006 -- NHRA Nationals, Virginia Motorsports Park, Petersburg, VA (near Richmond)
