Tony Pedregon Opens Weekend in Fourth
Q Racing Solid in First Day of Reading Qualifying

MOHNTON, Pa. (September 16, 2005) -- Tony Pedregon, driver of the Q Racing Nitro Funny Car, captured the fourth qualifying position after two rounds of the 21st annual NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway.

Pedregon started the Reading weekend clicking off a 4.801-second elapsed time at 318.84 mph during the late pass of the day. The 2003 NHRA Champion put together two solid runs, demonstrating the Q Racing Team's hard work during the last two weeks.

"Tomorrow's weather conditions will determine how we decide to run," Pedregon said. "There is still a lot of horsepower left in the Q car, and I feel we have not yet scratched the surface of what we are capable of doing.

"I definitely do not take qualifying for granted, but I keep my focus on Sunday's rounds. We've worked hard to bring together performance and consistency and it is beginning to pay off."
