Driver Prepares For Saturday Qualifying

KENT, Wash. (July 22, 2005) -- Cruz Pedregon and the Advance Auto Parts Nitro Funny Car completed the first two rounds at Pacific Raceways today qualifying in the 11th spot.

Pedregon recorded a solid 4.971-second elapsed time at 277.94 mph during the first pass of the day. The California resident is pleased that today's qualifying pass beat last year's effort of 5.031 seconds.

"Today's conditions at Pacific Raceways were very different from last year," said Pedregon. "We ran more conservatively than necessary to make sure we made it down the track and gather as much data as possible.

"We'll try to move up the qualifying field tomorrow, but the goal is to be in Sunday's eliminations. Wes Cerny (crew chief) and the Advance Auto Parts team are looking forward seeing all their hard work pay off."
