Tony Pedregon First Day Qualifying Results

Houston, TX, April 16, 2004 -- The first day of qualifying was completed today for the NHRA Nationals at Houston Raceway Park. Defending race champion Tony Pedregon, drove his Quaker State Chevrolet Camaro to an elapsed time of 5.034 seconds at 291.01 mph to qualify 11th.

"The car was on a decent run until I had to pedal it once and then it still was able to put up a 5.03 second pass," said Pedregon. "We'll get it straightened out tomorrow and work towards moving up into the top-half of the field."

The final two qualifying sessions are scheduled for Saturday at 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. Final eliminations are slated for Sunday at 11:00 a.m.

Due to a programming change, Saturday's NHRA qualifying show on ESPN2 has been rescheduled for 1-3 a.m. (ET). Final eliminations will air at 5-7 p.m. (ET) on Sunday as originally scheduled.
