Tony Pedregon Grabs 12th Qualifier
Q Racing Pilot to Face Del Worsham in Round One

BRISTOL, Tenn. (April 30, 2005) -- Tony Pedregon wrestled his Q Racing Monte Carlo Nitro Funny Car to the 12th-qualifying slot for tomorrow's O'Reilly Auto Parts Thunder Valley NHRA Nationals presented by Q at Bristol Dragway.

In his one and only qualifying run of the weekend, Pedregon kept his car off the wall at the top end to click off a 5.021-second elapsed time at 272.78 mph. As with yesterday's qualifying, rain cancelled today's second session.

"It dropped a cylinder at the top end," Pedregon said. "It was close to the wall, but I knew where I was on the track. I'm just happy we were able to make a decent run and get in the field. We have some data for tomorrow and it should be a good day."

Pedregon has a round one match up with Del Worsham tomorrow.
