Tony Pedregon Race Day Wrap Up

MORRISON, Colo. (July 17, 2005) -- Tony Pedregon, driver of the Q Racing Nitro Funny Car, took a chance on the starting line in his first round match with Del Worsham during today's Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals at Bandimere Speedway.

But Pedregon red lit and watched as Worsham's 5.227-second elapsed time at 292.52 mph advanced him to the next round.

"Sometimes you need to be aggressive out there," said Pedregon, who went red by a mere .003 of a second. "It was a little too much though. We made a couple of good runs this weekend and I really thought we had a good set up for today.

"As a team, we adapted well to the conditions in a short period of time," Pedregon continued. "That's a testament to this team. We should be ready for Seattle where we get back to sea level."
