Q Racing Team Looking For Consistency

ENGLISHTOWN, N.J. (June 17, 2005) --Tony Pedregon fueled his 'Q' Racing Nitro Funny Car to the No.7 qualifying position during Friday's K&N Filters SuperNationals at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park.

The 2003 NHRA Funny Car Champion was able to take advantage of the night's cooler conditions clicking off a 4.821-second elapsed time at 318.39 mph. The pass placed the Q Racing car in the top half of the field, setting the team up nicely for tomorrow.

"That was a good pass," Pedregon said. "We know the car is running well, we are pleased with the way it is performing. Our objective now is to be consistent. Once we have both variables, consistency and performance, we'll have a winning combination."

Dickie Venables, crew chief, elaborated on today's qualifying.

"It is very important for us to make it down the track in every run," Venables added. "We are being conservative because we need to collect as much data as possible. If you don't cover the track, you cannot get data. I am satisfied the 'Q' car put on two solid runs today that placed us in the top half of the field."
