Cruz Pedregon Qualifying Notes From Indy

CLERMONT, Ind. (Sept. 3, 2005) -- Cruz Pedregon and the Advance Auto Parts Nitro Funny Car wrapped up the second day of qualifying for the U.S. Nationals at Indianapolis Raceway Park.

Pedregon sits in the 20th position after posting a 5.010-second elapsed time at 233.64 mph during tonight's third session. His final qualifying pass tonight was a dramatic one.

"We got out of the groove and over-revved the engine," said Pedregon, after safely managing to stop the car and put out the in-car fire. "The team will thrash on the car and get it ready for tomorrow."

Pedregon takes on Gary Scelzi in the first round tomorrow's Skoal Showdown.
