Pedregon Makes Sure Car is in Top Condition for 'The Strip'

Las Vegas, Nev. (April 16, 2005) - After one more day of qualifying at The Strip At Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Tony Pedregon will start from the fifth spot during tomorrow's NHRA SummitRacing.com Nationals.

Pedregon's Friday night pass of 4.813 seconds at 318.92 mph kept the Q Racing Monte Carlo Nitro Funny Car in a good starting position for the last day of racing in Las Vegas. Saturday's higher temperatures kept the cars from running better speeds.

"We would have liked to qualify better," said Pedregon. "We have recovered from the last two races, (Crew Chief) Dickie Venables, and I know we can race anyone, anytime. We have a good car and good products to back us up.

"For tomorrow, we plan to polish off all of our electronics and change a couple of ignition switches. My team is going to through all the details of the car thoroughly and make sure that everything is in order. We will be ready to race," concluded Pedregon.

Pedregon will face Whit Bazemore, No. 12 qualifier, in the first round of eliminations, which begin at 11 a.m.
