Q Racing Pilot Looking For Third No. 1 at Memphis

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (Aug. 19, 2005) -- Q Racing's Tony Pedregon drove to the provisional 12th position after the first two sessions of qualifying for this weekend's O'Reilly Mid-South NHRA Nationals at Memphis Motorsports Park.

Pedregon traveled the Memphis quarter mile in 5.040 seconds at 294.05 mph, opening the weekend with a solid effort. The California native is going for his third number-one qualifier at Memphis Motorsports Park.

"We were looking for a little more on that run," Pedregon said. "The conditions were a little warmer, even at night, and we felt it had at least a 4.90 in it. We're going to see if we can move up a little tomorrow. I think we'll have a shot at it with the evening session."
