PEDREGON LOOKS TO RIDE THE MOMENTUM INTO RICHMOND

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (October 3, 2007) -- Cruz Pedregon and his Advance Auto Parts NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series Nitro Funny Car team are riding a wave of momentum from several consistent, back-to-back runs while making it all the way to the final round against Tony Pedregon last weekend in Dallas. He is confident in the repeatability of the Advance Auto Parts Funny Car as his team heads for the Virginia Motorsports Park in Richmond, Va. for the this weekend's Torco Racing Fuels NHRA Nationals.

"I haven't had a car this consistent since my days in the McDonald's car," said Pedregon, the 1992 NHRA Nitro Funny Car World Champion.b^0x001cIt's a tribute to my crew chief, Rahn Tobler, and entire Advance Auto Parts team for providing me with a car capable of winning any of the remaining events on the schedule. As an owner and a driver, I'm proud of Advance Auto Parts and all the sponsors who have been with us every step of the way. Speaking of Advance Auto Parts, this is the one and only race in their home state and I would love to bring them a trophy for their offices in Roanoke, Virginia."
