Pedregon loves Dallas track
Dallas, prerace: Former NHRA champion Tony Pedregon and his Q Torque Power Funny Car team head to the Texas Motorplex this weekend for the21st annual O'Reilly NHRA Fall Nationals. With three wins in 2006, Pedregon is currently fourth in points in the NHRA POWERade Funny Car division, and is in position to make a run for the 2006 world championship.
Billy Meyer’s revolutionary all-concrete supertrack, Texas Motorplex, observed its 20th anniversary last season, celebrating two decades of high performance and even higher drama. The only all-concrete quarter-mile on the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series schedule allows crew chiefs the opportunity to unleash horsepower with little restraint, which guarantees explosive performances, sometimes in more ways than one. The event’s position on the schedule, as the fourth-to-last race on the annual tour, makes it a strategically key race in the battle to the finish for NHRA POWERade world championships.
"I won the race and the $100,000 Winston No Bull Challenge in 1999, so Dallas holds some good memories for me," Pedregon said. "It's a big Hispanic market, and I'm always excited about racing there. Texas Motorplex is the original supertrack - it's all concrete. Given the right conditions, it could be one of the fastest on the circuit and will compliment the horsepower our Q Power car makes. I'm looking forward to Dallas as we're in the homestretch of the season, and hope to finish our 2006 season strong, starting with a win this weekend."
