Cruz Pedregon is the No. 1 qualifier in the Funny Car category at the Amalie Oil NHRA Gatornationals. If he can pull this off, it would be his fourth straight No. 1 qualifier from this event.

“I wish I could tell you because I would do it at all tracks,” Pedregon said. “It just works out that way. There’s been a few changes to the car mechanically even since last year. The four years in a row that we have managed to stay No. 1, all four of those were done with slightly different set ups on the car.”

Cruzer went 4.022 to get the top spot. Pedregon knows that these don’t always lead to wins.

“We would like that No. 1 stick and go some rounds this weekend,” Pedregon stated. “Wait, to heck with go rounds, let’s win.

“A No. 1 qualifier is great, but it doesn’t guarantee you victories, but I’d much rather be here in this position.”

Following Pedregon, Del Worsham is second. In his DHL Funny Car, he went 4.057.

Both Pedregon and Worsham are driving Toyota Camry‘s.

John Force
, the 65-year-old legend, is third. He went 4.075 in his Chevy Camaro Peak Blue Def Funny Car.
