Summit Racing–Anderson Eager to Move up on Second Day of Summit Racing Event

Anderson Eager to Move up on Second Day of Summit Racing Event
Event:  7th annual Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals
Location: Summit Motorsports Park, Norwalk, Ohio
Day/Date: Friday, July 5, 2013
Summit Racing Pro Stock driver Greg Anderson made two decent runs on the first day of qualifying at his sponsor’s title event, the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio. For Anderson, however, decent isn’t even in the ballpark of where he and Team Summit want to be; the dedicated group wants to be at the top of the pack, and that is just what they’ll be reaching for on Saturday at Summit Motorsports Park.
Out of the box, Anderson’s Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro was well prepared to glide down the racing surface at one of the team’s most favored facilities, and Anderson soared to a 6.638 at 208.59 mph to grab the No. 5 spot at the conclusion of the first session of qualifying following a morning that was plagued with intermittent rain showers.
In the second session, Anderson again made another respectable pass but surprisingly slowed to a 6.644 at 208.97.
“The first run was decent and safe,” said Anderson, who finished the day in the No. 7 position. “We had to prove the racetrack was good, and we had to find out what it would hold. We did that, and unfortunately we just missed it on the second run. We were way too soft on the clutch.
“But that decision is behind us, and now we plan on making better decisions tomorrow. The good news is that the racetrack is great here at Summit Motorsports Park, just as you would expect it to be. Hopefully, the weather will be good for tomorrow and we can make up for tonight.”
Qualifying will continue on Saturday with two more passes before the fields are set for the 13th race of 24 on NHRA’s Mello Yello Series 2013 tour.
