Summit Racing–Anderson to Face Nobile in St. Louis First Round

Anderson to Face Nobile in St. Louis First Round
Madison, Illinois, September 28, 2013 – Greg Anderson is ready to put qualifying behind him and bring his A-game to the table for the first round of eliminations at the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals at Gateway Motorsports Park near St. Louis. The four-time Gateway finalist last earned a win at the facility nestled in the shadow of the famous St. Louis arch in 2004, and he is good and ready to return to the winner’s circle this weekend in his Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro.
“I like this facility, and I really enjoy the fans here; they’re just great,” said the Mooresville, N.C.-based Anderson. “We didn’t give them the show we wanted to yet this weekend, but we’ve got tomorrow to make up some ground. Right now, everyone on the Summit Racing team is focused on preparing our Camaros for a better day. We’re digging in tonight, and we expect it to show tomorrow.”
Anderson and Team Summit pushed as hard as they could during qualifying to edge up the ladder. His best time of 6.566 at 210.47 mph was recorded in the third round of qualifying in the cool morning air on Saturday and was sixth-best of the session. Ultimately, Anderson’s time was good for a start from the No. 11 position with 20 drivers vying for one of 16 raceday spots.
In the first round, Anderson will race Vincent Nobile, a driver he most recently met in the first round in Charlotte just a couple of weeks ago. In their most recent meeting, Anderson got the nod with a stout 6.59 to his opponent’s traction troubled pass.
“There is no question about it, we will have a challenge tomorrow,” said Anderson, who entered the event 9th in the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Pro Stock standings. “But the Summit Racing team is eager to rise to the challenge. There is no time like the present to show what we are capable of.”
