Summit Racing–Anderson a Top Half Player on First Day of NHRA Finals

Anderson a Top Half Player on First Day of NHRA Finals
Pomona, Calif., November 7, 2013 – Summit Racing Pro Stock driver Greg Anderson enjoyed an encouraging start on the first day of the final race of the season, the 49th annual Auto Club NHRA Finals. Anderson, of Mooresville, N.C., clocked a 6.576 at 210.37 mph to position himself as the provisional No. 7 qualifier in the only session allotted for the day. Friday and Saturday will bring three more total sessions at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona and thusly three more chances for Anderson to improve.
“That was a very smooth run for my Summit Racing Camaro,” said Anderson, a top-half qualifier at 19 of the previous 23 events in 2013. “But really, it was probably a little too safe. The racetrack was better than we thought it was going to be, and we think we could have run faster. But the good news is that now we know what we’ve got out there, so we’ll see if we can step on it tomorrow. It was a good, safe start.”
Anderson is optimistic for the remainder of the weekend, particularly because the weather forecast is so pleasant. Today was to be the warmest day, and each day after should become cooler and more inviting for the naturally aspirated factor hot rods.
“The forecast shows that the temperature is going to go down every day,” said Anderson. “That will make the racetrack a little bit better, and it will make the motors run a little bit better, too. Our Summit Racing Chevy Camaros should continue to get faster each run. Our first pass was a good tune-up run, and we expect we’ll be able to run better tomorrow. It’s going to be fun. The qualifying ladder is definitely going to change some before the weekend is over. We plan to be one of those cars moving up.”
