Summit Racing–Anderson plans to make more special memories at Raceway Park

Anderson plans to make more special memories at Raceway Park
Mooresville, N.C., May 28, 2014 – Summit Racing Pro Stock driver Greg Anderson holds a distinct honor at Old Bridge Township Park in Englishtown. As the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing tour kicks off this weekend’s 45th annual Toyota NHRA Summernationals, Anderson will stand as the Pro Stock driver to have earned the most wins at the venerable facility. His five victories at Raceway Park are the most of any in the factory hot rod category, and it’s an honor that Anderson hopes to keep to himself for as long as possible.
The battle is one that may appear great to an outsider as Anderson got a late start this season following heart surgery and is working his way back into having a happy racecar. However, Team Summit has long held an advantage in Englishtown, and this weekend could very well be the time for a turnaround for a driver who possess 74 national event wins and four NHRA Pro Stock championships.
“We love that race, that’s for sure,” said Anderson, who has been to six final rounds at Raceway Park and has claimed four low qualifier awards there. “The last time I won was there, and that was two years ago. It’s time for me to get back to the winner’s circle, and I just think this would be the perfect place to do that.”
Anderson’s most recent win in Englishtown was an exceptional victory as it occurred at the very race where he slid into the driver’s seat of his first brand new Chevrolet Camaro. The car was brand new, but Anderson had no trouble adapting and had the honor of claiming the first win in a new generation Pro Stock Camaro in 2012. The win was made even more special as it also marked the 100th win for team owner Ken Black and KB Racing, and it occurred in an all-Summit Racing final round with teammate Jason Line in the opposite lane.
“That was a very special win – it was magical,” said Anderson, who is 15th in the standings and looking to break into the top 10 in the Pro Stock points. “When I finally get back to winning again, it will be just as magical, and I don’t see why that can’t or shouldn’t happen here this weekend. This is my new racing career; this is my fresh start. I can’t think of a better place to make another special memory. It’s time to get it done.”
