Summit Racing–Anderson plans to seize the opportunity to go fast at New England Nationals

Anderson plans to seize the opportunity to go fast at New England Nationals
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (June 18, 2014) – This weekend’s second annual Auto-Plus NHRA New England Nationals is set to be another exciting event on the 2014 NHRA tour, and Summit Racing Pro Stock driver Greg Anderson sees plenty of opportunity in returning to the newest thumbtack on the Mello Yello Series map. The sea-level location at New England Dragway could very well provide prime conditions for fast racing, and that is just what the doctor ordered for Anderson and his tireless crew.
“It was such a neat deal last year to get to race our Summit Racing Chevy Camaros at New England Dragway for the first time,” said Anderson. “We had a blast up there, and the crowd was humongous – of course that always gets you excited. The racetrack is still new to us, so we’re all looking forward to getting up there again. To tell you the truth, I can’t wait to go back. Those sea-level conditions are what we Pro Stock racers particularly love. If everything goes as planned, you could see some great racing up there.”
Last season in Epping, Anderson qualified in the No. 6 position and won his first-round match with Steve Kent before being stopped by eventual finalist Mike Edwards in the quarterfinals. For Anderson, a return to Epping means another opportunity to gain the points he needs to push his way into the top 10 in NHRA’s Mello Yello Series Pro Stock points. Anderson is currently No. 13 in the standings and just five rounds away from that No. 10 spot.
The driver of the white Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro came into the season at a disadvantage after missing the first five races of the year, but he quickly made up ground and gave himself a fighting chance by visiting two final rounds in the first four races. Anderson’s performance in Englishtown earlier this month was his best so far this season; his second final round appearance of the year complemented a top-half qualifying effort. The KB Racing team is headed towards Epping with heated intentions of getting their driver up where he needs to be.
“Any weekend could be the weekend that we really and truly see a tremendous turn towards excellence for this team,” said Anderson. “We have a great program, and we are constantly working to make it better – we just have to tap into what we know is there. That’s always the trick. We have to crack the case and figure it out, and then we’ll be fast again. As a team, we’re seeing that we can be fast; we just have to keep digging. Hopefully, this weekend in Epping will be the weekend it all comes together. Once we really tap into it, there shouldn’t be any stopping us.”
