Summit Racing–Anderson Plans Return to Winner’s Circle at Summit Racing Nationals

Anderson Plans Return to Winner’s Circle at Summit Racing Nationals

MOORESVILLE, N.C., June 30, 2015 – This weekend’s 9th annual Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals at Norwalk’s Summit Racing Motorsports Park bring Greg Anderson and his determined KB Racing crew back to a facility that has been an anchor point in past seasons. Perhaps a key to their accomplishments in Norwalk is that longtime partner Summit Racing Equipment is the title sponsor of the thrilling event as well as the wildly popular racetrack and, of course, the lightning-fast Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaros driven by Anderson and his teammate, Jason Line.

“We’re going in there on a very high note,” said Anderson, who won two of the most recent three races on 2015 tour and was a finalist in four of the past five. He enters the Norwalk event just 14 marks out of first place.

“With the performance the Summit Racing team has shown this season and what we’ve been able to accomplish at Summit Motorsports Park in the past, I’m really looking forward to showing off in front of the bosses with my new racecar. I’ve got a new lease on the racing life, so to speak, and these are very exciting times for us.”

Anderson’s success in Norwalk at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals began in 2007, the first year that NHRA sanctioned a national event at the pristine, fan-friendly facility. Out of the gate, Anderson and Team Summit were fast, and that year they earned the first No. 1 qualifier award up for grabs. In 2008, Anderson followed up with a win at the event and teammate Jason Line was the No. 1 qualifier, and in 2009, they switched places; Anderson again sat at the top of the field at the conclusion of qualifying and it was Line in the winner’s circle on Sunday.

The 2010 Summit Nationals, however, will forever be etched in the collective memory of the Ken Black-owned Summit Racing-sponsored Pro Stock team. That year, Anderson pulled off a feat most will only ever dream of when he won the K&N Horsepower Challenge on Saturday and then raced to the winner’s circle at the main event on Sunday for a double-up that made the history books. The race in Norwalk was a turning point for Anderson that year, and he went on to win his fourth world championship.

“We’ve had some good times there at Summit Motorsports Park, and that is certainly the best so far, but this weekend we need to make another really good memory,” said Anderson. “I’m glad Summit Racing Equipment has their name on that particular racetrack, because it is certainly one that the KB Racing team enjoys. We love going there; it’s just a great atmosphere all weekend long, starting off with the Summit Racing Equipment company picnic on Wednesday. It’s neat when they come out and support you like the folks from Summit Racing do. We look forward to this race every year, and we plan to bring our A-game.”
