Anderson situated well but eager to improve before field is set at Texas Motorplex

DALLAS, Texas, October 16, 2015 – Greg Anderson made two good passes in his red Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro on the first day of qualifying at the 30th annual AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals at Texas Motorplex, but the four-time Dallas winner is eager to get back in the seat and really get after it on the second day of the event. Anderson is currently No. 4 in the qualifying order.

In the first session of qualifying, Anderson raced to a 6.535-second pass at 212.03 mph that was greater than the both ends of the previous track record. At the conclusion of the first round of qualifying, his Summit Racing Chevy held the new track record for speed.

The later round on Friday was delayed due to on-track mishaps in another category, and it pushed the round later into the evening while the already-dialed in cars sat in the staging lanes.

The good news was that Anderson improved to a 6.499 at a big speed of 213.13. But the bad news was that everyone else also improved. Anderson remained No. 4 in the line-up.

“It was certainly a good start, and now we know what we’re dealing with in regard to the racetrack,” said Anderson. “The racetrack is great, but we just underestimated it. We were conservative today and made two smooth runs that weren’t quite quick enough. We’ll have to be more aggressive tomorrow, and I’m actually excited because the weather is supposed to be better yet. Tomorrow should be faster, and hopefully we’ll be able to get after it. It’s a great racetrack.”
