Anderson looking for a hometown win

BRAINERD, Minn. -- Tomorrow Greg Anderson, driver of the Vegas General Construction Pontiac Grand Am, will enter eliminations at the 22nd annual Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals in the second position on the Pro Stock ladder. It was in the second session of qualifying where Anderson piloted his Grand Am to a 6.986 / 200.95 mph to take the Number 2 spot.

"We are right where we want to be," said Anderson. "We came into this race with a plan; a plan that will get us to the Brainerd winner's circle."

"We want to win this race probably more than any other race we have been at this season. This is my home race. All of our family and friends come to this race every year to cheer us on. There could be no bigger thrill in the world than to win your home race in front of all your family and friends. We lost in the final last year. This year we are determined to win one for the home team."

"We came here with a plan. We are half way there, now we just need to close the deal."

Eliminations at the 22 annual Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals will begin at 11:00 AM CST on Sunday Aug. 17.
