Anderson qualifies No. 8
Looks for win No. 5 at Columbus tomorrow
KIRKERSVILLE, Ohio (May 20, 2006) -- Anderson, who has earned five No. 1s this year prior to this weekend's NHRA Pontiac Performance Nationals presented by Summit Racing Equipment, qualified No. 8 at this year's event.
The Duluth, Minn.-native, who now lives in the Charlotte, N.C. area, has won here at National Trail Raceway for the last four years (2002-2005) and will be going after win No. 5 when eliminations begin tomorrow. A win will tie Anderson with Pro Stock legend Bob Glidden, who put together a streak of five consecutive wins from 1979-1983. But Anderson knows it will take an all-out effort to win another at National Trail Raceway.
"To win here at Columbus, we've got to make our Summit Racing Pontiac faster," said Anderson. "That last run was the first clean pass. The scoreboard said we've didn't go very quick or fast. We've got to figure out why. We'll put our heads together and be ready for tomorrow."
In the opening round of eliminations, Anderson will face off against Richie Stevens, Jr., who qualified No. 9 running a pass of 6.696-seconds.
Anderson, behind the wheel of the KB Racing LLC/Summit Racing Equipment Pro Stock Pontiac GTO, begins his quest for the Pontiac Performance Nationals Pro Stock title on Sunday, May 21, with eliminations for all classes beginning at 11 a.m. All times are local Columbus time (ET) and subject to change at anytime.
