LAS VEGAS (April 8, 2006) -- Greg Anderson topped the field for the fourth time this season, running a best of four qualifying sessions of 6.793 seconds to take the top spot in his KB Racing LLC/Summit Racing Equipment Pro Stock Pontiac GTO.

This race marks Anderson's fifth No. 1 at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and the 44th of his career. Also, Anderson and his teammate Jason Line have claimed 11 consecutive No. 1s dating back to the U.S. Nationals at Indy last year -- Anderson has eight of the 11, Line three.

"I'm very proud of the guys and the job they've done this weekend," said Anderson following qualifying. "We think my car is ready for tomorrow. My car is happy, at least in the left lane. We've had two good runs in that left lane and have done okay in the right lane. This was a great place to do it in front our great sponsor Summit and at the hometown of (team owner) Ken Black."

With qualifying over, Anderson now turns his focus on winning the Pro Stock class and claming the "Wally," emblematic of winning the NHRA SummitRacing.com Nationals.

In the opening round of eliminations tomorrow, Anderson will face Greg Stanfield, who bumped into the 16-car field at No. 16 during the final qualifying session. Stanfield's best of four qualifying session was a pass of 6.832 seconds.
