Anderson out to earn win at Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (September 13, 2007) -- As the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series moves to the second race in the Countdown to 4 segment of the championship battle, Greg Anderson moves from his shop in Mooresville, N.C., to Memphis Motorsports Park (MMP) for this weekend's 20th annual NHRA O'Reilly Mid-South Nationals.

The driver of the KB Racing LLC-owned, Summit Racing Equipment Pontiac GTO knows the importance this race holds if he is to win his fourth NHRA POWERade Pro Stock Championship.

Anderson, who is currently in second place (14 points behind the leader) among the eight drivers that are still in contention for this year's championship, knows that you must be at your very best at each of the four races that comprise the second segment of the Countdown to the Championship.

"This class is too good, too competitive, so we've got to be on top of our game at Memphis," said Anderson. "We didn't perform the way we would have liked at Indy, but Memphis is a whole other race. We always feel we can win and that hasn't changed. We've been working hard since Indy and feel that if the driver does his part that my Summit Pontiac can run with the best of them. Nobody is going to hand us a win; we've got to earn it."
