Anderson continues to build for next season
POMONA, Calif. (November 7, 2006) -- For Greg Anderson, driver of the KB Racing LLC-owned, Summit Racing Equipment-sponsored Pontiac GTO and three-time NHRA POWERade champion, one of many keys to being a winning driver is being prepared.
At Las Vegas, Anderson unveiled a new Rick Jones-built Pontiac GTO. The reason is to be prepared for the 2007 season.
Having locked up second in the POWERade point battle, Anderson had nothing to lose. In fact, the extra two races might mean another championship for KB Racing LLC and Anderson.
The architect of four consecutive championships for KB Racing LLC, three for himself from 2003 to 2005 and this year for teammate Jason Line, Anderson plans to do everything he can to extent the winning trend.
That why the learning curve with the new RJ Pontiac will continue at the NHRA Auto Club Finals this weekend at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona (Calif.).
"You have to gain an edge on the competition somehow," said Anderson, "and this is just one small way that we are making sure that we are ready for next season.
"I could give you a hundred more things that we are working on, but I don't want to give away the things that we are trying. It's enough to say that I'm going to do everything in my power to have these Summit Pontiacs in the hunt to finish one-two again next year.
"I've had pretty good success at Pomona over the last few years and we hope to continue our winning ways here this weekend and use what we learn here for a quick start next season."
Anderson has four wins on the Auto Club Raceway at Pomona quarter-mile, two at the season-opening event (2004 and 2006) and two at the finals (2003 and 2004).
Qualifying for Anderson and his KB Racing / Summit Racing Equipment Pontiac GTO begins with one session each on Thursday and Friday scheduled for 1:30 p.m. and concludes with two additional sessions on Saturday at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Anderson begins his quest for the Auto Club Finals Top Fuel title on Sunday with eliminations for all classes beginning at 11 a.m. All times are local Pomona time (PT) and subject to change at anytime.
