Humphreys Can't Catch Greg Anderson at Sonoma

SONOMA, Calif., July 27, 2008 -- Luck is a four-letter word Justin Humphreys has been uttering quite a bit lately . . . as in "we just don't have any (racing) luck."

Last week, for example, Humphreys raced Kurt Johnson in the first Pro Stock round at Seattle. He left the line first and led Johnson briefly before Johnson not only got around him but ran the quickest run of eliminations.

Sunday in the FRAM Autolite Nationals at Infineon Raceway, Greg Anderson's winning time of 6.619 seconds was fourth-best of the round while Humphreys' RaceRedi Dodge came in at 6.642 at 208.49 mph.

"We can't seem to get a break or a win light in our lane," said the exasperated driver from Monrovia, Md. "The car isn't bad, but it's not where we need to be to get back into the top 10."

Humphreys left California in 12th place in POWERade Series points with 559.

"It's getting down to the nitty-gritty for us," added Humphreys. "We need to win rounds in our next three races if we want to make the top 10."
