ENNIS, Texas. (September 22, 2006) -- After the first day of qualifying and two of four qualifying sessions, Greg Anderson, driver of the KB Racing LLC/Summit Racing Equipment Pontiac holds the No. 1 qualifying position at the NHRA O'Reilly Fall Nationals presented by Castrol Syntec.

Anderson's best run came in Friday's second session when he covered the Texas Motorplex quarter-mile in 6.782 seconds at 203.83 mph.

Anderson's KB Racing LLC teammate Jason Line is qualified second at the end of today's two run. He ran a best elapsed time today of 6.788 seconds at a speed of 203.03 mph.

"My hat's off to the guys," said Anderson following today's two sessions. "They're doing a heck of a job with both cars, and they're giving Jason and me everything we could ask for to make this stretch run and give ourselves a shot. That's a tribute to the crew guys over there and to the engine guys back at the shop.

"I'm just lucky to be piloting that car. I'm happy, I'm lucky, and Jason's happy and he's lucky. We're two lucky guys out there and we're having fun out there, we're getting to play and knock heads with each other, and that's a lot of fun."

Anderson has done well at the Motorplex. He has been No. 1 qualifier twice (2003 and 2005) and has gone to two final rounds, winning both. He won over Jeg Coughlin in 2003 and over his teammate Jason Line last year.

Additionally, Anderson holds the Texas Motorplex track records for elapsed time (6.647 seconds) and speed (207.40 mph).

In the NHRA POWERade point battle Anderson, who holds the second position in the Pro Stock point standings, is trailing Line, who leads the point standing, by 59 points. Anderson knows that he still has five races to make up the difference.

Qualifying for Anderson and his KB Racing LLC/Summit Racing Equipment Pro Stock Pontiac GTO concludes with two additional Pro Stock sessions tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 23, at 12 noon and 3 p.m. Anderson begins his quest for the O'Reilly Fall Nationals Pro Stock title on Sunday, Sept. 24, with eliminations for all classes beginning at 11 a.m. All times are local Dallas time (CT) and subject to change at anytime.
