Anderson Does It Again In Dallas

CHICAGO, Ill. -- Today at the 18th annual O'Reilly Auto Parts Fall Nationals in Dallas, Texas, for the 12th time this season Greg Anderson has qualified Number 1.

In the Saturday afternoon session of qualifying, Anderson drove his Pontiac Grand Am to a 6.826 / 203.11 mph to take the top spot on the Pro Stock eliminations ladder.

"Pro Stock racers love to come to the Texas Motorplex," said Anderson of Charlotte, NC. "This place is made for Pro Stock racing, and this weekend is no exception.

"This Vegas General Construction team did their job today. We made four good runs today. We improved with every pass and the result is that we ended up on top.

"We come to every race with the goal of qualifying on top and winning races. In that respect, we have exceeded every goal we have set for ourselves this year. Qualifying Number 1 twelve times in one year is more than I could have envisioned at the start of this season, but as good as my team is, I am not surprised.

"I am looking forward to tomorrow. Our ultimate goal of winning the Pro Stock championship is just a couple of rounds away, but our first priority is to get past round one.

"Hopefully, tomorrow we can make four more good passes. If everything works out tomorrow night we will take home two trophies; one for the race, and one for the championship."

Eliminations at the 18th annual O'Reilly Fall Nationals will begin at 11:00 AM CST on Sunday Oct. 12.
