Greg Anderson wants a turnaround at Denver

MORRISON, Colo. (July 11, 2007) -- Greg Anderson hopes the struggles of two first round losses in the last two races are behind him and that he will regain the performance that has him and his KB Racing LLC-owned, Summit Racing Equipment-backed Pontiac GTO on top of the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock point standings entering this weekend's 28th annual NHRA Mopar Mile-High Nationals.

"We need to get things turned around and soon," said Anderson, the three-time NHRA POWERade champion (2003-2005). "I have repeatedly said that I would rather be on top and have everybody else chasing me than to be one of the cars that is doing the chasing. That's where I want to be when the first segment of the Countdown is over. That's where I want to be when the second and the third segments are over too.

"To do this the driver needs to get back on track and we need to continue the performance advantage this KB Racing Summit Equipment Pontiac has enjoyed through out most of this season. With our performance the last couple of races, several teams have been picking up points. There are a lot of good cars breathing down my neck and I need to open the gap again starting right here at Denver and carrying on through the remainder of the Western Swing."

Anderson has won half of the races in the 12 events run thus far. At Bandimere Speedway, he has one win, that coming in 2004.

After 12 events, Anderson leads the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock standings with 1,029 points, which also puts him in the lead for the first segment -- Countdown to Eight -- of the Countdown to the Championship.
