Anderson On The In Indy

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Today at the 49th annual Mac Tools US Nationals Greg Anderson has once again placed his Vegas General Construction Pontiac Grand Am on the top of the Pro Stock ladder. In the Saturday evening session of qualifying Anderson drove his Grand Am to a 6.799 / 202.61 mph, to take the number 1 position.

"It feels wonderful to be on the pole here in Indy," said Anderson of Charlotte, NC. "This is the most prestigious race of the year. To have both team cars in the field feels wonderful. We are on the pole tonight but I don't expect it to hold.

"We knew going into the last session that there was .010 of a second in the left lane. We left some on the table in the first session so I knew that we could pick it up in the night session. I got out there and the car wheel stood a little bit, and became loose on the top end.

"It was a good run, but I am not a fool. Kurt (Johnson) is just a whisper behind us. To keep the pole I know that I will need to be on my 'A' game tomorrow. We have two more sessions tomorrow; this thing is not over."

Qualifying at the 49th annual Mac Tools US Nationals will continue on Sunday August 31. Eliminations will take place on Monday Sept. 1 at 11:00 AM CST.
