Anderson saved the best for last, running an elapsed time of 6.731 seconds in the fourth and final qualifying session.

Starting from the No. 3 position, the Duluth, Minn. native, who now lives in the Charlotte area, will square off against two-time Pro Stock champion Jim Yates, who qualified No. 14 (6.757 seconds).
