Greg Anderson takes over No. 1 as day two of qualifying ends

POMONA, Calif. (February 10, 2006) -- Greg Anderson, driver of the KB Racing LLC/Summit Racing Equipment Pro Stock Pontiac GTO, took over the top spot in Pro Stock after today's second day of qualifying at the 2006 season-opening NHRA CARQUEST Auto Parts Winternationals.

Anderson, the reigning and three-time NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champion, covered the Auto Club Raceway at Pomona quarter-mile in 6.665 seconds at 207.43 mph. His elapsed time was a track record, bettering the previous E.T. of 6.677 seconds.

"It was kind of embarrassing yesterday," said Anderson, who tried to drive through tire spin just off the starting line, followed by tire shake and immediately shut off his GTO in yesterday's first round of qualifying.. "I didn't want to start off the season like that. It was a lot better today. The guys did a heck of a job. They knew what to do and what screws to turn and I made a beautiful run."

Anderson's teammate, Jason Line, who led the field after yesterday's first day of qualifying, improved his elapsed time but dropped to the No. 6 position. Today, Line ran an elapsed time of 6.700 seconds at over 206 mph in his KB Racing LLC/Summit Racing Equipment Pontiac GTO.

For Anderson, qualifying ends tomorrow (Saturday) with two additional sessions at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Anderson begins his quest for the CarQuest Winternationals Pro Stock title on Sunday with eliminations for all classes beginning at 11 a.m. All times are local Pomona time (PST) and subject to change at anytime.
