Anderson flirts with first, claims No. 2
Englishtown, Saturday: Greg Anderson flirted with the top spot but settled for the No. 2 position on the final qualifying ladder for the 37th annual K&N Filters SuperNationals at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, N.J.
From the No. 1 elapsed time of Allen Johnson, a 6.645-second track record run, to the bump spot, a 6.686 second pass, held by Mark Pawuk, Anderson joins the quickest field in NHRA history. Also, Jim Yates, in a Pontiac GTO, set a track record speed of 208.17 mph during qualifying.
Anderson, driver of the KB Racing LLC-owned, Summit Racing Equipment-backed Pro Stock Pontiac GTO, clicked off a best pass of his four qualifying runs by running a 6.650 second pass in Saturdayís morning session.
Entering eliminations tomorrow, Anderson continues to lead the standings for the 2006 NHRA POWERade Pro Stock championship. In the opening round and for the second consecutive race, he is matched against Warren Johnson, who qualified No. 15 this race with a run of 6.680 seconds. Anderson worked for WJ for 12 years as a crew member, tuner and crew chief during four of Johnsonís six NHRA Pro Stock championships, before becoming a three-time Pro Stock champion himself.
