K&N Filters SuperNationals
Enders runs career best in first-round loss
Englishtown, Sunday: Although Pro Stock driver Erica Enders reset her career best e.t. and mph, it was not enough to overcome reigning world champion Greg Andersons' 6.666 run at this weekend's 36th annual K&N Filters SuperNationals. The 21-year old rookie kept her chin up however, in spite of her first round defeat.
"Even having lost first round, we still had a really good weekend," Enders said. "Our heads are held high going into
"Our hot rod was pretty stout this weekend compared to the last races. I could feel when we had a good 60-foot because it hits so hard, it takes me a second to get my eyes back in my head. The car felt like there is power in it, and I could tell. I'm excited about that."
Earlier during Friday night qualifying, Enders lowered her personal best to a 6.743 at 204.76 mph which she then lowered to a 6.724 at 206.01 mph in today's first round. Enders credits her improved performance to the hard work and dedication of her crew.
"I owe it all to them," Enders said. "They are the ones working their butt's off to get us to the races. Through all the frustration of not qualifying they continue to work hard and not give up. Apparently that paid off this weekend. They're awesome, I love them, they're my boys.
