ENGLISHTOWN, NJ — Summit Racing Equipment driver Greg Anderson loves to come to Old Bridge Township Raceway Park. Anderson showed again why he loves this track so much.
For the eighth-time in his career, Anderson has won the NHRA Summernationals. This is his third straight win at the track.
Anderson won the Pro Stock final with a 6.613 at 210.44 mph pass. Vincent Nobile, who is from nearby New York, went 6.665 at 210.21 mph.
He dedicated this Wally to his son, who graduated from high school on Saturday. Anderson had a world-wind day as he traveled from New Jersey to North Carolina to be there early in the morning, before coming back — and missing both qualifying sessions on Saturday.
“It certainly was a tough weekend but everything worked out for us, but this Wally is going to my son for getting through high school,” Anderson said. “This track has been magical for me, I have a lot of great memories here. To win eight times here makes it a pretty special place.”
Prior to this final round, Nobile and Anderson were 12-12 against each other. However, in the final round, Nobile held a 1-0 advantage.
Nobile had the starting line advantage. Then, Anderson was able to make up the time as the two approached the Christmas tree — and never trailed as the two went down the track from there.
Anderson won by 0.0362 or approx. 11 feet. This is his 88th career win — and the second of the season.
