One week ago, Summit Racing Equipment Pro Stock driver Greg Anderson lost to his KB Racing teammate in the final round. Fast forward one week, Anderson was back in the final round facing another teammate.

Anderson went 6.571 at 210.73 mph for the holeshot win in the final round of the sixth annual AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Ill. He defeated the other Summit Racing Equipment driver Jason Line, who went 6.545 at 211.26 mph.

This is Anderson’s third win this season. It’s the second straight KB Racing win in the Countdown to the Championship, as Bo Butner won the Dodge NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway in Mohnton, Pa.

In addition, this is Anderson’s 89th career win. He’s also the Countdown to the Championship points leader, as well.

“It’s hard to win out here,” Anderson said. “I knew I was in deep in the final and knew it was going to take a stroke of luck, to be honest with you, to win it.

“I’d had a great race car, but didn’t have the total package. It’s been an up-and-down kind of year, but you have to peak going into the playoffs and obviously, I have.”

Prior to the final round, Anderson held a 41-33 advance over Line. He also had a 19-16 final round advantage, as well.

Anderson got off of the starting line first and powered down the track first. He won by 0.0031 seconds, or approx. 12 inches.

He now leads the Countdown to the Championship by 3 points over Butner.
