Summit Racing Equipment’s Greg Anderson is the provisional No. 1 Pro Stock qualifier on Friday night at the 31st annual NHRA SpringNationals at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas. He set both ends of the track record after going 6.492 at 213.00 mph.
Anderson is looking to pick up his third straight No. 1 qualifier on Saturday. If he’s able to do that, it’ll be his 96th career No. 1 qualifier.
“You don’t get conditions like this but maybe once or twice every year, if you’re lucky,” said Anderson, who was No. 1 in Houston in 2004 and 2016. “It just puts a smile on your face, and you lick your chops. We don’t have a supercharger where we can influence the air and speed up the blower if we have bad conditions outside. We’re just dependent on what Mother Nature gives us. These are the conditions that Pro Stock racers love.
“This was a great day for me, and I’ve got a bracket car out there. I’m really happy about it. If the forecast for [Saturday] holds off and the rain doesn’t come, it’s going to be cool conditions again, and you won’t see a lot of sun – if any. This deal is not over, the top spot is not secure, but the bottom line is that we’ve got a great car. It’s like money in the bank. Now we don’t go up there conservative. You can go for broke, you go up there and try to run faster because you’ve got nothing to lose.”
Elite Performance and Jegs.com-backed Jeg Coughlin Jr. is the provisional No. 2 qualifier. He went 6.504 at 212.36 mph.
Gray Motorsports-backed Tanner Gray is the provisional No. 3 qualifier. He went 6.507 at 211.99 mph.
Mountain View Tire-backed Vincent Nobile is the provisional No. 4 qualifier. He went 6.513 at 212.29 mph.
Summit Racing Equipment-backed Jason Line is the provisional No. 5 qualifier. He went 6.518 at 211.99 mph.
