Summit Racing Equipment-sponsored Greg Anderson ended a long winless streak last Sunday at Bandimere Speedway on the mountain in Morrison, Colorado. On Saturday, Anderson picked up his second straight No. 1 qualifier at the Toyota Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, California.

Anderson picked up his ninth No. 1 qualifier of the season with his 6.515 at 211.16 mph pass during Friday’s two qualifying sessions. The points leader also picked up his 102nd No. 1 qualifier of his career, which ties him with the late Bob Glidden for the third-most all-time.

He also clinched his spot in the Countdown to the Championship, as well.

“It’s just a heck of an honor to tie that record,” Anderson said. “We try every day to set records and break records, and win races. It feels great to be tied with (Glidden), and I’m pretty happy with that. The depth in this class is deeper than it has ever been and there’s just zero room for error anymore, but that’s what is great about it. I feel it’s the ultimate challenge in racing.”

Anderson will face Joey Grose in the first-round of eliminations. Grose went 6.733 at 205.82 mph.

Summit Racing Equipment-sponsored Jason Line, who was defeated by Anderson in the All Summit final round at Bandimere Speedway, is the No. 2 qualifier. He went 6.517 at 212.49 mph.

Line will face Steve Graham in the first-round of eliminations. Graham went 6.643 at 207.82 mph.

Team Summit-powered Deric Kramer is the No. 3 qualifier. He went 6.524 at 211.43 mph. He’ll face New Jersey native Alan Prusiensky, who went 6.639 at 209.07 mph in his Dodge Dart.

Reigning Pro Stock Champion and Team Summit-powered Bo Butner is the No. 4 qualifier after he went 6.526 at 211.89 mph. Butner will face Fitzgerald USA/Gas Monkey Energy’s Alex Laughlin in the first round of eliminations after he went 6.603 at 209.10 mph.

Elite Performance/Jegs.com-sponsored Jeg Coughlin Jr., who snapped a four-year winless drought earlier this season, is the No. 5 qualifier after he went 6.530 at 212.03 mph. Coughlin Jr. will face Fernando Cuadra in the first-round of eliminations after he went 6.572 at 209.79 mph.
