Is Greg Anderson the new King of the Mountain? It would appear like so.

He took the crown from former competitor Allen Johnson, who used to dominate on Thunder Mountain. For the second straight year, Anderson won at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colorado.

Anderson defeated Matt Hartford in the final round of the 40th annual Dodge Mile-High NHRA Nationals presented by Pennzoil. This was Anderson’s first win in one calendar year.

The Morresville, North Carolina native went 6.950 at 196.96 mph for the Wally. In the losing effort, the Scottsdale, Arizona native went 6.965 at 196.96 mph.

“It’s been a year since I’ve been able to win a race, and the class is just tough,” Anderson said. “It says a lot about the class and what it’s about, so I’m proud. The race car was great, just like it was a year ago out here. Obviously, my Summit Chevy loves this racetrack and loves racing at a mile high. It feels wonderful to get the job done and everybody did a great job. They were flawless [on Sunday.]”

Prior to this final round, Anderson had a 9-0 record against Hartford. However, this was the first-time they faced each other in the final round.

Anderson was quicker off of the Christmas tree. He was able to hold on for the win, as he won by 0.0133 seconds, or approx. 4 feet.

He now has 92 career wins. With this win, he is just five wins shy of tying “The Professor” Warren Johnson for the most Pro Stock wins of all-time.
