By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Summit Racing Equipment has put on a good show so far in the backyard of team owner Ken and Judy Black. Both Greg Anderson and Jason Line have the top two spots in Pro Stock. 

Anderson is the No. 1 qualifier at the 20th annual Dodge NHRA Finals presented by Pennzoil on Saturday at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada. The North Carolina native went 6.601 at 206.73 mph.

This is Anderson’s second No. 1 qualifier of his 2020 campaign. In addition, he has 106 No. 1 qualifiers in his outstanding career.

“This is huge,” Anderson said. “We love coming to Vegas, we love coming to Ken Black’s home track. It’s always been special to us, and we’ve created a lot of great magic here. We set the table today with our Summit Racing Chevys, and tomorrow is going to be a knock-down, drag-out brawl. I can’t wait. It’s going to be great drama. We’ve got two great hot rods, and that’s all we can ask for.”

His fellow North Carolina-based teammate Jason Line is the No. 2 qualifier. He went 6.635 at 206.39 mph.

Nitro Fish-sponsored Pro Stock driver Kyle Koretsky is the No. 3 qualifier. The Pennsylvania-based driver went 6.637 at 206.32 mph.
