Greg Anderson wants to end the 2012 NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series season on a positive note by driving the Summit Racing Pro Stock Chevrolet Camaro into the winner’s circle at this weekend’s 48th annual Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals.
“You always try and make a statement at the last race and let everyone know you are a serious threat for next year,” the four-time Pro Stock champion said. “You hope to draw last blood with a victory and give everyone, including the guy who is going to become the champion, something to think about over the winter. A win here helps give you confidence going into the off season and puts some doubt into other drivers’ minds.”
Currently fifth in the Countdown to the Championship points standings coming into the season-ending Auto Club NHRA Finals, Anderson hopes to have some fun.
“It looks like it will be a fast track this weekend and we always like going fast—a Pro Stocker’s dream,” he said. “It should be a fun weekend and KB Racing should have two fast hot rods, including rolling out a new engine in my car.
“And unlike the last two races, I’m looking forward to running to the finish line and not pulling my chutes early,” Anderson said, referring to attempts to position himself in the past two races to help teammate Jason Line, then challenging for the championship.
