Greg Anderson Grabs 97th NHRA Pro Stock Victory, Ties Warren Johnson For Most In Pro Stock History

“I was absolutely shocked that the win light came on. There’s been so many races in a row where it simply wouldn’t come on,” said Anderson. “You think you have everything going well and the light just doesn’t come on in the final round. What a great, great feeling. There’s nothing better than when that win light comes on. It was a huge day to finally tie Warren. I learned so much from him and it’s kind of a cool story. Now I get a chance to try and beat him, and we’re going to Charlotte with a chance to break that record."

“It’s great to start the playoffs with a win. There’s a lot of great cars in the class, but I think we know deep down that Erica is going to be the one you’re going to have to beat if you want to win a championship,” Anderson said. “To lock horns with her in the final round, she doesn’t make mistakes. We just finally did a little bit better job and we’ll take it. I’m so proud of this team and I’m having a blast. I’m 60 years old and I’m having more fun than I’ve ever had in a race car.”
