Duluth’s Anderson wins fourth race of season
Duluth native Greg Anderson won his fourth NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series pro stock race of the season and 78th of his career by beating rookie Drew Skillman in the final round Sunday of the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio.
Anderson’s Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro beat out Skillman’s Camaro by crossing the finish line in 6.592 seconds at 212.19 miles per hour. It was Anderson’s third career win at Norwalk.
The win allowed Anderson to retake the No. 1 spot atop the pro stocks point standings. He holds a 60-point lead over defending champion Erica Enders, who was upset in the first round this weekend.
“There is so much competition in this class,” Anderson said. “It is such a battle every weekend. It is so hard to win and it feels so good when you do win. I’m having a ball. It’s a dogfight every week. You feel fantastic at the end of the day if you can find a way to win, to conquer it. This is no less gratifying than it was with my very first win back in 2001.”
