Duluth native Greg Anderson earned his first victory of the season by winning the Pro Stock title at the 40th annual Mile-High NHRA Nationals Sunday in Morrison, Colo.
In a final pitting Chevrolet Camaros, Anderson defended his 2018 Mile-High championship by beating Matt Hartford Sunday with an elapsed time of 6.950 seconds at 196.96 mph. Anderson’s teammate, Jason Line, a native of Wright, wound up fifth in the finishing order.
“It’s been a year since I’ve been able to win a race. The class is just tough,” said Anderson, who is second in the Pro Stock point standings this season behind Bo Butner. “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.”
Steve Torrence (Top Fuel), Tommy Johnson Jr. (Funny Car) and Andrew Hines (Pro Stock Motorcycle) were Sunday’s other Pro class winners.
