Greg Anderson raced to his first Pro Stock victory of the season Sunday at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals and pulled off a Pro Stock Sweep by winning the K&N Horsepower Challenge. Larry Dixon, Tim Wilkerson and Matt Smith also were winners in their respective categories at the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series event at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park.
In winning the Pro Stock final, three-time world champ Anderson pocketed more than $125,000 for the weekend by sweeping today's eliminations and Saturday's K&N Horsepower Challenge all-star event, which includes a $25,000 double-up bonus from NHRA.

"This is beyond a dream weekend," said Anderson, who also swept both races in 2004. "I couldn't have even have dreamed anything this big before we came here this week. I just hoped and prayed that we came here with a good performance and functioned properly throughout the weekend and just had a slight chance of sneaking a few round-wins and maybe a lucky victory away, and we ended up sweeping the weekend and taking every doggone nickel they had to give. It's been a long time since we've had a weekend like this. I guess I've got to go back three or four years when we had a car that could do these things."
