Anderson Earns Winner & Runner-up Honors At Moser Shootout!

ROCKINGHAM, N.C. – Jonathan Anderson qualified for the NHRA Moser Sportsman Shootout in two classes and advanced to the final round in both taking the honors as both Champion and runner up in the specialty event at this weekend’s NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series at Rockingham Dragway.

In a year long points battle, Anderson, Williamson, Ga., qualified both his ‘05 Pontiac Super Street and his ’09 dragster in Super Comp. He then took out Matt Weston (Super Street) and Michelle Furr (Super Gas) in round one. Also qualifying in two classes was Red Boy, Ala., racer Jeff Strickland who beat Kenneth Stott in round one with his stock entry but fell to Lindsey Barker in Top Dragster.

Anderson advanced both cars in round two then took out Jeff Longhany, who had beat Strickland in round 2, and Sandy Wilkins in the semifinals to set up a final round match up with himself. Anderson and his team staged both cars for the final round photo then celebrated in winner’s circle with both cars and the Moser Sportsman Shootout Championship trophy.
