Jonathan Anderson wins Super Comp at the NHRA Carolina Nationals to complete the season sweep at zMAX Dragway. Anderson also won the 4-Wide Nationals earlier this year.
CHARLOTTE – Division 2 stand out Jonathan Anderson won his second national event of the season at the recently completed NHRA Carolina Nationals. Anderson defeated Michelle Furr in the Super Comp final after winning the same class at the 4-Wide Nationals earlier in the season.
Competing in his final points-earning national event of the season, Anderson made the most of the opportunity. The win moved him into third place in the national standings.
Anderson kicked off eliminations with a double-breakout victory over Darrell Childress. He was .014 take nothing for the win after his 8.887 was closer to the index than Childress’ 8.884. This setup a heavyweight matchup with current points leader Ray Miller.
Miller left first by a “thou”, .011 to .012, but got behind at the stripe posting a losing 8.946 to Anderson’s quicker 8.916. Anderson benefitted from Colby Fuller’s red-light in round three to advance to the round of eight.
In round four, Anderson paired against Pro Stock Bike competitor Matt Smith. Jonathan advanced by the smallest margin when his .040 package was one thousandth better than Smith’s .041-pack. In the semifinals Anderson trailed Rick Stroud off the line, .026 to .019, but prevailed when his dead-on 8.903 forced Stroud under the 8.90 index.
Final round opponent Michelle Furr was appearing in her third national event final of the season. Although she posted an impressive .013 reaction time average through the first five rounds, Furr missed it in the final resulting in an untimely .039 light.
Anderson’s .013 take .017 in the final resulted in his fourth national event victory and completed the season sweep at zMax Dragway. The final box score showed Anderson’s 8.933 outlasting Furr’s 8.924 on a holeshot,
