...Greg Anderson of Antelope (Sacramento) passed cars when really only the leaders were doing the same as they worked traffic. What made that more impressive was the fact that Anderson's driving career in a sprint car was one race old. He tried Altamont last Saturday (April 17, 2004). Wendell and Sharon's 22 year-old boy has experience as a late model stock car driver on the Southwest Tour, as well as a lengthy career in quarter-midgets, karts, and legends cars. Most recently, Anderson took to North Carolina to run stock cars in hopes of being discovered. But now Anderson says it's all about the sprint cars. "The have way more power than you need", he stressed after winning his heat race. "This deal is all about finesse." Greg's Uncle's Johnny, Billy, and Bob were all sprint car drivers, as was his Dad.
