Get out the broom….maybe

Pro Stock ace Greg Anderson in the Summit Racing Camaro is going for the western swing sweep.  Anderson picked up wins in Denver and Sonoma during the past two weekends.  Can he do it at The Place to Race?

Antron Brown and Ron Capps are the defending event champions in Top Fuel Dragster and Funny Car, respectively.  Can they win again this year?  To do it, Brown will have to get past Steve Torrence, who is absolutely killing it this season and has 572 point lead over second place Brown and Clay Millican.  In Fuel Funny Car, Robert Hight in the AAA Auto Club Camaro leads Tommy Johnson Jr., John Force, Jack Beckman and Capps in the point standings.  Don’t count out Capps; he knows how to get down The Place to Race scoring victories in both Funny Car and Top Fuel at the Kent track.
