Jason Anderson was definitely not happy the Saturday night after A2 when he learned of his penalty docking him two positions. However, not unlike a Professional Quarterback in the NFL, you have to have short memory when adversity strikes and simply move forward. By Monday morning Jason was at the test track, back on his program and preparing for the short trip north to the bay area with the past behind him. It was evident in practice that his focus on the championship was unwavered. Anderson and Dean Wilson were blazing fast in practice. In fact, the duo posted lap times quicker than any of the 450's. The stage was clearly set for a battle between them.
Jason once again claimed victory in his heat race for the 4th consecutive time this year, in as many attempts. Exiting the first turn in the main event, both were near the front and fell in behind Justin Hill. The three front runners engaged in a fierce battle for the lead with nobody wanting to relinquish any ground. Finally Anderson moved by Hill, but also left the door open for Wilson who suddenly moved straight from 3rd to 1st. JA got in behind him and they began to negotiate lappers. He closed the gap considerably and got right on Wilson's rear tire who then experienced some sort of brief minor hiccup that looked to be mechanical. It was just enough to let Jason by and claim the last lap win again! It has become clear that the #17 can never be counted out of any race.
Jason Anderson: "Weekend was good. I had another last lap pass and (laughs) it was awesome. Three wins on the season so far and you can't beat that. I just need to stay in it and keep doing my thing."
