Fittingly, Greg Anderson, tied as the second-winningest Pro Stock driver in Indy, made his first NHRA national event final-round appearance at the 1999 Mac Tools U.S. Nationals presented by Lucas Oil, where he was runner-up to Warren Johnson. With his latest victory, he has taken the Indy Pro Stock title six times, which puts him in second place with W.J.; he trails only Bob Glidden's nine triumphs for the most factory hot rod victories at the fabled event.
2001 Greg Anderson scored his first U.S. Nationals victory with a 6.95 to 7.01 final-round win over Mark Osborne.
2003 For Anderson's second Indy win, Kurt Johnson red-lighted in the final; both drivers recorded 6.80 elapsed times.
2004 Kenny Koretsky had the biggest moment of his Pro Stock driving career as runner-up to Anderson.
2005 Anderson outran Richie Stevens Jr.'s Dodge Stratus, 6.71 to 6.77, to record his fourth win at the Big Go.
2006 For his fourth straight Indy title, Anderson defeated Dave Connolly, 6.68 to 6.72.
2011 After a five-year drought, Anderson returned to the Indy winner's circle with a finalround triumph over Summit Racing Equipment teammate Jason Line, the No. 1 qualifier.
