NORWALK, Ohio -- Greg Anderson won $50,000 by winning in the K&N Horsepower Challenge, a special bonus event for Pro Stock competitors at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals on Saturday.

Anderson used a quicker reaction at the start to upset top-seed Mike Edwards. In a match-up between Pontiac GXPs, Anderson crossed the finish line first in the final round with a 6.685-second run at a top speed of 206.23 mph before Edwards could catch him with his quicker performance of 6.677 at 207.11.

If Anderson can win Sunday at Motorsports Park, he will pocket an additional $25,000 bonus for sweeping both events.

All of Friday's qualifying leaders remained atop their respective categories as Larry Dixon (Top Fuel), Ashley Force Hood (Funny Car), Jeg Coughlin (Pro Stock) and Steve Johnson (Pro Stock Motorcycle) will lead their divisions into Sunday's eliminations.
