For episode 19 Lake Speed Jr heads over to KB Racing to see Greg Anderson and get an up-close look at how NHRA’s winningest driver hones an engine block.

Greg’s method for honing to size and plateau finish texture is one of the secrets behind his record setting 100th Pro Stock win, so, if you’re into winning, it’s definitely something you’ll want to watch more than once.
