The relationship of Greg has always interested his fans. So, let’s learn about his wife with this Kimberly Anderson Bio. Scroll down, as this article unfolds further information on her.
Meet Kimberly Anderson, Drag Racer Greg Anderson’s Wife
The question on how Kimberly Anderson and Greg Anderson met for the first time yet needs answering. However, after they met and started for an undefined time, the dating couple tied the knots on 9 August 1997. Their marriage gave them a son named Cody Anderson who was born on 24 August 1998.
Cody was born in Mooresville, North Carolina. He attended Lake Norman High School. He is currently in a relationship with Tamara Lovinelli.
The family spends a lot of time together. When not working with motors or in the race, Greg spends time with his wife and kids.
In an interview with Draglist, Greg shared, “I work on engines at the shop. My wife is ready to strangle me because I never come home. I have a 4-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter and I don’t see them as much as I want to or should. That is bad and that has to change. It’s like I said before, I don’t want to get to the point where I don’t work on the car, but I have to spend more time at home because the family suffers.”
“The sad part is that if somebody weren’t doing this work every hour of every day, I wouldn’t be where I am. If I just went home every day and let well enough be good enough, then we wouldn’t win races. It has to be like that, but I have to get to the point where other people can do the work so I can go home every once in a while,” he added further.
Greg ended the post with, “It’s hard on the family and I have a great family and this is too hard on them. They come to all of the races in the summer, but the kids are back in school, so they don’t come to as many fall events. It’s good to see them at the track. They come to the shop, but they don’t stay too long. Kids don’t want to be around the greasy shops long.”
Before meeting Greg, Kim was in a relationship with the one Steven Michael Kellum. Together, they had a daughter named Brittany Kellum who was born in 1990.

While we are at it, let’s go through Greg’s career as a racer. During an interview, Greg revealed his father raced who was a division racer from Minnesota. So, he got his start from his father.
As years went by, he couldn’t race the national tour because he had a full-time job. Because of the racing career, Greg was away from the family a lot and Greg’s mother didn’t appreciate him being away from the family so much so Greg’s father decided to give it up and spend more time with the family.
Moreover, his father was close with John Hagen who used to race in Pro Stock in Minneapolis. Because of his father’s connection, Greg ended up getting a job working on John’s car. For four or five years, he worked as John’s crew chief before he was killed racing at Brainerd in 1983.
After that, Greg went back to his hometown, started working with his dad at his car dealership for nearly three years.
In 1986, Greg was at the Brainerd race just watching the race where Kurt Johnson and Warren Johnson saw him there. They wanted to know if he wanted to get back into it. They flew him down to Georgia and by that time they had moved their shop where he looked over operations. When the opportunity came to work with Warren, he took it.
Greg went to Pomona and that is how he learned to drive a truck. They worked together for three or four years before Warren decided to split up. Kurt took over the responsibility of the shop while Warren and Greg started racing.
