Summit Racing–Line Looks Forward to Fresh View at New England Dragway

Line Looks Forward to Fresh View at New England Dragway
MOORESVILLE, N.C., June 19, 2013 – Jason Line and the Summit Racing Pro Stock team are extremely focused at all times on a very specific set of goals that revolve around one thing: having the best hot rods on the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series tour. For Line, a championship-caliber driver and expert dyno operator who packs one half of the KB Racing one-two punch alongside teammate Greg Anderson, this weekend’s Inaugural NHRA New England Nationals will be a new setting and an exciting new challenge.
“We’ve never had the chance to race at New England Dragway before,” said Line. “And the Summit Racing team is definitely looking forward to it. It’s always fun to go someplace new, and we’ve heard that they’re expecting a pretty big crowd to come out and watch the race. It’ll be neat for us to get there and put on a good show for all those fans. They’ve been waiting for this a long time, so it’s going to be exciting for all of us.”
Line, who began his drag racing career in Minnesota and now resides in North Carolina, has won 30 national events in the extremely competitive Pro Stock category and has claimed victory at 16 different racetracks on the tour. Scoring at the facility in Epping is, of course, high on the to-do list for the motivated driver.
So far this season, Line has a win on his scorecard – he was the last man standing in Houston this spring – and has qualified in the top half at each of the 10 events. To date, he has been fifth or better during qualifying in his Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro six times, including just last week at Bristol Dragway in Bristol, Tenn., when he drove his way to the semifinals for the second consecutive event.
“Team Summit has worked very hard this year, just like always, to make our Camaros faster, and we are going to keep working,” said Line. “New England Dragway is a racetrack that is close to sea level, and that sets up some pretty good conditions for these Pro Stock cars. Hopefully, our hard work will show there this weekend. It’s always fun to go someplace new, and we’d sure like to make a good first impression there with our Summit Racing hot rods.”
