Line focused on performing at max potential at Summit Racing’s title event
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (July 1, 2014) – The annual Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals in Norwalk is an event that the Summit Racing Pro Stock team eagerly anticipates each season. This year, Jason Line is particularly eager to arrive at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park as the KB Racing team has been showing continuous improvement. Now No. 4 in the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Pro Stock standings, Line would love nothing better than to wheel his way up in the standings with a powerful performance in his Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro.
As the season has progressed, expectations for the team have grown. Line kicked off the season with a win at the NHRA Winternationals in Pomona, and a final round appearance in Las Vegas at the SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals added fuel to the team’s fire. Just last week in Chicago, Line was fired up again as he reached his third final of the season. Now a 32-time NHRA Pro Stock winner, Line is in hot pursuit of win No. 33.
“This weekend, we’ll be planning to follow through and get it done,” said Line. “It was pretty disappointing to walk away without the trophy for Summit Racing last weekend, but to get it in Norwalk would be very special for this whole team. It always means a lot to us to have success there at our sponsor’s title event, and the KB Racing team has quite often been able to do well there. It’s a favorite race for us, for sure.”
Line and his Summit Racing teammate Greg Anderson won the event in three consecutive seasons; Anderson won in 2008 and 2010, while Line was the winner in 2009. A Summit Racing Pro Stocker has also sat atop the field in qualifying three times: 2007, 2008 and 2009.
With just six races remaining before NHRA’s Countdown to the Championship begins, there are only 16 points separate positions two through four in the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series standings.
“At this point in the season, everything is so close,” said Line. “It makes it exciting, but it also means that there is a lot of work going on to try to break away from everyone else. Sometimes it’s difficult to focus as a driver in times like this, but you really have no excuses. We had a good showing for Team Summit last week and are very focused as a team on putting a Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro in the winner’s circle this week in Norwalk.”
