NHRA Carolina Nationals postponed, will conclude in Dallas ne
Concord, N.C., September 14, 2014 – Summit Racing Pro Stock driver Jason Line set low e.t. of the event during the first round of eliminations at the seventh annual NHRA Carolina Nationals with a brilliantly quick 6.533 at 210.93, but he will have to wait until next week to continue his quest for the title as rain set into the Charlotte area-based zMAX Dragway and the event was postponed.
“When we do get to finish this race, my Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro will be ready,” said Line, who won the rain-delayed Lucas Oil Nationals that were supposed to complete in Brainerd but were instead contested two weeks later at the U.S. Nationals. “Maybe that will work out for us again.”
Line’s quick and fast run beat Chris McGaha’s 6.856 at 157 mph. Teammate Greg Anderson put up a good fight against Jeg Coughlin, leaving the starting line within .005-second of his opponent, but both cars had some trouble down track and Coughlin got the win light, 6.629, 187.11 to 6.696, 180.55.
Eliminations for the NHRA Carolina Nationals will be run concurrently with qualifying sessions on Friday and Saturday at the AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals at Texas Motorplex near Dallas, September 19-21.
