Summit Racing–Summit Racing Shines on Abbreviated Second Day of Indy Qualifying

Summit Racing Shines on Abbreviated Second Day of Indy Qualifying
BROWNSBURG, Ind., August 31, 2013 – The second day of qualifying at the 59th annual Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals was shortened by one session due to a deluge of rain that canceled the evening session but didn’t dampen the spirits of the hard-charging Summit Racing Pro Stock team. Drivers Greg Anderson and Jason Line were more than pleased with the overall outcome of the day as Anderson protected his position as the No. 4 man in the qualifying order and Line made the quickest pass of the day for the Pro Stock cars to earn three coveted bonus points.
Line and Anderson lined up side-by-side during the afternoon session of qualifying on Saturday to take both of the Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaros for a quick journey down the quarter-mile dragstrip. The hot racetrack didn’t allow for much improvement, if any, for the competitors in the category, but Anderson clocked a 6.718 at 205.63 mph that was eighth best out of the plump field of 23 cars jockeying for position. In the opposite lane, Line raced to a 6.690 at 206.95 that was a hundredth of a second ahead of the next quickest car in the session and the only car to run in the 6.60-zone.
“That was arguably the best run I’ve made all season long,” said Line. “It was a nice run, and I felt like coming here, the KB Racing team had the ability to do that. But saying it is one thing; doing it is another. All our Summit Racing guys did a good job today, and I didn’t mess it up – so I was pretty happy.”
Although Anderson didn’t achieve the results he was hoping for on day two of the event, he was extremely encouraged by his partner’s solid pass.
“We missed a little bit on my run today but Jason’s car made a very nice run,” said Anderson. “We know we can run fast with both of our Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaros, so we’ll look forward to tomorrow. We’re disappointed to lose that second run today because you always think you can improve with every shot out there, but we’re all in the same boat – every driver out here wanted that second run. We’re all dealt the same set of cards. It’s been a tough, hot weekend but it looks like we’re able to perform just fine in these conditions. We’ll just have to make the right decisions tomorrow morning and hopefully both of our KB Racing cars will be fast and we can move up the ladder.”
