Line No. 4 qualifier at conclusion of very fast day in Englishtown
ENGLISHTOWN, N.J. (May 31, 2014) – Pro Stock driver Jason Line powered his blue Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro to one of the fastest runs in Pro Stock history at historic Old Bridge Township Raceway Park on Saturday at the 45th annual Toyota NHRA Summernationals. The quick and fast day of qualifying was one for the record books as seven of the top 10 fastest speeds in Pro Stock history were recorded.
Line raced to a quick and fast 6.516-second pass at 213.40 mph on Friday, the first day of qualifying, to claim a new track record for speed in Englishtown, and his Summit Racing Camaro was even quicker on the second day of the event. In the early session and in pleasing conditions, Line clocked a 6.491 at an eye-catching 214.83 mph that eclipsed his own previous personal best in terms of speed. However, that still wasn’t enough. The two-time NHRA Pro Stock world champion blasted to a remarkable 6.488 at 214.52 in the final round of qualifying.
“The Summit Racing Camaros are really improving,” said Line. “We went quicker each run with both my car and the Summit Camaro driven by my teammate, Greg Anderson, and I think we can go fast again tomorrow. That last run today was really good for a lot of drivers because we had a tail wind and the conditions were good, and hopefully tomorrow we will be the car that’s able to make four more good runs.”
Line, who has qualified in the top half at each event this season, will start from the No. 4 position. He enters raceday scheduled for a first round meeting with part-time runner John Gaydosh, who is starting 13th. It will be the first time Line and Gaydosh have raced this season.
If Line is able to defeat his first-round challenger and also move past the second round, he could meet up with Anderson in the semifinals, thereby assuring a Summit Racing Camaro reaches the final round in Englishtown. Eight times before a Summit Racing car has won the event at the venue known as Raceway Park.
“This has been a good track for us,” said Line, who has claimed three of the eight titles for the KB Racing team in Englishtown. “We have a good shot for tomorrow. We’re certainly in a good place.”
