Summit Racing–Line Looking for Father’s Day Celebration to Continue Summit Racing’s Success at Bristol Dragway

Line Looking for Father’s Day Celebration to Continue Summit Racing’s Success at Bristol Dragway

MOORESVILLE, N.C., June 17, 2015 – Father’s Day is a very special time for Jason Line. Dad to Jack and Emma, the driver of the blue Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro would like to celebrate with his kids in the winner’s circle this weekend at the 15th annual NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals and make his own dad, Lawrence Line, proud.

Currently No. 3 in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Pro Stock points and with two wins in three final rounds already on his scorecard for the season, it is certainly a possibility for the second-generation drag racer.

In fact, the first three times KB Racing competitor Line contested Pro Stock on Father’s Day, he won the event – 2004, 2005 and 2006 in Englishtown. Sweetening the story is the fact that he won the Bristol race in 2006 and it was his first win after becoming a father that January to Jack.

“I don’t believe the Bristol race was on Father’s Day that year, but it was still a very special weekend for me,” said Line, who was also the No. 1 qualifier at the event. “The Bristol race is a great race for all of us at KB Racing – my teammate, Greg Anderson, won his first race there in 2001. We all like going to Bristol Dragway. We haven’t won there in quite a while, but that is going to change this year. We’re going to run well there this year.”

The KB Racing drivers have put their Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaros in the winner’s circle five times already this year, and they have already recorded two all-Summit Racing final rounds; Anderson beat Line in Gainesville and Line turned the tables with a win over his teammate at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Southern Nationals in Atlanta. Only three finals this year have not included at least one Summit Racing Camaro, and Anderson is currently in the points lead.

“I think our KB Racing team is in better shape than we have been in years,” said Line. “I’m very optimistic about going to every race right now. Everyone has worked very hard, and we are able to really contend for a win each week. I’m trying to be better and better every race and I think we have a very good chance of having a Summit Racing Camaro in the winner’s circle in Bristol.”
