Periodic rains wash out qualifying on Saturday Line No. 4

BAYTOWN, Texas (March 31, 2007) -- Jason Line, driver of one the two KB Racing LLC, Summit Racing Equipment Pontiacs, was right when he said in prerace comments that weather would play a big part in this weekend's 20th annual NHRA O'Reilly Spring Nationals.

While Line was talking about heat and humidity, it was an overnight rain, many times torrential, that lasted periodically into the late afternoon today that was the problem. It finally caused NHRA to cancel all today's action.

"I hate that we didn't have the opportunity to go after that No. 1 spot today," said Line. "Between (teammate) Greg (Anderson) and me, we had a small, but nice, string going. We congratulate Jeg (Coughlin) on taking the top spot. We struggled some with the track in this Summit Pontiac this weekend and the extra runs would have come in handy. It is what it is. It's the same for everybody. We'll just move forward to tomorrow."

Line (6.676 seconds) wound up in the No. 4 position after the two sessions that were run and that will carry into eliminations tomorrow. He will face the No. 13 qualifier, Kurt Johnson (6.709 seconds).

ELIMINATIONS: Final eliminations for all teams begin at 11 a.m. tomorrow. Time is local Houston time (CT) and subject to change.
