Line Edges Justin Humphreys at Brainerd Race

Justin Humphreys threw a scare into No.  1 Pro Stock qualifier Jason Line in
Sunday's opening round of the Lucas Oil  Nationals at Brainerd International
Raceway, but he couldn't prevent Line  from getting the win light.

Humphreys started from the No. 16 spot and that means racing the quickest qualifier. Humphreys' RaceRedi Motorsports/Knoll Gas Energy Pontiac GTO registered his best elapsed time of the weekend, 6.707 seconds at 207.45 mph, but it wasn't enough to hold off Line's 6.690 at 207.02.

"The weekend wasn't too bad," said Humphreys.  "We struggled a little  in
qualifying on Saturday but we were in the top three for speed on  our last run.
We changed all kinds of things before first round and  the car seemed to run a
little better.  We must improve in some places  and we still have a few things
to get squared away, but I'm looking forward to  going to Maple Grove (site
of the Toyo Tires Nationals, Aug. 17-19, at  Maple Grove Raceway, Reading,
Pa.).  It's one of the tracks that  is closest to home (Monrovia, Md.)."

Humphreys is in his first full season of NHRA Pro Stock competition.
