Line Opens Dallas Qualifying in Second

Racers and fans endured unseasonably warm conditions during the first day of qualifying for the O'Reilly Super Start Batteries Fall Nationals in Ennis, TX with temperatures soaring into the mid 90's with humidity to match. Coming off their No. 1 qualifying performance in Charlotte a week ago, Jason Line and the Summit Racing team continued to run well, posting two of the quickest runs among the 21 Pro Stock Cars attempting to qualify. After opening with a class-leading 6.644-second time in the afternoon session, the 2006 Pro Stock champion came back with an equally impressive 6.637-second, 207.34 mph pass in the evening to slot second midway through qualifying.

"I'm excited about my Summit Racing Pontiac's performance today," said Line. "The car was really good and made two nice runs. Even so, we still didn't do everything as well as we should have, so we're absolutely positively going to make it better tomorrow.

"We have our work cut out for us to catch that big honking Hemi, but I believe we can do it. I know the conditions are forecasted to change by tomorrow, but we should be just fine. Let's just say I'm pretty darn happy with how things are going, and am excited heading into the rest of the weekend."
