Line Saves the Best for Last, Qualifies Third in Denver

Summit Racing driver Jason Line celebrated his birthday in fine fashion on Saturday, capturing the third starting position for Sunday's final eliminations of the Mopar Mile-High Nationals in Denver, CO. With the combination of cloud cover and cooler temperatures providing the best conditions of the weekend for the Pro Stock Cars, Line took full advantage, powering through the quarter-mile in 6.993-seconds with a top speed of 197.10 mph to become one of only three drivers to crack the six-second barrier. Encouraged by having matched his best qualifying performance of the season, he then turned his attention on finding a way to the Bandimere Speedway winner's circle on Sunday.

"We finally got closer to where we need to be with our Summit Racing Pontiac on that last run," said Line. "Not only did it make a fairly decent run, it also got us back to having lane choice for the first round, so I'm pretty happy with our performance. We still need to do a little work on the tune-up, and once we do that, we should be in a good position for tomorrow. All in all, I'd have to say it was a pretty good birthday, although it would have been a lot better if my wife and kids were here to celebrate it with me."
