Line will try to be a spoiler at next two races

LAS VEGAS (October 23, 2007) -- Jason Line, driver of one of the two KB Racing LLC-owned, Summit Racing Equipment Pro Stock Pontiacs, has but one job to do over the next two races and that is to run interference for his KB Racing teammate Greg Anderson.

Line, from Mooresville, N.C, will try to be at the top of his driving game as he tries to dispatch as many drivers to their trailers as he can.

"The more drivers that Greg (Anderson) doesn't have to worry about the better," said Line. "If that's a spoiler, then it is what it is. A better scenario would be if I could get lined up opposite (Dave) Connolly, Jeggie (Coughlin), or AJ (Allen Johnson) and take anyone of them out, then I might be a spoiler.

"The bottom line is that our entire KB Racing team would like to see Greg win the championship. We want to add another POWERade trophy to the last four that we have won. Consecutive I might add.

"Now don't go calling me cocky or the like. The three other drivers are here because they're good and it going to take everything we've got to come out on top from both Greg and me. We've got to do the best job we can and do the things that got us to this position in the first place. Then all we can do is hope for the best."

When qualifying begins Friday, Line will begin his quest for his 14th career win. In 2007, he has one win (at Houston over Allen Johnson) in four final rounds. He was runner-up at Phoenix, Chicago, and Sonoma.

At The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Line is still looking for his first win. He has finished runner-up twice, both at the fall edition of the two events that are held annually in Las Vegas. In 2006, he was runner-up to Richie Stevens. While, in 2004, he saw his teammate Greg Anderson cross the finish line first.
