Jason Line claims No. 10 at Vegas

LAS VEGAS (April 8, 2006) -- Other than seeing his teammate Greg Anderson qualify No. 1, qualifying for the NHRA SummitRacing.com Nationals wasn't much fun for Jason Line, driver of the KB Racing LLC/Summit Racing Equipment Pontiac GTO.

Line best of four qualifying efforts was a pass of 6.814 seconds at 202.76 mph, good for the No. 10 position on the final Pro Stock qualifying ladder. It was only the ninth time in 55 races that Line hasn't qualifying in the top half of the 16-car field.

After qualifying No. 1 at the last race in Houston and going to the semifinal round, our expectations were high coming here to The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway," said Line. "We plan to work as late as necessary tonight to find and correct our problem and be ready for eliminations tomorrow."

Line will face Dave Howard, who qualified No. 7 with an elapsed time of 6.797 seconds, in the opening round of tomorrow's eliminations. In two previous meetings between the two, Line has won both.
