Jason Line produced the two best Pro Stock qualifying runs today, including driving his Summit Racing Equipment Chevrolet Camaro into the top starting position for tomorrow’s 28th annual NHRA Nationals here at Maple Grove Raceway with a fourth-round pass of 6.515 seconds at 212.36 miles per hour.
Cool, overcast conditions led to several leader changes during the fourth qualifying session prior to Line’s final-pair pass, and with Sunday’s forecast for clouds and temperatures in the 50s, the reigning NHRA Full Throttle Pro Stock champion believes race day could produce even quicker results.
“If it gets into the 50s, we could reset the record (6.477 seconds, which he set under similar weather conditions at last year’s race here),” he added.
A record brings 20 bonus points, which could be crucial in his chase of Alan Johnson, who leads Line by approximately five rounds in the Countdown to the Championship.
