PRO STOCK:

Quote from Jason Line on qualifying No. 1 after two of four qualifying sessions:

"The conditions were good," said Line."The starting line is really good, and down track we struggled a little bit, but all in all it was a great run.I didn't think it was going to be that good, at least in the car it didn't feel that good.But really, it was pretty phenomenal, especially the back half.I don't think we thought we'd run that kind of speed here at Phoenix, but I think it's going to be fast here all weekend.As the whole class gets used to the racetrack, it's going to get faster. We feel like there's definitely something left there, for sure.I know we say that about every run, but I honestly do feel like there's something left, and not just for us, but for everybody."
