Line Takes a Step in the Right Direction during Friday's Winternationals Qualifying

Jason Line and the Summit Racing team rebounded nicely from a mechanical failure suffered on their opening attempt on Thursday, posting the eighth quickest time and second fastest top speed of the second qualifying session at the 50th annual O'Reilly Kragen Winternationals in Pomona, CA. Despite being one of the first of the 23 cars to make an attempt, Line tripped the finish line timers in 6.640-seconds with a top speed of 209.79 mph to place 10th midway through the qualifying procedure.

Although pleased to have made progress, the 2006 Pro Stock champion realized further improvement would be necessary by the KB Racing crew in order to place themselves in a good position to successfully defend their win at this event a year ago.

"It was far from a good run, but at least it gives this Summit Racing crew something to build on," said Line. "For some reason, the track does not seem to have any traction, and we have to tune our race cars to compensate for it. We got off to a bad start yesterday, but took a step in the right direction today by making it down the track. Now that we have some current data, I'm confident we'll be better tomorrow. The good news is that we have two shots left before Sunday to get it right, and I'm pretty sure we will."
