Improving on Every Run, Line Qualifies Ninth at the Winternationals

Jason Line and the Summit Racing team completed a solid qualifying effort on Saturday, capturing the ninth starting spot for Sunday's final eliminations of the 50th annual Kragen O'Reilly Winternationals in Pomona, CA. Improving on every run, Line posted the third quickest time of the round at 6.619 seconds along with the second-fastest top speed of the weekend at 210.24 mph to earn his spot in the starting field. However, despite this encouraging progress, the 2009 Winternationals winner turned his attention towards further advancing his race car's performance for race day. . "We kept improving our Summit Racing Pontiac throughout qualifying, but we still have some work to do before tomorrow," said Line. "We're not running as well as we did here in the fall, and even though we did a little better today, we've still left a lot on the table, which we'll need to put ourselves in contention to repeat our winning performance from last year.

"We know the track is not going to get substantially better, so we have to figure out how to make our car happier on this particular surface. Fortunately, we have a good group of guys here on the KB Racing team, and I'm fully confident we'll make things better by the first round tomorrow."
