E.T. record, win, points lead: Line's goal at Torco Nationals

DINWIDDIE, Va. (October 4, 2006) -- Jason Line, driver of the KB Racing LLC-owned, Summit Racing Equipment-backed Pontiac GTO, leads the Pro Stock point standing entering this weekend's Inaugural NHRA Torco Nationals which gets underway at Virginia Motorsports Park located in Dinwiddie, Va., just a short drive from Richmond, with qualifying beginning Friday.

His goals at the Richmond track is to qualify well, preferable in the top four, go rounds (the final round and a win would suit him just right) and leave with the point lead.

"While no different than any other driver here, that a lot harder than it sounds, but it can be done," said Line, who has been on the top of the NHRA Pro Stock POWERade point standings since Denver. "My Summit Racing Pontiac can get the job done. I must add to the equation a lot of focus. You can't get the job done if you don't focus."

Line leads the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock point standing by 56 points over teammate Greg Anderson, who holds the second position, and by 183 points over third place Dave Connolly.

Entering the Torco Nationals, Line not only leads the points but he is the NHRA Pro Stock elapsed time national record holder. He blazed the Maple Grove Raceway last weekend in a previously unheard time of 6.609 seconds.

"I still can't get over how cool it is to have that record," reflected Line. "I definitely want to leave here with the record intact or better yet, if conditions are right, I would like to be the driver that lowers it again."
