Line looks to peak over last 10 races

KENT, Wash. (July 17, 2007) -- With four races left in the first segment of the Countdown to the Championship, including this weekend's 20th annual NHRA Schuck's Auto Supply Nationals, and 10 overall in the remainder of the 2007 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series season, Jason Line knows it is time for him and his KB Racing LLC, Summit Racing Equipment Pontiac GTO to peak.

"I feel that the team and driver that will win the 2007 POWERade championship will be the team that comes to the forefront and the time to do that is to show what you have over the next 10 races," reflected Line, as he prepares for the race this weekend at Pacific Raceways in Kent, Wash.

"Over the last 10 races last year, I had my Summit Racing Pontiac in six final rounds. I need to do the same thing this year beginning right here in Seattle. We have the power plant to do that again this year, the rest will be up to me.

"I like the Seattle track because you can generate a lot of power there. I think I was number one there last year but this year I need to close the deal."

At Pacific Raceways last year, in the 100 degree plus heat, Line did drive his KB Racing LLC-owned, Summit Racing Equipment-backed Pontiac to the top spot in qualifying, running a 6.690-second pass. Since turning pro in 2003, Line, the reigning NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champ, is still looking for his first Seattle win.
