Line to use BIR to get ready for the next segment of the Countdown

BRAINERD, Minn. (August 7, 2007) -- Jason Line's racing career began at Brainerd International Raceway (BIR) and he hopes to continue the past success he has had on the track here at the 28th annual NHRA Lucas Oil Nationals this weekend.

"I spent a lot of time on the track in Brainerd early in my racing career," said Line, "and it's always good to return. I've had success at BIR and hope that this weekend will kick-start my bid for the Pro Stock championship.

"The next two races, including the one here this weekend, need to propel you into the next segment of the Countdown. Even though we have a spot in the second segment, you must be ready at Indy and the five races that follow or you will be left behind. A win here would go a long way in giving this KB Racing team momentum for the Countdown to the Championship."

The two KB Racing Summit Pontiacs have been permanent fixtures in the last four NHRA POWERade Championships. Line took everything in 2006 and his teammate Greg Anderson won three consecutive titles from 2003 through 2005.
