COMMERCE, Ga. (April 27, 2007) -- Jason Line goes after his second win of the season when qualifying for the 27th annual Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Southern Nationals starts today.

Line went to the final round at Phoenix before finishing runner-up and then won the Pro Stock title at Houston in his KB Racing LLC-owned, Summit Racing Equipment Pontiac GTO two races ago.

At Atlanta Dragway, site of this weekend's event, Line, the reigning NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champion, finished runner-up to his teammate Greg Anderson in 2005.

"Probably needless to say, but we didn't have the type of race we are capable of at the last event in Las Vegas," said Line, who hails from Wright, Minn., and now lives in the Mooresville, N.C. area. "I've put our problems from that race behind me and am now completely focused on Atlanta. I've a little success there in the past and there is a wealth of information available from both our crew chief Rob Downing and Greg on set ups for all types of conditions at Atlanta Dragway. We should be good to go and would like to come away with a win for our sponsor Summit Racing."

After five events on the $50 million, 23-event NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series, and the fifth of 17 events in the first segment of the Countdown to the Championship, Anderson leads the Pro Stock point standings and Line is second.
