Line's pursuit of point championship moves to Dallas
ENNIS, Texas. (September 19, 2006) -- Jason Line, driver of one of the two KB Racing LLC-owned, Summit Racing Equipment-backed Pontiac GTOs, resumes his pursuit of his first NHRA Pro Stock POWERade championship at the 21st annual NHRA O'Reilly Fall Nationals after relentless rains forced the postponement of the NHRA Toyo Tires Nationals this past weekend in Reading, Penn.
Coming into the O'Reilly Fall Nationals, Line leads the Pro Stock point standing by 59 points over teammate Greg Anderson, who holds the second position, and by 135 points over third place Dave Connolly. Kurt Johnson is in fourth, 296 points back and Allen Johnson (no relation to Kurt) rounds out the top five, 314 points behind first.
Following the rain out in Reading, Line had the following thoughts as he headed to Dallas: "While I would like to say that I'm completely comfortable with my chance of winning the championship, I know I won't be completely comfortable until it's over. Call it pressure or call it what you want but there are still two drivers out there, my teammate (Greg Anderson) and Dave Connolly, besides me, who have a chance to win this thing and a few others who can have a say in the outcome. But, I continue to feel that I can win the championship. The Reading deal only makes it longer before we get to the end of the season to find out."
Of two visits (2004 and 2005) to the quick and fast all-concrete quarter-mile at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas, just outside Dallas, Line's best outing was last year when he qualified number two and finished runner-up to Anderson.
