Jason Line looks for good things to happen for remainder of season

MORRISON, Colo. (July 11, 2007) -- Denver is where it all turned around last season for reigning NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champ Jason Line, driver of the KB Racing LLC Summit Racing Equipment Pontiac GTO.

A runner-up finish on the Bandimere Speedway track at last year's NHRA Mopar Mile-High Nationals propelled Line to the No. 1 position in POWERade points, a position he never relinquished fro the remainder of the 2006 season.

While Line's driving this season, especially his reaction time at the lights, has been placed under the microscope, Line feels that he is turning the corner on that so-called problem.

"I won't say my driving has won awards but I have been in three finals and I'm currently fourth in points," said Line as he looked toward the Denver race. "I've been on both sides of perfect this season. That is to say, there are times I've been late and most recently times I've been early. But at least I have experience both and it is now my job to get my reaction time between the two extremes. I am now more comfortable in the car and see good things happening for the remainder of this season."

Last year Line was the No. 1 qualifier here and holds both the track elapsed time record (7.062 seconds) and top speed record (195.65 mph), both run in 2006.

After 12 events, Line is fourth with 717 points, 312 behind the leader, teammate Greg Anderson.
