Jason Line after fourth consecutive win at Raceway Park

ENGLISHTOWN, N.J. (June 20, 2007) -- Reigning NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champion Jason Line goes after his fourth consecutive win at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park when qualifying begins on Friday for the professional classes at the 38th annual NHRA ProCare Rx SuperNationals.

Line has put his KB Racing LLC Summit Racing Equipment Pro Stock Pontiac GTO in the winner's circle in 2004 (over Kurt Johnson), 2005 (over Warren Johnson), and 2006 (over Dave Connolly), becoming the only Pro Stock driver to win three consecutive races at Raceway Park. In fact, KB Racing has had a driver in the winner's circle for the last five years as Line's teammate, Greg Anderson, won here in 2002 (over Jeg Coughlin) and 2003 (over Darrell Alderman).

After nine events, Line is currently fourth in the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock point standings. With five wins this season in five final-round appearances, Greg Anderson, also in a KB Racing LLC Summit Racing Equipment Pro Stock Pontiac GTO leads the POWERade Pro Stock standings with 836 points. Line has 593 points, 243 points behind his teammate. Sandwiched in between Anderson and Line is Jeg Coughlin in second with 657 points (-179) and Coughlin's teammate Dave Connolly, with 607 points (-229), in third.

Line has been to three finals rounds in 2007, winning one. For his career he has 13 wins in 27 final rounds.

"There are reasons for our success at KB Racing and a large part of that success can be attributed to the team that has been assembled here," said Line on the eve of the start of racing at Englishtown. "We started the year with a lot of new employees and they have developed, growing into their role here at KB Racing. I see a lot of positives and we will only get better through the remainder of this season and on into the future. It's not just the driver that is responsible for the wins here, it is the entire crew."
