MADISON, Ill. (June 24, 2006) -- Although he may not have been the quickest car out there, Jason Line was one of the more consistent as he qualified No. 8 on the final qualifying ladder for the 10th annual NHRA O'Reilly Midwest Nationals.

Line, from Terrell, N.C. by way of Wright, Minn., drove his KB Racing LLC/Summit Racing Equipment Pro Stock Pontiac GTO to an elapsed time of 6.712 seconds, his best of the four qualifying sessions.

"I know how to win this thing," said Line, following the last qualifying session. First, I've got to have great lights. Next I've got to run perfect races and anytime I don't I've got to have a lot of luck. It will all be up to me to win this race just like we did last weekend. We have a great team here at KB Racing and they know how to get the job done. We're going to do our best to put this Summit Racing Pontiac in the winner's circle one more time."

Heading into eliminations for the NHRA O'Reilly Midwest Nationals, Line and his teammate, three-time and reigning NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champion Greg Anderson, currently sit atop the Pro Stock point standings. Anderson leads the way, while Line is No. 2.

In the opening round tomorrow, Line will face will Dave Howard. Howard qualified No. 9 with a pass of 6.718 seconds at 205.44 mph on his final qualifying run.

Line begins his quest for the O'Reilly Midwest Nationals Pro Stock title on Sunday, June 25, with eliminations for all professional classes beginning at 3 p.m. All times are local St. Louis time (CT) and subject to change at anytime.
