Jason Line wants to visit winner's circle at sponsor's race
NORWALK, Ohio (June 26, 2007) -- Jason Line, driver of the KB Racing LLC Summit Racing Equipment Pontiac GTO, is looking to get back to business at this weekend's inaugural Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals at a new venue -- the Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park -- the newly renovated track owned by Bill Bader and family.
"We have one of the greatest sponsors in all motorsports," said Line as he gets ready to vie for the Pro Stock title in Norwalk, Ohio. "The people from Summit Racing support not only KB Racing and other teams in drag racing but they support all types of motorsports. I appreciate being able to represent them.
"It will be great to see all the Summit folks at Norwalk from their headquarters in Tallmadge, Ohio and since I have never been to the winner's circle at a Summit Racing sponsored event, now would be a good time to do it. The odds are getting in my favor. Eventually, the tide got to turn and things are going to come around. What better place for it to happen than Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park.
"I'm excited about going to the track in Norwalk. I've tested there but never raced there, but I've heard a lot of good things about the track. From what I hear the Bader Family has poured a lot of dollars into the facility and I looking for to seeing the finish product.
