Big race for Line coming up

PETERSBURG, Va. (October 2, 2007) -- The second annual NHRA Torco Racing Fuels Nationals this weekend at Virginia Motorsports Park in Petersburg, Va., just a short drive from Richmond, is a BIG race for reigning Pro Stock champion Jason Line, perhaps the biggest of his professional career to date.

It is the last chance for Line, driver of one of the two KB Racing LLC-owned, Summit Racing Equipment Pro Stock Pontiacs, to move into top four drivers in points if he wants to repeat as the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champion.

Currently Line, from Mooresville, N.C., is 18 points behind fourth place, but is optimistic about his chances to overcome the deficit.

"I like the track," said Line. "We did well at Virginia Motorsports Park last year. There are a lot of Pro Stock fans there. We set the national records there, so obviously it a fast race track. Generally speaking, it's the type of race track we run best at. I'm going to be cautiously optimistic, but I have high hopes for this weekend.

"Naturally, we're going to go there and do our best but the plan is to put this Summit Racing Pontiac in the winner's circle. We're working on a new car for there. This is a big, big race and we feel the new car will give us a performance boost."
