Line would like to duplicate last year's win at FRAM Autolite Nationals

SONOMA, Calif. (July 25, 2007) -- "This weekend would be a total success if I could duplicate my last year's effort here this weekend," said Jason Line, driver of the KB Racing LLC, Summit Racing Equipment Pontiac GTO, as he set his sights on winning the upcoming 20th annual NHRA FRAM Autolite Nationals at Infineon Raceway.

With only this race and two more remaining in the first segment of the Countdown to the Championship, Line knows it's time for him and his Summit Racing Pontiac to make a move.

"We've had some issues and inconsistencies over the last few races and now need to turn those problems into opportunities and direct our focus to the second and third segment of the Countdown," added Line, as he seeks to repeat as the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock Champion. (For more on the Countdown to the Championship, see below.)

Both Summit Racing Equipment Pontiacs had banner days at last year's event. Not only did Line win, but his teammate Greg Anderson set the Infineon Raceway elapsed time -- 6.631 seconds -- and top speed -- 207.82 mph -- track records last year.

"Each race our goal is for the two Summit Pontiacs to reach the final round. For the year our goal continues to be that Greg and I finish in the top two spots in the final point count. I firmly believe that, while it won't be easy, we can achieve that goal. There are a lot of good cars out here and all are capable of winning, but I believe we can get the job done," concluded Line.
