SONOMA, Calif. (July 29, 2006) -- Running a career best elapsed time of 6.636 seconds in Saturday's morning qualifying session, Jason Line, who drives the KB Racing LLC-owned, Summit Racing Equipment-backed Pontiac GTO, qualified in the No. 2 position at this weekend's NHRA FRAM Autolite National.

"I was happy with the morning run but the car went hard left, so we didn't take full advantage of the pass," said Line, following qualifying. "We have more left in the Summit Racing Pontiac and that's good. We know there's a little more out there but (teammate) Greg (Anderson) and I are one-two (in qualifying) and that's the good thing. Plus, we're on the opposite side of the ladder."

In tomorrow's opening round, Line faces Mark Pawuk, who qualified No. 15 (6.693/206.73). Entering eliminations, Line, who holds the top spot in the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock point standings, leads the second place Greg Anderson by 24 points and third place Dave Connolly by 62 points.
