Jason Line claims No. 6 spot at Topeka

TOPEKA, Kan. (June 2, 2007) -- Jason Line, the reigning NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champ, claimed the No. 6 position on the final qualifying ladder for the 19th annual NHRA O'Reilly Summer Nationals being held this weekend at Heartland Park Topeka (HPT).

Line's best qualifying pass down the HPT quarter-mile was in the final session when he recorded an elapsed time of 6.728 seconds at 205.98 mph.

"That final run was the best for us. I botched the shift a little bit, but I still take it," said Line, the driver of one of the two Summit Racing Equipment Pontiacs fielded by KB Racing LLC. "I'm happier than I've been in a few races going into tomorrow. All the cars are bunched close together. It will be who hits the set up the best and who drives the best. I'm due for a little bit better job of driving, so hopefully will have a good day tomorrow."

Line will be matched against Larry Morgan in the opening round tomorrow. Morgan qualified No. 11 with a run of 6.749 seconds at 204.94 mph.
