Line Qualifies Number One, Sets Low ET of Eliminations in Denver
Jason Line was in command of a very powerful race car this weekend at the 35th annual Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals. He wheeled the Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro to the Number One qualifying position and also ran the lowest elapsed time of eliminations en route to a semifinals finish at one of the most challenging race tracks on the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series tour.
Line scored an upset in the final session of qualifying, unseating Allen Johnson to qualify first with a 6.924 second, 198.70 MPH run. Line set low ET of the round in his Round One matchup with Steve Kalkowski, running a 6.931/198.61 to Kalkowski’s 7.218/188.73. Line set low ET again in Round Two, defeating KB Racing-powered Vincent Nobile 6.932/198.32 to 6.979/197.48.
Line was loaded for bear in the semifinals meeting with Jeg Coughlin, Jr. Line came out of the gate with a .017 second reaction time and ran the quickest ET of eliminations. But Coughlin’s .002 second reaction time gave him the win, 6.931/198.76 to Line’s 6.924/198.64.
“We ran very well this weekend with our Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaros,” said Line. “We were Number One qualifier, set low ET of eliminations, and set low ET for five runs in a row. It’s a little frustrating to not get to the winner’s circle when you have that kind of power, but at the same time it’s also very encouraging. I can’t wait to get to the next race.”
Line is currently fourth in the Pro Stock points standings.
