Line Focused on Max Potential at Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals
Jason Line and the rest of the KB Racing team always looks forward to the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals as the event is in their primary sponsor’s northeast Ohio neighborhood. This year, Line is particularly eager to get to Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park in Norwalk. He is currently fourth in the Pro Stock standings, and would love nothing better than to wheel his way up in the standings with a powerful performance in his Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro.
"We'll be planning to follow through and get it done this weekend," said Line. "It always means a lot to us to have success there at our sponsor's title event, and the KB Racing team has often been able to do well at Norwalk. It's a favorite race for us, for sure."
As a team, KB Racing has won the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals three times. Line’s Summit Racing teammate Greg Anderson won in 2008 and 2010, while Line was the winner in 2009.
With just six races remaining before NHRA's Countdown to the Championship begins, there are only 16 points separating positions two through four in the points standings.
"At this point in the season, everything is so close," said Line. "It makes it exciting, but it also means that there is a lot of work going on to try to break away from everyone else. Sometimes it's difficult to focus as a driver in times like this, but you really have no excuses. We are very focused as a team on putting a Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro in the winner's circle this week in Norwalk."
